Modern slavery statement

ChargeWorks is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending 31st March 2024. 

As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:

  1. We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
  2. We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation. 

To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:

  1. We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed. 
  2. We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business. 
  3. Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking.

Further details about our business and supply chain are provided below. 

Our mission is to accelerate your journey to net zero by providing bespoke, expert, independent advice on energy and transport. We empower decision makers in businesses, communities and homes to make choices that don’t cost the earth.

ChargeWorks has also proactively taken steps to meet with human-rights experts in order to raise awareness of the forced labour situation within the solar PV industry in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). We, and many others in the sector, are keen to get better transparency on the issue and are actively working to reduce our customers XUAR forced labor risk. 

Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.

The person in our business responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking is: Tom Cole

We also encourage all employees to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
