Modern Slavery Act
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”) requires Ferguson plc and its group of companies (“the Group”) to make an annual statement outlining the steps the business is taking to identify and prevent modern slavery within our organisation and its supply chain.
Through its various business divisions, the Group sources, distributes and sells products in mature markets in North America and Western Europe. A small percentage of the Group’s own label products are sourced from other regions, principally in Asia.
It is recognised that there could be a small risk of human trafficking or slavery in the manufacturing, distribution and logistics activities that are connected with our business. Ferguson plc has zero tolerance for such activities. The Group is undertaking a number of steps to minimise the risks of slavery occurring in our business or our supply chain.
This statement is made on behalf of all subsidiaries of Ferguson plc (www.fergusonplc.com) and is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Act and constitutes our Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 July 2017.
This statement has been approved by the Board and signed on its behalf by:
Group Chief Executive
