Modern Slavery Act

The Modern Slavery Act requires that Howarth Timber & Building Supplies Limited publicly reports the steps it has taken to ensure its operations and supply chains are free of human trafficking and slavery.

Howarth Timber & Building Supplies Limited maintains a number of key processes and activities to ensure compliance to the Act.

Howarth Timber Group Ltd takes the Modern Slavery Act 2015 very seriously and all key suppliers are required to sign up to eradicating Modern Slavery from their supply chain. Internally, purchasing staff have been trained in how to identify ‘at risk suppliers’ and must only purchase from those suppliers who we believe comply with both the spirit and the letter of the Act. Incorporating the Modern Slavery Act in to the ethos of Howarth Timber Group Ltd is important to us as a business and fits with our beliefs of sustainable supply, equal rights for all employees and working and living in a sustainable environment.
