Modern Slavery

Modern Slavery Statement

Ensuring colleagues and workers within the supply chain are protected from abuse of their human rights is a fundamental aspect of our social responsibility.

Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking policy is in place, endorsed and approved by the Highbourne Group Leadership Team, detailing the continuing commitments of our businesses City Plumbing, PTS, Direct Heating Spares, National Shower Spares and The Underfloor Heating Store in order to prevent these risks from occurring either in our own business or our supply chains.

We risk assess our product suppliers using a comprehensive list of requirements, we’ve shared best practices with selected customers and suppliers to support their own anti-slavery controls and to learn from and introduce training for all of our colleagues to identify the risks and red flags of modern slavery. We believe industry collaboration is crucial in tackling this issue.
