CarsVansandBikes Limited (“CVB”) fully supports the government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking.
We provide an online platform that allows both trade customers (motor dealers) and private customers to advertise their motor vehicles for sale. In addition we provide links to third party services including, but not limited to, loans, car insurance and etc. We have a unique and vibrant culture and a team of people who genuinely care more about our business and its customers.
CVB’s supply chain network is limited as we don’t sell an actual product but we do use the services such as data and technology products to support our business. The underlying background to these services often results in underlying Supply chains that are often complex in terms of structure with a significant number of layers.
Our anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, helping to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business. We expect all those in our entire supply chain to comply with this approach.
Prior to entering into agreements with any service provider we looked closely at their own anti-slavery and human trafficking polices and processes to ensure that they embodied that standards that we place upon ourselves.
Going forward we intend to continue to enhance our supplier due diligence process. We are introducing a risk based approach to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or our supply chain.
We have established a process to allow CVB to identify its higher risk relationships which enables us to tailor our supplier due diligence accordingly. We are continuing to refine this process. To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business we are developing the training available for our staff, and we encourage them to identify and report any potential concerns.
We will assess any instances of non‐compliance on a case‐by‐case basis and tailor any remedial action appropriately.
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and although CVB falls outside the remit to publish an annual statement this constitutes CVB’s anti‐slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2020. It sets out the steps we intends to take in the future to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
The statement has been approved by the CVB Board of Directors who will review and update it on an annual basis.
