Modern Slavery Statement
Bombardier Transportation (Rolling Stock) UK Ltd (“BTRoS”) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bombardier Transportation Group. BTRoS is comprised of 2 separate Divisions; the Interiors & Cabling Division based in Derby and the Electronics Division based near Mansfield.
The Interiors and Cabling Division was initially formed in 2010 after acquisition of two key suppliers to the rail industry (electrical & interiors). In 2012 the two divisions were merged and moved to the Derby Bombardier site occupying 8,000 m² of production floor space and 1,470 m² of warehouse storage space. In September 2015 the Division were awarded IRIS certification for their core capabilities, ensuring robust quality and operating procedures.
The Electronics Division was also formed in 2010 again following acquisition of a key supplier. Its expertise lays in the design, assembly, repair and obsolescence management of specialist real-time passenger information systems and CCTV systems primarily for the transportation sector on a global basis. BTRoS Electronics offer fully compliant solutions and customise to suit the customers needs underpinned by full BSI accreditation of ISO9001, 14001 and 18001 standards.
By 2018 BTRoS has developed into a strong and reliable manufacturing business with an increasing output and workforce of over 500 staff.
Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires our organisation to develop a slavery and human trafficking statement.
This slavery and human trafficking statement demonstrations what steps BTRoS have taken and aim to take in the future to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our business or supply chains.
BTRoS places the highest importance on respecting human rights and maintains its commitment and ensures respect through various mechanisms.
Our Employee Handbook which includes our code of ethics and business conduct policies addresses ethical conduct in our work environment and business practices. The Code applies at all times, without exception, to all members of BTRoS employees, including management. Our Handbook explains the standards of behaviour that Bombardier expects and identifies guiding principles consistent with the group’s values and reputation. It pinpoints topics such as Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Welfare & Hygiene, Anti Bribery, Behaviour at work, Whistleblowing, Personal Harassment Policies, Equal Opportunities, Equality and other codes of conduct we uphold.
Bombardier considers the respect of human rights to be a fundamental corporate responsibility and a value governing all our activities. We place the highest importance on respecting human rights while conducting our business activities everywhere we operate.
In 2018 BTRoS will continue to uphold the regulations in line with The Modern Slavery Act 2015. We are working towards a stronger communication with our current and new suppliers regarding our business code of ethics. We aim to do this by implementing a supplier code of ethics document to be included within all Supplier induction processes.
This statement has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Company, for the financial year ending December 31, 2017.
