Modern Slavery Statement

Autorama UK is the UK's most-recognised vehicle leasing brand. Our principal business is brokering the sale of vehicles, finance and insurance to our customers. All of our directly employed staff are based in the UK.

We seek to operate in an open, ethical manner in all our business dealings. We believe that modern slavery is an unacceptable issue. Our policy is to assess and address modern slavery laws within our own business and we expect those organisations with whom we do business to adopt and enforce policies to comply with the legislation.

Our policy on slavery and human trafficking

  • Vanarama is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our business and our supply chains.
  • We seek to uphold the highest standards of honesty and integrity in all our business dealings and relationships.
  • We operate a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery of any kind within our organisation and our supply chain.

Our people

  • Our people are our most highly valued asset and are critical to Vanarama's success and growth. We are proud of ranking in The Times Top 100 Small Companies to Work For.
  • Our Core Values set out guiding principles for members of staff which outlines they should always act lawfully and ethically.
  • All staff undertake mandatory compliance training courses which outline these values further.

Our supply chains

  • We recognise that our business is exposed to greater risk when dealing with suppliers.
  • Our approach to managing this is to identify the level of risk.
  • Our supply chains are predominately funders (finance companies), vehicle dealers and vehicle manufacturers. We consider the sectors in which we operate and our supply chains to be at lower risk of modern slavery.
  • The vast majority of suppliers for our core business are registered and trade in the UK.
  • A review has been completed of our top suppliers, (who themselves are eligible to publish statements) and we have sufficiently concluded that their Modern Slavery Statements meet requirements under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. These statements will be reviewed periodically to ensure compliance.

Actions taken

  • Our Modern-Day Slavery policy is published on our website and our intranet for easy accessibility for all members of staff and customers.
  • Review of our top suppliers in our supply chain completed to ensure compliance with the MSA 2015.
  • Risk Assessments were undertaken to highlight key areas for focus going in to 2018.
  • National Minimum Wage reviews were completed to ensure all employees were paid within legal requirements.
  • Employee induction and training provisions were created, all new members of staff would be aware of our obligations and where to find our statement.

Measuring Effectiveness

In order to assess the effectiveness of the steps we are taking to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place within our business or supply chain we will continue to:

  • Complete internal and supplier risk assessments to highlight key areas for focus
  • Review our supply chain to ensure compliance with the MSA 2015
  • Ensure ongoing training and awareness for new and existing staff
  • Monitor reporting from staff, the public, law enforcement agencies and the media in relation to modern slavery for our business and our supply chain

Board Approval

This statement will be reviewed and updated (if necessary) annually to reflect our ongoing commitment to ensuring that our business and supply chain have made provisions to aid in the prevention of Human Trafficking and Slavery.
