LUPC’s Modern Slavery Statements

Addressing modern slavery risks, as part of our wider responsible procurement strategy, is a topic of huge importance to LUPC; we were the first public body to produce a Modern Slavery Statement.

Our seventh annual statement can be found here. Our aim is to continue to be a leader in this area as we strive to ensure the frameworks we deliver for our members cause no harm to others.

Our Modern Slavery Statement is on the Government modern slavery statement registry which brings together statements in one place, making it easier for consumers, investors, NGOs and others to search for statements and scrutinise the action organisations are taking to identify and address modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chains.
