This Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement covers the activities of Macsteel Global Limited (company registration number 15319788) ("Macsteel Global”) as informed by the UK's Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”), for the period 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022 (FY22).
Macsteel Global is committed to developing appropriate policies, systems and processes to build an effective response over time to the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Macsteel Global was incorporated as a company incorporated in the UK on 2 December 2022. Its registered office is 30 Gresham Street, London, United Kingdom, EC2V 7QP.
It is a holding company of three companies and their subsidiaries.
Macsteel Global's operations involve the provision of business services to group entities.
We recognise that modern slavery may impact our business activities and we will endeavour to take responsibility for reducing the risk that we might contribute to modern slavery and human trafficking through our operations and supply chains (where applicable).
We developed a risk assessment methodology which considers a number of indicators of modern slavery and human trafficking risks including sector and industry, the type of products and services, geographical location and specific entity risk. Our initial risk assessment has indicated that our operations and supply chain overall have a very low potential for modern slavery and human trafficking risks.
Macsteel Global provides management related business services to group entities. Macsteel Global does not have a traditional supply chain at all.
As noted above, we undertook an initial risk assessment to identify any key modern slavery and human trafficking risks that exist within Macsteel Global's operations and supply chains. Where necessary, we will conduct further desktop research to understand our key risk areas. We further prioritised those key risk business and supply relationships, based on where we had the greatest leverage to mitigate the potential modern slavery risks that existed in the relationship.
Macsteel Global expects all suppliers in our supply chain to have no tolerance for modern slavery and human trafficking. The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery and human trafficking in any part of Macsteel Global's business or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us.
Macsteel Global's board of directors has overall responsibility for approving Macsteel Global's annual modern slavery and human trafficking statement and ensuring that the company complies with Macsteel Global's obligations under the UK's Modern Slavery Act 2015.
