Modern Slavery Statement

Organisation structure

At Enerveo Limited (formerly SSE Contracting) we have recently undertaken a rebrand after being sold by SSE PLC to Aurelius Group and are currently developing our own policies and procedures that fit with the Enerveo way of working. We currently have around 1500 employees and operate in the electrical and mechanical contracting space within the UK and Ireland. We have previously complied with all of SSE’s modern slavery statements; however, this is now our first under the Enerveo brand name.

Compliance with Modern Slavery act 2015

We are fully committed to ensuring there are no incidences of modern slavery within the business, within our supply chain and with any partners we work with. This is primarily done through two main policies we have in place; our Procurement policy and our Human Right policy.

The main points from the policies which adhere to the modern slavery act are as follows:

Activities undertaken in the last year to address modern slavery

It is Enerveo Limited’s policy to not knowingly conduct business with those engaged with slavery and human trafficking and to cooperate with enforcement bodies in relation to investigations carried out by them in relation to slavery and human trafficking when required to do so.

Our Procurement Policy lays out our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in all forms with our own business and that of our supply chain. It provides for internal and external awareness of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, as well as the standards we expect from our supply chain. Our new supplier onboarding processes clearly identify the need for compliance with the Act as a mandatory part of doing business with us.

We expect our suppliers and contractors to cascade our zero-tolerance approach to include:

Furthermore, internally within in our business, we have implemented a new payroll system this year which completes monthly minimum wage checks to ensure no one falls below this threshold. Further to this, our payroll team undergo external audits which randomly checks a selection of our employees payslips to again ensure compliance. We work with Sterling who conduct ID checks, right to work checks and DBS checks to ensure employees are compliant with UK law and suitable for the role. We have also commitment to the living wage foundation which not only ensures all of our employees are paid the living wage, it ensures our supply chain are also paying their staff and contractors the minimum wage. As part of the commitment, we are obligated to only work with suppliers and contractors who confirm to us they pay the living wage and this is confirmed through the tender/bidding process.

Our HR and our Training and Development team provide mandatory e-learning for all employees to complete on Modern Slavery and the 2015 act every 12 months. Finally, we have a whistleblowing procedure in place to ensure if there are any concerns, these are raised and handled confidentially, anonymously and are fully investigated.

Plan for next year

Our commitment to Modern Slavery will continue to progress over the years and our plan for next year is as follows:

  1. Develop means, deliver measurements, and report performance to our SMT on a monthly basis on the effectiveness and impact of our activities in this area;
  2. Roll out access to the Enerveo MSA 2015 e-learning tool kit to our supplier base;
  3. Increase MSA 2015 awareness training for all members of the Enerveo Procurement team, creating a team of informed professionals equipped to identify and flag areas of concern
  4. Implement our new LMS system with more in depth e-learnings on Modern Slavery
