Organisation
This statement applies to Seed Environmental Ltd (referred to in this statement as ‘the Organisation’).

Organisational structure
Seed Environmental has premises based in the following locations:

Newmarket, Suffolk

Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire
Donacaster, South Yorkshire

The main activity carried out by the Organisation is Environmental remediation/construction works.

The labour supplied to the Organisation in pursuance of its operation is carried out wholly in the United Kingdom.

Definitions
The Organisation considers that modern slavery encompasses:

• human trafficking
• forced work, through mental or physical threat
• being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse of the threat of abuse
• being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property
• being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement.

Commitment
The Organisation acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery and commits to complying with the provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The Organisation understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally, its supply chains.

The Organisation does not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.

No labour provided to the Organisation in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking.

Potential exposure
In general, the Organisation considers its exposure to slavery/human trafficking to be relatively limited.
