Wagstaff Interiors Group (established 1903) takes its ethical & sustainability policies extremely seriously. We acknowledge our responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency across the group and through our supply chain of goods and services.
As the largest independent commercial furniture dealership in the UK, and throughout our business activities, we recognise the responsibility that we share with our suppliers to buy products, services & raw materials in an ethical manner and to help eradicate modern human slavery and human trafficking within our industry.
The Wagstaff group employs circa 100 people and operates nationally across seven regional offices. Our supply chain is large and diverse and our products are sourced both nationally & internationally. We recognise that our UK suppliers often import components from outside the UK & EC where there is potentially more risk of slavery & human trafficking issues. Where this is the case we ask our suppliers whether they partner with companies who hold social accountability certification SA8000 or are part of the IMO Fair for Life programme.
We want our customers to be assured that our supply chain treats their employees fairly and allows them to work in a healthy & safe environment and are in no way forced or bonded to work under slavery. Our ethical procurement policy outlines our responsibilities, obligations and commitments to purchasing in an ethically responsible way.
Only suppliers who share our standards and values will be accepted as possible suppliers to the Wagstaff Group, our supplier questionnaire has been updated to include questions regarding the origins of materials and components and the methods of transporting these goods. Wagstaff Interior Group will not work with any organisation that has been found to be involved with human trafficking or modern slavery.
This policy statement will be reviewed and updated annually.
The board of directors endorses this policy statement and is fully committed to its implementation.
This policy is communicated to all employees, suppliers and sub-contractors and is made available to the public through our website.
