Union Maritime Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain, and expects those same high standards from our contractors, suppliers, and other business partners.
Union Maritime Limited is a UK based ship owner and operator. We pride ourselves on ensuring efficient and safe movement of liquid cargoes on behalf of our clients. We aim to be the owner of choice for the trading community, ensuring safety and certainty.
Union Maritime Limited has a number of subsidiary companies whose activities form part of its supply chain or business as well as branch offices in a number of countries.
As such, Union Maritime Limited works with a wide range of different counterparties, subcontractors, and partners, each of which will have their own subcontractors, affiliates and associate entities. Therefore, Union Maritime Limited is connected to multiple entities through numerous contractual relationships across many countries.
Due Diligence Process
- We operate diligence, procurement and contracting processes designed to ensure that, wherever possible, suppliers comply with applicable laws and standards, including those which relate to slavery and the Modern Slavery Act.
- We expect our suppliers to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes in place within their own businesses and to cascade those policies to their own suppliers.
- We endeavour to include appropriate terms in our contractual documentation, obliging suppliers and contractors to comply with the Modern Slavery Act or equivalent rules.
- We encourage staff to identify and report any potential breaches of Union Maritime Limited’s anti-slavery policy statement. Whistle blowers are also protected through a confidential reporting process.
The above procedures are designed to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains;
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains;
- Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains; and
- Provide adequate protection for whistle blowers.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Union Maritime’s anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2023.
