Our Supply Chain

RGB uses a wide range of suppliers who supply goods and services to support our operations.

Having reviewed our business operations and relationships, we believe that the greatest area of modern slavery risk is in the supply chain supporting the procurement of goods and materials for our residential and commercial sectors.

We will only purchase from suppliers who ensure that there is no modern slavery in their own business and supply chain.

We also consider that there is risk of modern slavery issues arising in the sub-contractors that we employ. This risk is the lesser of the risks identified.

Due Diligence

RGB carries out comprehensive due diligence on suppliers in high-risk areas and has developed very clear and robust procedures for assessing and auditing those suppliers. This ensures that we only select suppliers who comply with our high standards and policies.

The following is in place to help identify and mitigate risk.

All suppliers will:

  • Complete a Modern Slavery Act Due Diligence questionnaire which covers their governance, policies, training and supply chains management processes;
  • Provide a full and complete list of all sites from where they are proposing to commission goods on behalf of RGB on an annual basis.

All sub-contractors will:

  • Be vetted and expected to adhere to RGB standards

All suppliers must then provide an annual Independent Ethical Audit to ensure ethical standards and full transparency are maintained.

RGB has an internal team responsible for assessing information and documentation submitted by suppliers. Should a supplier fail or refuse to provide the information required or meet RGB’s expectations, this may result in RGB not entering into a relationship with them or terminating any current relationship.
