TACKLING MODERN SLAVERY

UK Modern Slavery Act Disclosure Statement 2018 

This Disclosure Statement (“Statement”) has been published pursuant to section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”) and is made on behalf of BrewDog PLC and all subsidiary companies which are in scope for the purposes of the Act (and together are referred to herein as “BrewDog”).

This Statement sets out the steps taken by BrewDog during the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. In accordance with the Act, this Statement is published on www.BrewDog.com.

BrewDog is committed to high standards of ethical conduct and compliance with applicable laws and we fully expect all of our suppliers to conduct themselves in a similarly compliant manner.

BrewDog’s commitment to ethical conduct and compliance with laws includes compliance with laws prohibiting human trafficking and slavery. The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 defines “modern slavery” as including the offences of “slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour” as well as “human trafficking”, all of which are directly opposed to the values and ethics of our company.

Supply Chain

BrewDog’s supply chain is a complex business process that encompasses cross-border flows of material, information and cash. We interact with a variety of suppliers who provide a wide range of products and services for their operations. All of our suppliers must complete a detailed New Vendor Questionnaire followed by appropriate due diligence conducted by our Procurement and Quality Teams; any potential supplier who fails to meet our Procurement Criteria are rejected.

Those suppliers which are approved following the New Vendor process, will typically provide raw materials, energy, logistics, packaging, maintenance and repairs, services and capital goods. The primary raw materials used in beer are hops, malt, yeast and water.

BrewDog expects their suppliers to adhere to the same high standards of ethics and business conduct that we follow, and this is communicated to them during the New Vendor process as well as at regular intervals during any subsequent trading relationship.

Relevant Policies

The BrewDog Code of Ethics applies to every one of our employees worldwide regardless of their role or position in BrewDog.

Human Rights and the Law –

BrewDog actively complies with the employment laws in every country in which we operate. BrewDog does not use child forced labour.

BrewDog does not allow or condone physical punishment or abuse.

BrewDog respects the freedom of individual employees to join, or refrain from joining, legally authorised associations or organisations.

BrewDog fully complies with all applicable laws prohibiting human trafficking.

Due Diligence in the Supply Chain

As set out above, BrewDog only does business with suppliers who are awesome and as part of us selecting who we work with we always make sure that they are fully compliant with all applicable slavery and human trafficking laws in the countries in which they operate; all of which forms part of our New Vendor process.

We have identified that clothing and merchandise suppliers are potentially high risk (due to the nature of clothing manufacture and the risk of unethical business practices within that industry) and any new merchandise supplier must provide independent evidence of their adherence to the applicable laws and regulations. 

Training

BrewDog has an expansive learning & development programme which outlines our expectations in relation to, among other things, anti-corruption, respect in the workplace, and generally making sure that we are compliant with all necessary global regulations.  We strive to ensure that all of our crew hold our values and ethics at their core. 

Crew Members are encouraged to raise legal or ethical concerns though various reporting channels such as their line managers, another member of management, the People Team, or directly with the Board of Directors.

This Statement has been approved by the board of directors of BrewDog PLC and is executed by:
