Modern Slavery Statement

Our annual modern slavery statement shows how we’re continuously making sure slavery has no place in our organisation or supply chain. It highlights what we’ve done throughout the year to keep doing business in a sustainable and responsible way.

Modern slavery is the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. Victims are controlled by force, threat, coercion and deception. It can take various forms including trafficking of people, forced labour, sexual or criminal exploitation, or domestic servitude.

At Network Rail we are committed to doing all that we practically can to prevent forms of modern slavery in any part of our business and supply chain. We expect our customers and suppliers to do the same.

Everyone has a responsibility to speak out if they have concerns relating to human rights violations or acts of modern slavery. This includes raising concerns about those we do business with or those who do business on our behalf.
