DAS UK Holdings Limited and its subsidiaries (“DAS UK Group”) is committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and supply chain. DAS UK insists that the same standards that it promotes in combatting modern slavery of are similarly adopted and enforced by its suppliers in order to adhere to the obligations and the intent of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”).
DAS UK is an international organisation operating in the legal insurance and legal services markets together with ancillary and complimenting service streams. DAS UK Group is a subsidiary of ERGO Versicherungsgruppe AG which is in turn a wholly owned subsidiary of the Munich Re Group.
DAS UK Group operates predominantly in the UK, however it also trades through branch and subsidiary entities in, Ireland, Canada and Norway. Combined, it employs 750 people with an annual turnover in excess of £200m. To find out more about the nature of our business, please take a moment to read the relevant pages on this website.
In order to deliver our services to business partners, clients and policy holders, we work with a range of suppliers from professional service organisations to suppliers of consumables. Irrespective of the services DAS UK Group receives from a supplier we insist that their obligations in respect of modern slavery and human trafficking must be to the same high standards as our own.
As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we have implemented the following practices:
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted due diligence procedures which include:
Our procedures are designed to:
DAS UK Group regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain as part of its supplier management procedure. Meetings take place on a regular basis, depending on the supplier, the nature of the goods and services as well as any indicator that greater regularity of review is necessary (i.e. where a supplier is sourcing from a location considered higher risk).
We do not consider that we operate in high risk sectors or locations because the majority of suppliers and business partners provide either professional or insurance services, or goods delivered from within the United Kingdom. For the reasons set out in this document, DAS UK Group maintains a procurement process which seeks to ensure that reputable organisations are used in our supply chain, contractually commits suppliers to adhere to the standards DAS UK Group sets itself as well as affording DAS UK Group the right to audit and review the supply chain.
If we find evidence of a failure to comply with our standards in respect of Modern Slavery or a breach of legislation in this area we will immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier. Where there are suspicions of a breach DAS UK Group will take positive action to investigate and either terminate where proven, or work with the supplier to demonstrate with greater certainty that there is no such breach.
We educate our staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our training, employees particularly in parts of the business which manages our supply chain are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of the Act or suspicions of anti-slavery and human trafficking within the DAS UK Group supply chain.
Following our review of our actions this financial year to prevent slavery or human trafficking from occurring in our business or supply chains, we intend to take the following further steps to tackle slavery and human trafficking:
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes DAS UK Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing 1 January 2018 and ending 31 December 2018.
