This is Air Conditioning  Centre’s first statement on anti-slavery and human trafficking following the introduction of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. As sole UK Importers and European Distributors of our leading edge Air Conditioning Systems¸ we are proud to provide our Resellers and Customers these exclusive high end products.

In these times of Global Warming it is our Mission to make our Air Conditioning products affordable to all by offering a simple Easy Fit¸ out-of-the-box solution¸ and cost effective professional installation options too.

Air Conditioning Centre endeavours to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our employed workforce or any of our supply chain. Although we believe that our exposure to the risks of modern slavery is relatively low, we are not complacent. We understand that, if we are to be successful in delivering our strategy for growth, then we must make sure that we interact with our employees, customers and others properly. Our Staff Handbook sets out our commitment to the value and importance that we place on honest, ethical and lawful conduct in all our business dealings.

Consistent with the principles set out in our Staff Handbook, we prohibit forced labour, child labour and discrimination within our supply chain. We ensure, as it is reasonably practicable, that our suppliers, where necessary, have controls in place to uphold our commitment to doing what we can to combat slavery and human trafficking.

To ensure our employees are not subject to undue influence and are treated with dignity and respect, Air Conditioning Centre has human resource policies and procedures in place across all its operations. These are audited to ensure compliance with employment legislation and prevent unethical working practices. Air Conditioning Centre is committed to ensuring that all staff receive fair remuneration for the job they perform and undertakes regular reviews of terms and conditions across the workplace. Air Conditioning Centre adheres to the payment of the National Living Wage in the UK and all compulsory minimum wage premium as set by governments. Air Conditioning Centre also has recruitment processes, which includes verifying the identity of each employee and their right to work in each country before commencing employment. All temporary workers are supplied through reputable recruitment agencies. Air conditioning Centre’s Whistleblowing policy is designed to make it easy for employees to make disclosures without fear of retaliation.
