Corporate Governance

Corporate Social Responsibility

The culture within ECAS is to strongly believe that acting responsibly and contributing positively to the communities we operate in is the cornerstone of our company.

This involves working closely with our employees, their families and the local community.

Our CSR policies have four key areas of focus within how we see ourselves serving the needs of the communities we work with; these are –

Modern Day Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

ECAS publishes this Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the 2017/18 financial year which ended on 31 March 2018 pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

ECAS is an industry leading provider of water and waste monitoring, air monitoring, environmental advisory and environmental training solutions for Commercial and Utility Clients. We provide services that contribute to the protection, enhancement and maintenance of the natural environment.

We acknowledge the problem of modern day slavery is an unacceptable crime affecting millions of adults and children across the world including the UK and occurs in activities such as sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude and organ harvesting.

As a professional consultancy, ECAS is committed to upholding human rights by embedding appropriate values and policies to guide our people and influence behaviour about the way we work. We believe in working in an ethical and sustainable way which extends to the relationships we have with our customers, our employees, our suppliers and the communities in which we conduct our business.

Our statement is supported by an integrated management system certified to ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 as well as our codes of conduct and associated policies. This includes embedding the principles of this statement into our recruitment process and all other human resource management practices and procurement activities and managing the supply chain. Our people are made aware of the impact of modern day slavery and human trafficking and we encourage them to report concerns to management where we expect them to act upon them. We monitor the use of labour through payroll and attendance systems and reporting on same.

We have assessed the risk of becoming associated or involved with modern day slavery or human trafficking through our supply chain. The risk of modern day slavery and human trafficking is relatively small and therefore rated as being low. Despite the low level of risk, ECAS upholds zero tolerance for this kind of activity in our supply chain and we expect our suppliers to comply with this principle too.

The publishing and continual review of our performance to preventing modern day slavery and human trafficking is demonstrative of our commitment to this cause.
