V4 is a UK based wholesale supplier of quality and ethically sourced wood flooring and associated products.
Headquartered in Woking, Surrey, we’re a dedicated team providing wood flooring to flooring specialists across the UK and into Europe.
Modern Slavery Statement
Although our turnover is currently below the statutory requirement for a public modern slavery statement, we feel that it is important to demonstrate our commitment towards ensuring that modern slavery does not take place within our organisation or amongst any of our global supply chain.
To this end, we are committed to upholding laws such as the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (UK), the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Australia) and other similar worldwide legislations which aim to combat modern slavery and human trafficking.
V4’s Commitment to Abolish Modern Slavery
V4 has a zero-tolerance policy towards modern slavery, including human trafficking and forced labour. We have the following processes in place to solidify our commitment to ending Modern Slavery:
- We provide regular training to our personnel on all of our policies, including our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy.
- We monitor and review the risks of Modern Slavery in our operations and supply chains on an annual basis.
Our Supply Chain
We rely on a global supply chain for the products which we retail. Within this exists the greatest risk with respect to modern slavery. As stated above, all of our suppliers and manufacturers are also required to certify that they do not, have not and will not engage in Modern Slavery and we rely on them to self-audit or monitor their own supply chains on an ongoing basis.
V4 Wood Flooring’s Modern Slavery Risks and Steps Taken to Address Those Risks
We consider our modern slavery risk to be generally low, particularly because the nature of our supply chains, and the values and to which our employees, contractors, consultants and suppliers are required to adhere to; however, should V4 become aware of any issues related to slavery or human trafficking, we will consult with our legal team to ensure that appropriate measures are taken, which may include reporting this information to authorities and terminating our relationship with any supplier conducting its business in such a manner.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the 2023 financial year.
