Modern Slavery Act Disclosure

British Land upholds the human rights of our employees and supply chain.

For more detail on how we manage our supply chain, see our suppliers, and for information about life as a British Land employee, see careers.

To strengthen our commitment to prevent Modern Slavery in the Supply Chain we have joined forces with a leading anti-Modern Slavery charity, Unseen. As part of this partnership we have become a member of the UK’s Modern Slavery Helpline operated by Unseen. This service increases the transparency within our supply chain and give us a better insight into potential exploitative situations happening on the ground.

To further support this new service we will be increasing our ‘supplier work practices audits’ and rolling out an enhanced staff training and awareness campaign.
