Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, human trafficking, forms of child labour, debt bondage, slavery like practices, forced marriage, and/or deceptive recruiting for labour or services, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

We also engage a number of independent contractors to supplement our workforce and expand our expertise, and work with a range of professional advisors and indirect suppliers providing everything from marketing services to office supplies.
As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we have implemented the following policies:
Ø  PCLs’ Modern Slavery Policy
Ø  Business Ethics Policy

All PCL personnel are required to comply with these policies in all countries where PCL operates. We also make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies, and adhere to the same high standards. Any violation of these standards by an PCL employee can result in disciplinary action, including termination of employment. Any violation by a supplier may result in termination of contract.

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we enforce our policies through supplier contracts and supplier assessments and audits.
Our procedures are designed to:
Ø  establish and assess areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains
Ø  monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains
Ø  reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains
Ø  provide adequate protection for whistleblowers
PCL regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain through various methods, including due diligence, contractual provisions and monitoring political and other environmental influences globally. We seek to limit the number of suppliers we work with, and look to work with suppliers with proven track records and high internal standards. We assess factors such as country and sector risk profiles, external reports and standards, publicly available risk assessment ratings, membership of organizations where codes of conduct form part of the membership criteria, supplier self-assessment findings, and third party or PCL audit results.
We ensure all our suppliers adhere to our modern slavery and business ethics policies. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. For example, if we find evidence of a failure to comply with our policies, we will immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier.
We strongly encourage our personnel to raise concerns to management, human resources, legal or anonymously, and make it clear they can do so without fear of reprisals or retaliation. 
PCL recognizes that its review and assessment of its actions to identify and address modern slavery risks in its operations and across its supply chain will be an ongoing and evolving process. PCL will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the process and procedures and will continually assess the effectiveness of its actions by tracking outcomes, partnering with suppliers, and undertaking regularly internal governance and external assurance processes. PCL is committed to drive continuous improvement of its existing policies.
We invest in educating our staff to recognize the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our training programmes, employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy. Employees are taught the benefits of stringent measures to tackle slavery and human trafficking, as well as the consequences of failing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our business and supply chains.
Given the nature of our business and supply chains, and the risk assessments we have undertaken to date, we believe the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain is low, however we are not complacent and PCL remains committed to its responsibility to respect human rights across all operations. We are committed to driving continuous improvement within our organization and supply chain and are ready to evolve in response to changing political and environmental circumstances and the evolution of our business.
