Modern slavery statement

1. Introduction from the Managing Director


1.1. This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that

Hyundai Motor UK Limited (HMUK) has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

1.2. This statement constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31.12.2020. It was approved on 11.12.2019.

1.3. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. HMUK will not tolerate forced labour (including human trafficking) or child labour in our operations. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and intend to put effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

2. Our business


Hyundai has sold vehicles in the UK since 1982 and is a participant of the United Nations Global Compact since 2008. In 2005, Hyundai opened its own UK subsidiary, Hyundai Motor UK Ltd, based in High Wycombe. Hyundai Motor UK employs more than 3,000 people through its UK operations and dealer network.

3. Our supply chains


We are currently working on a supplier code of conduct and intend to put in place and maintain a preferred supplier list. We are developing a due diligence process that is designed to ensure that our suppliers have appropriate practices in place to avoid any form of modern slavery. This due diligence will include an online search to ensure that a particular organisation has not been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery and if we would have concerns that a supplier is involved in any form of modern slavery, on site audits which include a review of working conditions would be carried out.

4. Our policies on slavery and human trafficking


Hyundai’s global Human Rights Policy reflects the company’s commitment to fair treatment of our people around the world. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our upcoming Anti-slavery Policy will reflect our existing commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

5. Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking


As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we are taking steps to put in place very soon systems

to:

(a) Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.

(b) Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.

(c) Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.

6. Supplier adherence to our values
