Modern slavery statement for financial year ending 31 December 2019
According to the International Labour Organisation, there are some 21 million people worldwide subjected to forced labour. We do not tolerate forced labour either within our business itself or within our supply chain. We expect our supply chain (whether direct service providers or suppliers, or those that directly or indirectly supply them) to share the same values.
Antin Infrastructure Partners is a leading independent private equity firm focused on infrastructure investments. Based in London, New York and Paris, we manage funds that invest in infrastructure in Europe and North America with a focus in the energy and environment, telecommunications, transportation and social sectors.
Our key service providers are professional services firms who provide operational, commercial and financial advice for the review of investments made by our funds. We also have suppliers who provide office equipment and maintenance services, information technology and transport. Given the nature of our business, we consider our potential exposure to modern slavery to be low.
We are committed to ensuring the protection of human rights in our business and operations. We have reviewed our business and our supply chain and neither we nor, to the best of our knowledge, our supply chain make use of forced labour. We have taken the following steps to assess and manage any risk that our supply chain may use forced labour:
- When entering into arrangements with service providers or suppliers, we assess them from a qualitative and economic perspective. As part of that assessment, we are alert for any indicators of forced labour.
- We have in place an internal whistleblowing procedure to ensure there are clear and independent reporting lines available for our staff to raise concerns.
We have prepared this statement for the purposes of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. References in the statement to “forced labour” mean any conduct which is an offence under Part I of that Act including slavery, servitude, any type of forced or compulsory labour and trafficking for the purposes of exploitation.
This statement was approved by the Executive Committee of Antin Infrastructure Partners on 14 May 2020.
