Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust plc is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethical behaviour and expects the same of its business partners. The use of slavery and human trafficking is unacceptable and entirely incompatible with its ethics as a business. Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust plc believes that all efforts should be made to eliminate it from its supply chains.
The majority of services supplied to or on behalf of Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust plc are from the financial services, energy and construction industries and other services associated with those industries. Given what Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust plc understands to be a low risk profile of anyone supplying it with services being involved in slavery and/or human trafficking, Chairman Philip Austin believes its current procedures and ability to rely on regulatory oversight in relation to professional services are sufficient in this regard.
