Modern Slavery Policy
Big Bus Tours Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Slavery and human trafficking remain an unacceptable part of our global society. We must all play our part, large or small, to ensure this is eradicated in a day and age where it should not exist beyond the pages of the history books.
Big Bus Tours Limited is the largest global operator of open top sightseeing buses cities across 4 continents, with a head office based in London and currently employing over 600 staff across all cities. Each of the operating companies are wholly owned subsidiaries, working under the same operating banner of Big Bus Tours, collectively used to carry 5 million customers annually pre COVID-19 pandemic.
During the pandemic, the Company adopted government guidelines for COVID-19 to prevent the spread of the virus and support employees throughout a difficult period and also relaunched its whistleblowing hotline to ensure that we offer a safe channel to speak up about workplace concerns.
Our supply chains consist mainly of vehicle manufacturers, sightseeing supplies manufacturers and engineering component manufacturers, and 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.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we work to secure all purchases through reputable large mainstream manufacturers, with long standing relationships with businesses that have the same ethical outlook as ourselves, and that confirm that they adhere to our policies on slavery and human trafficking.
We undertake all reasonable and practical steps, including supplier visits, to ensure our standards are being adhered to throughout the supply chain, as we will only trade with those who fully comply with stated Slavery and Human Trafficking policies.
This statement has been approved by the Board of Directors, who will review and update it as necessary on an annual basis. Updated April 2021
