Westpile is also part of the VINCI Group of companies, one of the largest global built environment organisations.

All group companies share a mutual code of ethics and conduct, the code is delivered by the Director and  Chief  Executive  Officer  of  the  VINCI  Group.  Principles  of  the  code  of  ethics  and  conduct  are  reflected within our vision of developing our modern slavery statement.

Westpile takes its responsibility to avoid and mitigate any modern slavery in its operations extremely seriously. To that end we have developed a detailed policy and strategy that runs over 3 years to support this statement. Our approach to modern slavery shall be governed by our main board, who shall  provide  leadership  from  the  top  down,  continually  striving  for  best  practice  and  leading  by  example. Our modern slavery policy will be communicated to our supply chain, embedded into our procurement policy and will become a part of the way we work.
