Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Financial Year Ending December 31, 2022
Headquartered in Dublin with operations in the US, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia, BNRG Renewables Ltd (BNRG) is a pioneering developer and operator of solar photovoltaic projects. BNRG is committed to ensuring that its supply chains and business practices are free from slavery, servitude, forced labour, human trafficking and exploitation. This statement is submitted voluntarily in line with the requirements of section 54 (1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the relevant UK Government Guidance.
BNRG companies are held by BNRG Renewables Ltd, a Limited Company Incorporated in Ireland. Some of these companies are held exclusively by BNRG. Other group companies are partly held by our development partners.
BNRG takes a full project life-cycle approach to every one of our projects. BNRG is involved in all stages of developing solar photovoltaic projects. From the first discussions with the landowner to the day a solar farm begins export ing its clean energy into the grid, we work closely with our partners to shepherd each project through every milestone.
BNRG employs over 30 employees worldwide and adheres to employment law best-practice in all its operative jurisdictions. BNRG also outsources some functions, such as IT, to external service providers.
To support our goat of ensuring that our business is free from slavery, servitude, forced labour, human trafficking and exploitation, BNRG maintains a Speak Up policy and has a clearly defined grievance policy.
BNRG expects suppliers to maintain robust anti-slavery practices. Our purchasing and procurement practices involve screening and due diligence measures in order to mitigate risks of modern slavery in our supply chains.
As an international business, BNRG works with producers and suppliers from around the world. In order to mitigate the risks which this poses we include compliance with labour laws as part of our supplier-selection scoring process.
We are currently working towards implementing the Solar Energy Industries Association “Solar Supply Chain Traceability Protocol 0.1” in order to improve our procurement practices, including our anti-modern-slavery practices. As part of this process, we will be placing greater transparency demands on ourselves and on our suppliers.
This statement was approved by the Board of Directors of BNRG Renewables Limited on 26 January 2022.
