“We believe in doing the right thing”

Drax Group plc is helping change the way energy is generated, supplied and used for a better future. The Group has more than 2,300 employees and operates an integrated value chain across three principal areas: sustainable wood pellet production; flexible, reliable electricity generation; and energy sales and services provision to business customers.

We are committed to conducting business with honesty, integrity and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. We have clear policies and standards in place to safeguard our employees and contractors. We respect our employees’ rights in areas such as freedom of association and collective bargaining and we do not tolerate forced, compulsory or child labour. We are establishing working practices that enable us to monitor and reduce modern slavery risk within our business and supply chains. Last year, we published our first Modern Slavery Statement as required by the UK Modern Slavery Act.

In this, our fifth Modern Slavery Statement, we outline the progress we’ve made in 2020 and our planned improvements for 2021.

We’re making this Statement for the financial year ending December 2020 and according to the requirements of section 54 part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
