Under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“MSA”), any company carrying on business in the UK which supplies goods or services and which has a total turnover of £36 million or more, is required to publish an annual statement describing the steps it has taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business, or its supply chains.
This annual statement relates to the actions and activities that PPG Industries (UK) Limited, Brown Brothers Distribution Limited and PPG Kansai Automotive Finishes UK LLP have taken during their financial year 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016 (inclusive). This is a combined statement on the basis that PPG Industries (UK) Limited owns the entire issued share capital in Brown Brothers Distribution Limited; and a controlling interest in PPG Kansai Automotive Finishes UK LLP. It is also PPG Industries (UK) Limited’s first statement (for and on behalf of itself and on behalf of Brown Brothers Distribution Limited and PPG Kansai Automotive Finishes UK LLP) published under the MSA.
