The Millennium Hotels and Resorts team understands that our customers, investors, employees and suppliers actively choose their relationships with the Group. Increasingly, this choice depends on the degree to which we demonstrate corporate social responsibility: behaving ethically and legally, treating our employees with respect and consideration, finding ways to minimise our impact on the environment and doing what we can to improve the lives of those in the wider community around us.
Aside from its social contribution as a profitable, taxpaying enterprise, the Board recognises that delivering good, long-term returns to shareholders requires it to demonstrate commitment to corporate social responsibility. To this end, the Group has adopted – and reviews regularly – a number of policies, collectively referred to as Responsible Hospitality.
As part of Responsible Hospitality, the Group is committed to upholding human rights and helping to prevent slavery and human trafficking. In line with the enactment of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015, please see our current slavery and human trafficking statement below.
The Board understands the need to communicate to stakeholders its progress on executing these policies. See the full statement of the Group's corporate responsibility programme.
