The Modern Slavery Act Disclosure Statement

The Modern Slavery Act requires a commercial organisation  over a certain size to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement each financial year. The statement should disclose the steps the organisation has taken to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains or its own business.

Overarching Statement

NIRAS Lorien Engineering Solutions strive to act ethically and with integrity in all of our business dealings to protect the human rights of workers, both within our business and supply chains. The organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Supply Chain

The majority of our suppliers are UK based or global training providers, global suppliers of IT equipment and infrastructure, and UK based indirect consumable suppliers. As such we have no reason to believe that there is slavery or any human trafficking in our supply chains.

Key Performance Indicators

NIRAS Lorien Engineering Solutions UK Ltd is a UK based consultancy provider with no operations outside the UK and low purchase of materials, thus we consider the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain as very low and do not measure related performance indicators.


NIRAS Lorien Engineering Solutions respects the human rights of its employees and is committed to a work environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, and in accordance with employment laws. The Company has a number of HR policies and internal procedures in place to protect the human rights of its employees, including an anti-bribery policy and a whistle blowing policy.

Risk and Compliance

NIRAS Lorien Engineering Solutions regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery or human trafficking occurring in its supply chain. Where we identify a potential risk we will take steps to remediate it through legitimate and proportionate processes. The Company will continue to monitor modern slavery risks within our business and supply chain.
Responsibility for NIRAS Lorien Engineering Solutions anti-slavery and human trafficking initiatives lies with its Board of Directors.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2020.
