STATEMENT PURSUANT TO MODERN SLAVERY ACT 2015

 

This statement is issued by TITAN Containers A/S (the “Company”), a company incorporated under the laws of Denmark, on behalf of itself and its UK subsidiaries which are required to make a statement (together “TITAN”, “we” or “us”), in compliance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”). 

 

TITAN endorses the principles of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, and is strongly committed to respect human rights and to provide a fair, safe and healthy working environment and we do not tolerate or support practices which in any way contravene these standards. 

 

Regulatory demands upon TITAN vary considerably around the world, so TITAN continuously aims at establishing core principles to ensure full compliance by all TITAN group companies around the world, including compliance with specific local regulations. In this regard, TITAN complies with laws and regulations applicable to all the places where we conduct our business, including those relating to the hiring and retention of our employees, work hours, minimum wages and leave entitlements.

 

OUR BUSINESS


TITAN is one of the largest privately owned companies supplying shipping and storage containers for a vast multitude of applications around the world. While performing our business, we act fairly towards our employees and require them to act fairly in their dealings with fellow employees, customers, suppliers and other business partners and we encourage all of them to take action if they have any concerns about unethical, illegal or improper or suspicious behaviour. We place a high priority on conducting our business in compliance with the law and in accordance with the highest standards of business ethics. 

 

All our employees have written employment agreements and we respect their right to form and join trade unions of their own choosing, to bargain collectively and to engage in peaceful assembly, as well as to refrain from such activities. 

 

Our employees are encouraged to openly communicate and share ideas and concerns with management regarding working conditions and management practices without fear of discrimination, reprisal, intimidation or harassment. However, we believe some employees might be reluctant to go ahead and report irregularities or suspicions of irregularities or wrongdoings and therefore we have created a TITAN whistleblower portal which aims to increase their ability to speak out about illegal, irregular or objectionable facts, or the suspicion of such facts, and to keep their privacy protected by remaining confidential if they so wish. 

 

CODES OF CONDUCT 


TITAN’s Employee Code of Conduct (“Employee Code of Conduct”) and Supplier Code of Conduct (“Supplier Code of Conduct”), available online, sets out our business and ethical requirements, including respecting human rights and core labour principles, that shall govern the activities of our Group and the activities of our employees, suppliers and other business partners across our global operations. Our Codes of Conduct expressly include our commitment to core labour principles and human rights and reinforces our zero-tolerance policy to any sort of modern slavery and human trafficking. 

 

SUPPLY CHAIN


We continuously work on getting our suppliers to adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct and confirm their compliance with high standards of work ethics, including but not limited to national and regional statutory requirements in the country in which they operate, including any applicable laws regarding human trafficking, forced labour and other forms of modern slavery. To have access to the full text of our Supplier Code of Conduct, please follow link above. 

 

Furthermore, our key personnel regularly visit our major suppliers’ production sites, reviewing working conditions and workers’ health and safety. 
 
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement of the Relevant Entities for the year ended 31 December 2019. 

 

Approved by the Board of Directors of TITAN Containers A/S on October 21, 2020.

Environment and sustainability

"We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children"

 

TITAN believes in protecting the environment whenever economically possible and technically feasible.

 

For several years we have reduced our use of non-sustainable rain forests for container floors. Almost all our new rental containers over the past 3 years have been built using Bamboo flooring and where possible we ask for the same floor material in new sales containers. Unfortunately many customers still insist on hardwood plywood floors but we are making progress. 

We are in close contact with paint manufacturers and have already commenced using water based paint systems where we realistically can.

 

The continued use of older containers, those considered no longer suitable by shipping lines and international leasing companies, for storage and export shipping after repair saves the environment from massive CO2 emissions, demands on energy and natural resource reserves.

TITAN started replacing R12 with CFC free refrigerants in 1994 and since 2005 we have introduced new technology refrigerated machinery which have the added advantage of greatly reduced power consumption. Tests completed in 2008 show a power saving of up to 80% with new technology containers and machines when compared to typical used reefer containers. We expect all "old technology" machines to be withdrawn from service in 2008.

 

We believe in the shortest possible transport of empty containers by offering many depot locations. This offers financial benefit to our customers together with environmental savings. 

Thinking "green" with TITAN helps the environment and saves you money!

Community Engagement

It's important to us that we give back

 

At TITAN Containers, we believe that each of us is called upon to make a positive impact in our communities.

 

Our values and company culture, global standards and the opportunity to save people's lives and to make a difference in society are all reasons why TITAN wishes to help and support our community and the people living in it - and it's also the building blocks for TITAN's further development as a company.
