Modern Slavery Statement
Leviat welcomes the introduction of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act and supports fully all efforts to combat any abuse of human rights.
The Modern Slavery Act was introduced in 2015 and applies to all businesses that operate in the UK.
Organisations such as Leviat, with an annual turnover of £36m or more, are required to produce an annual slavery and trafficking statement.
Leviat is part of the global building materials group CRH plc that employs approximately 87,000 people at almost 3,800 locations worldwide. We abide by the guiding principles of business set out in the CRH Code of Business Conduct; a copy of this document is available on request.
As a UK operating company and part of CRH plc, we comply with Group policy regarding the Modern Slavery Act.
The full modern slavery statement, available to download below, confirms the steps we are taking to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking does not occur in our organisation and that of our supply chain partners.

Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
