Vestel UK Limited

Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement - 2019-2020


Modern slavery and human trafficking are completely unacceptable in a modern society and businesses can play a crucial role in tackling this. Vestel UK Limited takes this very seriously, is fully committed to ensuring that its business and supply chain are free from slavery and human trafficking and takes a zero-tolerance approach.

Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 ("MSA") places a legal requirement on large businesses such as Vestel UK Limited to publish an annual statement of the steps that the organisation has taken during the previous financial year to ensure that modern slavery (including human trafficking) is not taking place in its business or supply chain. This statement is made pursuant to the MSA for the financial years ending 31 December 2019 and 31 December 2020 where we have taken steps to identify and reduce the risks of slavery and human trafficking taking place in our supply chain and business.


2.1 Our organisation

Vestel UK Limited is a reseller of electrical goods, including televisions, domestic appliances (such as refrigerators and washing machines), cooking appliances, professional displays and electric vehicle chargers, in the durable consumer and business to business goods sectors. It operates from one main location, Vestel House, 1 Waterside Drive, Langley, Berkshire, England SL3 6EZ and has an annual worldwide turnover of over £280,000,000 (FY 2020).

2.2 Our Parent Company

Vestel UK Limited is part of the Vestel Group of Companies (the "Group") and our parent company is Vestel Ticaret A.S., which has its head office in Turkey. The Group has over 16,000 employees worldwide; its international sales and marketing organisation comprises 11 local sales offices, of which 10 are located in Europe, generating a worldwide turnover of $3,028,000,000 in 2019 and exporting to 156 countries. We procure all the goods we sell from our parent company. Zorlu Holding is the parent company of Vestel Group of Companies.


The Group is aware that the underlying factors for sustainable success heavily depend on highly motivated and happy employees who have the skills to utilise in pursuit of a common goal. The Group continually reinforces its existing workforce by investing in qualified human resource. The Group is aware that a qualified workforce is the most important factor for providing quality customer service in addition to maintaining and improving its technological superiority and leadership in design. Accordingly, the Group manages its human resources through detailed procedures which include all legal and regulatory requirements, including the Modern Slavery Act.

The Human Resources Policy is available in the Corporate Governance / Human Resources Policy section. The following statement is specifically mentioned in all regulations: “No discrimination is permitted in applications on the basis of gender, age, religion, race, sect, social status, physical appearance, ethnic origin, nationality, sexual orientation or any other personal characteristics.”

In recruitment practices, equal opportunity is provided to all individuals and a fair and unbiased evaluation is taken as a basis. In line with the sustainability goals for 2022 set out by Zorlu Holding, which covers all the Zorlu Group companies, projects have been initiated providing equal opportunities to employees in recruitment, promotion and support practices.

The Group Human Resources team continue to receive recognition at international human resources organisations and won the Silver Award at Brandon Hall Human Resources Excellence Awards.

Within the scope of its 2019 program, Vestel Technology Academy continued to provide post-graduate level training. The Vestel Technology Academy won the Golden Award in the competition organized by TEGEP in Turkey in 2018. In the international arena, the Academy won the Bronze Award in the category of “Human Resources Team of the Year” at the Stevie International Business Awards.

Occupational Health and Safety Policies and Practices

Vestel is highly sensitive about occupational health and safety for the work environment, attaching priority on the assessment and management of the potential impact of risks in the workplace to personnel, subcontractors, visitors, solution partners and other employees.

Work to establish the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System is continuing. The certification process is planned to be completed in 2020.

Vestel continually trains its personnel to ensure that they adopt the right behavioural patterns with respect to quality, environmental awareness, energy efficiency, information security and potential health and safety risks. The framework of Vestel’s Occupational Health and Safety Policies comprises the following:

  • To create a “Safety Culture” throughout the Company and ensure that it is adopted,
  • To protect from dangerous and health-hazardous conditions that may occur during activities and to create a healthier work environment by conducting up-to-date risk analyses based on the policy of “preventing before it happens”,
  • To ensure occupational health and safety together with employees by asking for their feedback through constant training and platforms which support employee engagement,
  • To consider occupational health and safety as an indispensable priority for all employees and as an inseparable part of their work,
  • To create a safe working environment by fully preventing or minimizing fire risk and accidents in operations,
  • To eliminate or minimize unsafe situations and unsafe acts in the workplace by conducting risk analyses and by implementing preventive plans in line with the principle of “The right work for the right employee”.

In line with the Company’s Occupational Health and Safety Policy, all necessary work is carried out to achieve the target of zero accident and occupational illness. Furthermore, compulsory training programmes on occupational health and safety are provided to all Zorlu Holding employees in accordance with all relevant regulations.


Zorlu Holding considers the compliance of all suppliers with environmental, social and ethical standards and principles as critical. e-training on ethical principles was set up on the Zorlu Academy online training platform in order to ensure that Zorlu Holding’s Code of Ethics, which was prepared in 2018 to cover all the Group companies within Zorlu Holding, are adopted by all employees, including Vestel Group employees. The training aims to increase employees’ awareness of Zorlu Holding’s Code of Ethics and to guide how to instil a way of working in line with these principles. The Code of Ethics training was prepared within the scope of the Corporate Governance Working Group activities carried out under the umbrella of Smart Life 2030, under the coordination of the Audit General Directorate and the Human Resources Group Presidency. The online training platform was rolled out in Zorlu Holding in March 2019 and was implemented within the Vestel Group of Companies in July 2019 with the Code of Ethics training provided to all employees through the online system.

Vestel is a signatory of the “Zorlu Holding Supplier Code of Conduct”, comprising supply principles with its suppliers, prepared as part of the group sustainability efforts. With these principles, the company’s suppliers agree to comply with the conditions set out under the main headings such as Discrimination Prevention, Humanitarian Treatment, Remuneration, Working Hours, Occupational Health and Safety, the Environment and Ethics. Regular audits for compliance of these principles are conducted with the biggest suppliers.



Vestel manages its sustainability strategy with targets in line with the “Smart Life 2030” sustainability policy adopted by Zorlu Holding and Zorlu Group companies, which is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

Smart Life 2030 aims to provide concrete long-term and measurable solutions to global economic, environmental and social problems. The Company places sustainability at the heart of its growth and common value creation process, in line with its business strategy, which is focused on technology and the development of innovative solutions, taking care of all stakeholders within the sphere of influence of Zorlu Group.

Within the framework of Zorlu Group’s Smart Life 2030 sustainability approach, key focus areas in the field of sustainability were identified in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations to eliminate poverty, protect the world and ensure that all people live in peace and prosperity, and efforts are carried out to achieve these goals. Within this framework, “a zero-injury severity rate” is one of the five main indicators.

Zorlu Holding is a member of the UNGC (United Nations Global Compact). Vestel Group companies have also applied to become members of UNGC. All Group companies are committed to comply with all ten principles listed on the UNGC website, of which the first two are directly linked to human rights.


Two Vestel Group companies listed on the Istanbul Stock Exchange (BIST) are included in the BIST Sustainability Index since 2015, placing sustainability firmly across their entire business model, from the use of technology to management strategies. Having been listed in the BIST Sustainability Index for four years, Vestel companies are qualified for inclusion in the index for a fifth year with effect from November 1, 2019, thanks to continued compliance with the index criteria.

The “Viva!” Project, which first emerged as an employer branding project, was approved as a sustainability project in 2019. The project focuses primarily on “Corporate Good Life (Well-being),” which is a priority among sustainability goals, and aims at ensuring the sustainability of both the quality of life of the employees and corporate longevity. The Viva! project is planned to be implemented throughout Vestel in 2020.

The Group’s Code of Ethics can be accessed at the following website:


2.3 Our Supply Chains

Vestel UK Limited understands the importance of transparency in its supply chain and endeavours to ensure that its suppliers do not engage in any abusive, exploitative or illegal activities. We expect all of our suppliers to be fully committed to our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking.

Our parent company, Vestel Ticaret A.S., supplies us with the goods we sell, the large majority of which are manufactured by Vestel Ticaret A.S. in Turkey, the remainder being imported on our behalf by Vestel Ticaret A.S. from Thailand and China. In total, we procure goods and services from around 350 suppliers based in 18 countries. The goods and services we procure include those relating to advertising, marketing, translation, website hosting, legal, professional, audit, consultancy, distribution, packaging, repairs, cleaning, site maintenance, security, catering and others.

We also outsource services including our payroll, office cleaning, after sales call centres and repair facilities to a handful of providers in the UK and EU countries.

We store and distribute our goods through third-party warehouses. A forwarding company based in the UK arranges on our behalf customs clearance and goods despatch.

2.4 Our Employees

All Vestel UK Limited’s employees are subject to our Code of Conduct which details our relevant policies. In particularly, our recruitment policy reflects the zero-tolerance approach that we have towards modern slavery, with similar dedication expected from our recruitment partners too.

Vestel UK Limited forbids abuse and discrimination in its workforce and ensures that we comply with all applicable laws and regulations. We conduct relevant checks at each recruitment stage to prevent slavery and human trafficking. We ensure that universal employment principles, such as equal opportunity to all employees, regardless of their nationality, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or physical disabilities, are fully respected.


As part of Vestel UK Limited's commitment to ensuring that our business and supply chain are slavery-free, we are implementing a Modern Slavery Policy and a Supplier Code of Conduct. Everyone who works for Vestel UK Limited will be obliged to comply with the Modern Slavery Policy. All our first-tier suppliers will be required to accept contractual obligations to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct and to oblige suppliers who supply them with goods/services to do so as well.


As part of our initiative to identify and address risks of slavery in our supply chain we:

  • Review relationships with our suppliers periodically.
  • Only engage workers from reputable employment agencies and professional bodies and always undertake identification and other checks (passport, eligibility to work and former employment reference checks) before accepting a worker.
  • Visit Vestel Group manufacturing facilities with our customers periodically for general inspection and audit.
