We recognise the importance of regulation in our market and support all regulatory efforts aimed at enhancing the transparency and accountability framework against which businesses must be evaluated.
The LME and LME Clear are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Under UK legislation, companies with more than 250 employees are required to report on gender pay information. For the past two years, the LME did not fall within this category, but nonetheless chose to publish its gender pay report in line with its wider commitment to gender equality and inclusion. This year, with over 250 employees, we are obliged to publish, and pleased to do so, as the LME believes that the transparency created through gender pay gap reporting is a critical tool in understanding, managing and addressing perpetuating gender equality issues.
