This Policy is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps we have taken to ensure that our business as well as our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. GreenRoad takes this matter of the upmost importance, ensuring the highest levels of compliance with our business and that of our suppliers.
GreenRoad is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking occurring in any of its activities, as well as seeking to ensure that our supply chains are also free from such practices.
Our organisational structure and operations
GreenRoad is a provider of hardware, software, and Mobile Applications to customers whose businesses involve vehicle operations where there is a requirement to track these assets and to improve safe vehicle operations across the orgnaisaiton.
We employ approximately 100 people worldwide. Operating primarily from Israel, Australia, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. Our customers use our products and services in their vehicle fleets globally.
Nature of our supply chains
Our key supply chains involve electrical hardware manufacturing in the Far East. Sub-assemblies take place in Israel, United Kingdom and the United States of America. Other general businesses used are suppliers for the provision of vehicle installation services, IT services and legal consultants.
Risk assessment and due diligence
GreenRoad have reviewed, and continue to review, the risks that these supply chains can present and will seek to continually review the operations of existing suppliers in relation to the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking. GreenRoad do this by asking our suppliers to complete a supplier questionnaire detailing our corporate social responsibility requirements, to which all suppliers must conform. We always perform due diligence at the start of any business relationship.
We expect our suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to exploitation. To this end, all new contracts, and those renewing, include a clause requiring that our suppliers, and their subcontractors, comply with the Act, and include GreenRoad’s right to terminate in the instance of any breach of this obligation.
As part of our procurement process, we will only engage with suppliers and contractors who confirm their compliance with the Act. This is a start-up obligation, that is cross-checked for conformance. GreenRoad consider our exposure to modern slavery to be limited. We monitor and manage the risk of our supply chain by pre-appraising new vendors and continually monitoring existing vendors. Our number of suppliers remains relatively stable, most relating to long term relationships. We will seek specific assurances from those suppliers carrying the highest exposure to risk.
We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective procedures and controls to minimise the risk of human trafficking and other modern slavery practices infiltrating our business operations or supply chains, and to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business activities and relationships. We expect our employees to fully comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and our associated procedures. Any non-compliance would result in facing disciplinary procedures. No incidents of non-compliance with applicable laws and policies have currently been reported to date.
We provide periodic training to key staff to ensure that they understand the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking infiltrating our business or supply chains and effectively operate our policies and procedures aimed at mitigating this risk.
During 2020 we plan to:
