Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. We also have in place Group Code of business Conduct and Ethics to be followed by Optoma Corporation and its affiliated entities. The code applies to all employees and suppliers.

Our core values are Reliability, Innovation and Customer-focus.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we only use a limited number of suppliers for goods and services. We take into account and risk assess based on the relevant products, components, packaging materials, services, production location and supply chain data. Our suppliers are required to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to those of the UK and other countries in which we/they operate.

When considering a new supplier and reviewing existing suppliers we undertake the following:

  • Reviewing the supply chain broadly to assess particular product or geographical risks of modern slavery and human trafficking;

  • Requiring our suppliers to sign and confirm their compliance with the Optoma Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

  • Invoking sanctions against suppliers that violate our supplier code of conduct, including the termination of the business relationship.

The above measures are intended to:

  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.

  • Protect whistle-blowers.

  • Supplier adherence to our values and ethics

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking we expect the same from our suppliers.

Training

To ensure a level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.

Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking

We require all of our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to those of the UK and the countries in which they operate as well as international business standards.

We also use the following key performance indicators to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chain:

Effective use of our recruitment and selection process;

Communication with our supplies and their understanding and compliance with our expectations.

Further steps

Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains we intend to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking:

  • Further raise staff awareness

  • Require supplier compliance with our Code of Ethics
