Modern Slavery Statement

Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is designed to satisfy the requirements of Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”), by setting out the approach of Mobicia Limited to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour and labour rights violations in its supply chains.

At Mobicia Limited, we have a zero-tolerance policy toward any form of modern slavery, including forced or compulsory labor, human trafficking, and the exploitation of children. We are committed to ensuring that our operations and supply chain are free from such abhorrent practices. Here are the steps we are taking to prevent and mitigate the risks of modern slavery:

Robust Policies and Procedures:

We have implemented a comprehensive Modern Slavery Policy that outlines our commitment to upholding human rights and condemning all forms of modern slavery.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct sets clear expectations for our suppliers and business partners to comply with applicable laws and regulations, including those related to modern slavery and labour practices.

Our Employee Code of Conduct reinforces our commitment to ethical business practices and prohibits any involvement in modern slavery or human trafficking.

Due Diligence and Risk Assessment:

We conduct regular risk assessments to identify potential areas of risk for modern slavery within our operations and supply chain, considering factors such as geographic locations, industry sectors, and labour practices.

We perform enhanced due diligence on high-risk suppliers and business partners, including on-site audits and inspections, to assess their compliance with our policies and applicable laws.

Training and Awareness:

We provide comprehensive training programs to educate our employees, managers, and suppliers on identifying and mitigating the risks of modern slavery.

Our training covers topics such as recognizing signs of forced labour, human trafficking, and child exploitation, as well as reporting mechanisms and whistleblower protection.

Supply Chain Management:

We have implemented a supplier onboarding process that includes screening for modern slavery risks and compliance with our policies and legal requirements.

We require our suppliers to complete self-assessment questionnaires and provide evidence of their efforts to combat modern slavery.

We conduct regular audits and inspections of our suppliers to ensure their ongoing compliance with our policies and legal requirements.

Grievance Mechanisms and Whistleblower Protection:

We have established robust grievance mechanisms and reporting channels for employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report suspected cases of modern slavery or other unethical practices confidentially and without fear of retaliation.

We investigate all reported concerns thoroughly and take appropriate corrective actions, including terminating business relationships with non-compliant suppliers or partners.

Collaboration and Partnerships:

We actively collaborate with industry associations, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders to share best practices, participate in initiatives, and support efforts to combat modern slavery globally.

We engage with local communities and organizations to raise awareness and promote ethical labour practices in the regions where we operate.

Monitoring and Continuous Improvement:

We regularly monitor our policies, procedures, and practices to ensure their effectiveness in preventing and addressing modern slavery risks.

We conduct periodic reviews and audits to identify areas for improvement and implement corrective actions as necessary.

We encourage open dialogue and feedback from our employees, suppliers, and stakeholders to enhance our efforts continuously.

At Mobicia Limited, we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards and promoting human rights throughout our operations and supply chain. We will continue to take proactive measures to ensure that our business activities do not contribute to or enable any form of modern slavery or human exploitation.
