Modern Slavery Statement

PURPOSE:

  • This statement sets out the steps that {n}.bora has taken and will continue to take to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain in accordance with the UK’s Modern Slavery Act 2015.

  • {n}.bora has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery and human trafficking. In this statement that term includes all forms of slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking.

  • We are committed to acting in an ethical manner, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings. We are committed to creating and maintaining effective systems and controls to safeguard against any form of slavery taking place within the business or our supply chains.

Our Business and Structure

  • {n}.bora is a provider of IT consultancy services and solutions. {n}.bora’s registered office is within the UK. We specialise in Portfolio, Programme and Project Management, Digital Transformation, and IT Services.

Our Supply Chain

  • Our supply chains include contractors, software and IT hardware supplies, professional services and office equipment and facilities.

Risk Analysis

  • We have reviewed our supply chains process and concluded that the services we provide, and the supplies we require to provide those services, are unlikely to involve modern slavery and human trafficking. However, we continue to be mindful of the impact on society of modern slavery and human trafficking and we will continue to take steps to ensure it does not occur within our supply chains.

Our Policies

  • We operate a comprehensive, Code of Business Ethics, throughout {n}.bora as part of our commitment to conducting business honestly, fairly and in an ethical and transparent manner at all times.

  • We are committed to complying with the laws and regulations of the cities, states and countries in which {n}.bora operates. Every employee, worker, contractor, vendor, partner and supplier is expected to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

  • The manner in which our employees, contractors and suppliers conduct themselves is a reflection of our core values, which are more valuable than any service or product we sell – they are the key to our long-term success.

  • Our Code of Business Ethics sets out our position on anti-bribery and anti-corruption, labour and employment laws and conflicts of interest.

  • {n}.bora provides global access to a confidential and anonymous values and whistleblowing policy for the reporting of any violation or suspected violation of the Code of Business Ethics.

Our Actions

  • We have in place systems to conduct due diligence on all our suppliers, partners and vendors before engaging with them, identify and monitor our supply chains, assess potential risks within them, and mitigate any such risks. We will continually seek to implement enhancements in those systems.

  • We are supplementing our existing systems and procedures with additional due diligence steps to ensure the integrity of our supply chains. This has to date included questioning suppliers on their approach to modern slavery and human trafficking issues to allow us to assess their level of understanding of the issues and the steps they are taking in respect of their own supply chains.

  • We already urge our suppliers, vendors and partners to comply with all applicable laws and we specifically require our suppliers, as part of our contracts with them, to confirm to us that they will and are complying with all applicable anti-slavery and human trafficking laws.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • As with our Code of Business Ethics, our Managing Director shall ultimately be responsible for ensuring that {n}.bora takes appropriate steps to comply with all applicable anti-slavery and human trafficking law, while day-to-day compliance will be the responsibility of operational business units, Human Resources, along with any Procurement processes and Sales functions.
