Modern slavery and human rights violations
We strive to only do business with suppliers who demonstrate ethical business practices and values and we have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery.
While we’ve determined our exposure to modern slavery as low, we’re conscious that some of our direct suppliers may have higher risks of modern slavery. Therefore, we’ve developed processes to ensure that our business and our supply chain is free of modern slavery including the incorporation of contractual frameworks around modern slavery and potential human rights violations in our supplier contracts. These frameworks support our efforts to ensure parties are aware and held accountable to the standards that we uphold.
We’ve also introduced a variety of very important mechanisms to help mitigate the risks including the development of systems that allow for appropriate identification, assessment, and monitoring of potential modern slavery risks. We’ve also developed measures to facilitate the reporting of actual or potential risks by team members or suppliers, in an appropriate, safe and confidential manner.
In the event that any potential or actual incident of modern slavery is identified, we’ll strive to provide appropriate remediation to that incident.
A key component to monitoring and identifying modern slavery risks are our team members, which is why it is important they have a strong understanding of how modern slavery may impact our supply chain and as such, are required to complete comprehensive compliance training. We also expect all our suppliers in our supply chain to have an understanding of modern slavery risks, so where practical, the same education, training and compliance practices are employed with their team members.
Further information on our commitment to ethical business practices and human rights awareness is outlined in the Eclipx Group Limited Modern Slavery Statement, which can be found here.
Privacy and cyber security
We are constantly looking to improve the experience of our customers, our people and our suppliers, and a large part of this is the continuous development of our digital systems. We recognise the extreme importance of ensuring appropriate privacy and cyber security measures are in place, to safeguard our customers and suppliers data.
Measures include the implementation of cloud servers, digital firewall security, physical protections of hardware, Virtual Private Network (VPN) with multi-factor authentication for remote working, and other data security controls which safeguard against the loss of data, file corruption and other risks.
The Tax Transparency Report is an important way for Eclipx to further demonstrate our commitment to transparency and ethical business practices. We have chosen to voluntarily disclose this information, consistent with the Australian Government’s efforts to promote tax transparency.
This report outlines our approach to paying taxes, to tax governance and strategy, and details tax-related payments.
