This statement is made on behalf of Deltatre Holdings Limited and its affiliated undertakings, including but not limited to, the Massive Interactive Media Ltd, pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (MSA).
Deltatre is the global leader in OTT and streaming video products, digital and social media applications, as well as content production, data and broadcast services. In November 2018, Deltatre acquired Massive, a multi-award-winning global video streaming software company. Deltatre is now the largest independent OTT solution provider in the world, possessing more than 1000 staff, spread across 19 offices worldwide. The company reaches hundreds of millions of viewers via OTT networks in sports, entertainment, communications, and aviation. Details of the territories in which we do business are available on our website.
This statement has been prepared by us in relation to the MSA and relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory human labour, abuse of power over vulnerable individuals, human trafficking or any other form of exploitation as contemplated by the MSA (Modern Slavery Act) in any part of our business or in our supply chain.
We welcome the transparency encouraged by the MSA and this statement, in conjunction with our group Code of Conduct, sets out for the public, our clients, suppliers and employees, the steps that we are taking in this regard.
We strive for transparent business operations and performance. We adhere to a high set of ethics and values that guide our governance procedures and daily management decisions. We recognize that we must be a profitable business endeavouring to consistently operate above and beyond existing ethical and legal standards. As an organization, we are committed to expanding our operations globally in a sustainable manner for the benefit of our clients, our employees, and the wider communities and environments on which our business impacts. The business takes a pro-active approach to its corporate responsibility, which is deeply rooted in its corporate strategy and business decisions.
For example, at the point of recruitment and where appropriate, checks in accordance with relevant laws are carried out on prospective employees and our HR team works closely both with the relevant teams in the local territories and with local ad hoc legal experts and consultants to make sure that pay and conditions are appropriately managed.
In accordance with our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, we intend to implement effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our group. This will involve ensuring the effective communication and reinforcement of our relevant policies, which give a clear view of the values and principles that underpin all of our work. We require compliance on these policies from all our people and supply chain. As a commitment to this principle, we will introduce in the second half of 2019 a whistleblowing policy to allow people within the business to raise concerns about slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains.
Deltatre creates, processes, and fuses live video, data and graphics on a real-time basis, layering in interactive features and content to transform the sports viewing and fan experience. The scope of our supply chain includes the following activities:
We select our suppliers with care. In order to identify and mitigate the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain we will undertake checks on existing and prospective suppliers on a risk assessed basis. In respect of existing clients, the outcome of these checks will allow us to take appropriate steps to manage any risk of modern slavery. Steps will include reconsidering the continued relationship with any suppliers not meeting the required standards.
