This statement is made on behalf of Deltatre Group Limited and its affiliated undertakings (“Deltatre”), 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 and 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 labor, abuse of power over vulnerable individuals, human trafficking or any other form of exploitation as contemplated by the MSA 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.
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 endeavoring 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.
In accordance with our constant commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, we have implemented effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our group. During 2019, we reinforced and gave effective communication of our relevant policies and we introduced a whistleblowing policy to allow people within the business to raise concerns about slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains.
We require compliance on these policies from all our people and supply chain.
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 expect all of our suppliers and service providers to meet legal and ethical standards as a condition of doing business with us.
We select our suppliers with care. As part of our supplier management process, in order to identify and mitigate the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain, we undertake preliminary checks on existing and prospective suppliers on a risk assessed basis.
Moreover, during 2020, we will conduct auditing against existing clients. The outcome of these checks will allow us to take appropriate steps to manage any risk of modern slavery. Steps will include both identifying areas for improvement and reconsidering the relationship with any suppliers not meeting the required standards.
