Grøn Sky has undertaken actions and is committed to maintaining and improving its systems and processes, to eradicate human trafficking and slavery in its cloud infrastructure supply chain. Grøn Sky requires its cloud infrastructure supply chain suppliers to observe all applicable laws and conduct business in an ethical and responsible manner. Grøn Sky has adopted the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct (formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition Code of Conduct), which prohibits the use of forced, bonded, indentured or involuntary prison labor.
Grøn Sky continues to verify, evaluate, promote awareness about, and address risks associated with forced labor and human trafficking in its cloud infrastructure supply chain. Examples of actions undertaken include the following:
Evaluating and addressing supply chain risks in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
Oracle provides 95% in Grøn Sky’s supply chain. Oracle has incorporated by reference the RBA Code of Conduct into its standard direct hardware supply chain supplier agreements. Oracle also participates in industry efforts to increase awareness of human trafficking and to implement RBA programs, including the Responsible Labor Initiative (RLI).
Auditing suppliers at Oracle
Oracle audits its direct hardware supply chain suppliers based on the RBA Code of Conduct and also reviews the audit results for these suppliers.
Supplier certification at Oracle
Oracle ensures that direct hardware supply chain suppliers certify to the best of their knowledge that the materials they incorporate into products were generated in compliance with applicable anti- slavery and human trafficking laws.
Grøn Sky upholds accountability standards and procedures for employees and cloud infrastructure supply chain suppliers who fail to meet Grøn Sky’s business conduct requirements.
Grøn Sky provides training on human trafficking and slavery issues to employees that directly manage the supply chain.
Investigations and audits
Grøn Sky will perform investigations and audits to verify that business is being conducted in compliance with this Policy. All Grøn Sky employees and third parties through whom Grøn Sky conducts business are required to fully and promptly
cooperate with Grøn Sky’s internal and external auditors and investigators, and must respond fully and truthfully to their questions, requests for information, and documents. Any failure by an employee to completely cooperate, or any action to hinder an investigation or audit, including for example, hiding or destroying any information or documentation, providing false answers or false information, or deleting email or other documents, may be grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including termination, subject to applicable law.
Report any conduct that you believe to be a violation of this Policy, either directly to a member of the Compliance and Ethics Organization, to the Grøn Sky Legal Department, or to Grøn Sky’s CEO.
Any violation of this Policy may be grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including termination, subject to applicable law. Violation of applicable laws may also result in criminal prosecution of responsible individuals
