Samsara Networks Inc. on behalf of itself and its direct and indirect subsidiaries from time to time (“Samsara”) is the leader in Industrial Internet of Things (“IoT”). Our mission is to increase the efficiency, safety, and sustainability of the operations that power our economy – from transportation and logistics to construction, food preparation, energy, and manufacturing, as well as many others. Samsara’s portfolio of complete IoT solutions combine hardware, software, and cloud to bring real-time visibility, analytics, and AI to operations.
Samsara supports fundamental human rights as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and core International Labour Organisation Conventions and recognises the duty of States to protect human rights and the responsibility of businesses to respect human rights.
Samsara aims to identify and mitigate the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking occurring within its supply chain or business operations. Samsara has an established set of policies and procedures that govern the way it operates. These are relevant to how Samsara manages potential human rights- related issues with regard to its employees and supply chain, and include:
Code of Conduct;
Employment Screening Program;
Equal Employment Opportunities and Diversity & Inclusion Program;
Whistleblower Program; and
Principles for Suppliers.
Samsara’s financial crime compliance framework, incorporating Anti-Money Laundering and Anti- Bribery and Corruption policies (such as for the FCPA and UK Bribery Act), includes procedures for detecting, mitigating and managing the risks of financial crime. Any proceeds arising from instances of human trafficking would be classified as the proceeds of crime and managed under the compliance framework.
Samsara is committed to maintaining a safe workplace that values equal opportunity and that is free from discrimination, harassment, and victimisation. Samsara operates in a highly regulated environment and has robust policies and procedures concerning employment screening (including work eligibility checks), employment conditions and appropriate workplace behaviour. All staff are expected to abide by the spirit, as well as the strict requirements, of those policies and procedures outlined in the Samsara Code of Conduct.
Samsara’s corporate procurement process involves many suppliers across the globe. The business is primarily office-based with the main supply chain categories comprising technology, premises, financial and other professional services and business travel. Based on sector and supply chain profile, the risk of modern slavery is considered to be relatively limited.
Samsara endeavours to support human rights through the supply chain by encouraging supplier practices that actively identify, assess and manage human rights issues.
In the coming year, Samsara intends to:
Publish a Principles for Suppliers statement which articulates Samsara’s expectations for suppliers; and
Worked with a third party consultant to conduct a human rights risk analysis of Samsara’s global supply chain to identify the supplier categories of greatest potential risk and provide recommendations to assist in identifying and managing these potential risks.
Environmental and social risk training will be provided to staff in key risk functions and business groups. Environmental and social risk and anti-money laundering requirements are also integrated into Samsara’s onboarding process for all employees.
In the coming year, Samsara intends to:
Deliver training to risk managers and specific business groups with potential exposure to environmental and social risks; and
Continued to provide all new employees with face-to-face and/or online training in relation to the Code of Conduct; and
Samsara will review and enhance its approach to addressing modern slavery risks within its supply chain and parts of its business operations by:
Continuing to assess modern slavery risks in Samsara’s supply chain and to rollout the Principles for Suppliers to suppliers via Samsara vendor managers, including a requirement for suppliers to acknowledge the Principles;
Working with key suppliers to review and implement recommendations from the 2017 human rights supply chain risk analysis;
Continuing to assess human rights and modern slavery risks as part of our compliance framework; and
Continuing to train all staff on Samsara’s Code of conduct.
This Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement will be updated at least annually.
