Service providers that are engaged are either the customer’s existing suppliers or local, well-established large companies with an excellent reputation.

4. DUE DILIGENCE
ZetaDisplay Norway is committed to preserving human rights. For 2022, ZetaDisplay Norway evaluated its most important suppliers together representing over 90% of its annual spend. We identified that these suppliers are from Norway, Netherlands, Finland, UK and China. As part of initial due diligence process, we have adopted jurisdictional analysis basis global slavery index. This helped us identify any potential risks we may have from our major suppliers.
We have conducted a due diligence of our top suppliers basis their materiality and found that 95% of our suppliers are from the countries with good score for human rights compliance index viz. Norway, Finland, Netherlands and UK.
For the one supplier that is not from the country with good score, we will continue to monitor their compliance. This is the only potential adverse impact we have identified for the reporting period.
- RISK MITIGATION –
In general, our suppliers have committed to adhere to and implement the same principles of responsible business as we do. To this effect, we have also asked these major suppliers to sign an undertaking to conform with global standards of responsible business.
If we find any gaps in their compliance on an ongoing basis, we will conduct further due diligence and rectify the gaps by guiding them towards compliance or changing them basis the materiality of the risk involved. If a breach to Zeta Display’s Group Code of Conduct is discovered, the first course of action is engagement with the supplier and if that proves to be unsuccessful, the collaboration is terminated.
