As far as reasonably practicable the COBA International group of companies has carried out due diligence and established that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any of our operations or within our supply chain.
The senior management and procurement personnel throughout the COBA Group take the responsibility of ensuring compliance to a legal, sustainable and ethical supply chain and will not under any circumstance tolerate any form of slavery and human trafficking within its business operations or via any stakeholder.
COBA has established compliance through supplier audits, questionnaires, adherence to recognised quality management systems such as ISO 9001 and compliance to relevant local, national and international law.
Responsible and mature procurement processes are established and the most salient risks for slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain have been evaluated and assessed.
Any known violations or instances of slavery or human trafficking shall be reported by a member of the senior management team to the necessary authorities under UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights Reporting Framework.
