SUSE® LLC, together with its affiliates, (“SUSE”) is a global software company with 27 years of experience in delivering and supporting enterprise software solutions that help customers innovate faster with lower risk. By applying proven expertise in software and security, we enable customers to utilize new technology solutions while maximizing the value of their investments in critical IT infrastructure and business applications. As a result, they can build, operate and secure the IT systems that bring together existing business logic and applications with emerging technologies—in essence, bridging the old and the new to meet increasingly complex business demands. As a software development company, SUSE does not have an extensive range of local or international suppliers where modern slavery or human trafficking would generally be a material risk and none of our suppliers are key to our businesses success. However, we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place anywhere in our business or supply chains. SUSE engages with our network of suppliers to ensure that they will comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”). As part of this process, we have reviewed our Worldwide Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and have added an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. The SUSE Board has overall responsibility for ensuring the new policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations and that all those under our control comply with it.
