Our supply chains
Our supply chains consist of global providers of telecommunications networks, services and equipment, office supplies, etc. Our supply chain supports both the delivery of our services to our customers and our daily business operations.
Due to the nature of our business and our corporate governance, we believe that there is a low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our businesses and supply chains.

– Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking that may occur in our supply chains

– Protect whistleblowers
