This statement, approved by Vix’s Management Board, is issued in accordance with the requirements of Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and identifies the steps Vix AFC Limited and its subsidiary companies (‘Vix’) take to ensure that slavery and human trafficking do not take place within our business or supply chain.

Vix is opposed to slavery, trafficking in persons, and forced labour in any form and expects the same from all of its contractors, suppliers, and other business partners.

Organisation structure and supply chain

Vix is a global provider of automatic fare collection, transit information, and transit analytics solutions for the transport sector, with employees working across the world with hubs in APAC, the UK, Europe, and North America.

Vix uses its supply chain to provide hardware, software, maintenance services, consultancy services, network and communications services, and data centre services, and endeavours to appoint suppliers that we can trust and respect and that provide transparency. Vix requires its suppliers to meet appropriate standards and business practices, comply with applicable laws and regulations wherever they may operate, and adhere to Vix’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Vix has appropriate policies in place that underpin our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy, approach to supplier management, and employee Code of Conduct reflect our commitment 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 are not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

Vix communicates its commitment to tackling modern slavery throughout the onboarding and review of key suppliers and seeks acknowledgement that they have read and understood both our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement and Supplier Code of Conduct. Additional due diligence is carried out as required.

Vix employees are made aware of our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery through employee handbooks, an employee Code of Conduct that is available on our company’s intranet, and training as needed. Vix has systems in place to encourage the reporting of any concerns and provide protection for whistleblowers.
