(Last Updated 15.09.23)

Modulary Factory and its associates (collectively, “Modulary Factory” or “we”) are committed to respecting and promoting internationally recognized human rights principles throughout our enterprise. Such principles inform this policy, but the statements contained herein and standards established hereby are unique to Modulary Factory.

 

Statement on Human Rights

While governments serve a principal role in protecting human rights internationally, Modulary Factory believes that we should respect and promote human rights in our sphere of influence. Modulary Factory recognizes that we have the opportunity to make positive and lasting contributions in the communities in which we operate through both economic and social development. As such, Modulary Factory is committed to promoting and protecting recognized human rights in our local communities.

Consistent with that commitment, Modulary Factory supports the below principles and statements.

  • Modulary Factory does not condone or permit human trafficking, the use of child, forced, indentured or involuntary labor in any of our operations or our suppliers’ operations.
  • We conduct business with care for the environment and for the health and safety of each other, our suppliers, our customers and the people in the communities where we operate.
  • Modulary Factory does not tolerate any form of discrimination and embraces diversity and inclusion.
  • Modulary Factory seeks to provide pay that is competitive and equitable based on the local markets in which we operate and pays wages that meet or exceed local legally required minimums.
  • We respect the principles of freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining and comply with applicable local, state, and national laws on working hours.
  • Modulary Factory promotes development of our local communities and always seeks to obtain local deals before making contact with companies outside of Romania.
  • We view access to clean water as an important human right, especially in water-scarce areas.

 

In addition, Modulary Factory respects the rule of law and operates in accordance with applicable law and our Standards of Business Ethics in our locations. In addition, we select suppliers and contractors based on our core values and our Supplier Code of Conduct and expect our suppliers and contractors to abide by the terms set forth therein.

Such principles include those set forth in the UN Guiding Principles (UNGP) on Business and Human Rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), and the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

Reporting Noncompliance

We encourage our associates, customers, suppliers, and other third parties to contact one of our ethics reporting resources if they see or learn of something that may indicate noncompliance with this policy. These resources include:

We do not tolerate acts of retaliation for any legally protected activity against anyone who makes a good faith report or who participates in an investigation. Making a report in “good faith” means that the information provided is complete and accurate and is believed to be true.
