Most of Open GI’s operations are UK based, and we source goods and services from predominantly UK-based suppliers whose supply chains may extend to other regions. In addition to this, we have three software development centres in Krakow, Poland, Skopje, Northern Macedonia, and Lake Ohrid, Northern Macedonia which use a limited number of supply chains for goods and services necessary to operate these offices.
Given the nature of the Group’s business (the development and sale of software), most supplies tend to be of tools and services that enable these activities, such as the hardware on which our developers work and third-party software to enhance our operations. We also procure services and supplies to ensure that the premises that we own, or rent are fully operational.
We recognise that it is impossible to guarantee that no slavery or human trafficking is present anywhere in any supply chain, and we therefore continually assess potential high-risk areas. If necessary, we take appropriate action to ensure we are only working with suppliers who share our commitment to eliminating modern slavery and human trafficking.
