Conflict Minerals Policy

Last updated: March 16, 2022 

1. Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

We at EXEO, our legal entities EXEO SAL, EXEO OFFSHORE SAL and SAS EXEO recognise the  risks of significant adverse impacts which may be associated with extracting, trading, handling and exporting minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas, and recognise that we have the responsibility to respect human rights and not contribute to conflict.

These minerals are defined to be tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold, also referred to as 3TG. By that, we commit to comply with the EU – the Conflict Minerals Regulation.  

We at Exeo, conduct due diligence to  ensure that throughout our supply chain, human rights are respected and that we do not contribute indirectly  to conflict or other related illegal activities..

We commit to:

  1. Establish  a strong management system to identify and assess risk in the supply chain and  report findings of the supply chain risk assessment to the Corporate Governance Committee.
  2. Adopt, widely disseminate and incorporate in contracts and/or agreements with suppliers policies on responsible sourcing of minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas. 
  3. Immediately suspend or discontinue engagement with suppliers where we identify a reasonable risk that they are sourcing from, or linked to, any party committing serious abuses and illicit trade in 3TG minerals.
  4. Establish a company level grievance mechanism allowing any interested party (affected persons or whistle-blowers) to voice concerns regarding the circumstances of mineral extraction, trade, handling and export in a conflict-affected and high-risk area. This will allow us to be alerted of risks in the supply chain as to the problems in addition to the company fact and risk assessments. 
  5. Engage and actively cooperate with industry members with whom we share suppliers or downstream companies with whom they have a business relationship to identify if there are conflict minerals used in the supply chain.

Re-Architect

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.

Re-Platform

This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.

Re-Host (Lift & Shift)

the migration of workloads from  to the cloud without changing the architecture. Machines get to keep their  OS and apps. This is the quickest and easy way to migrate, but since its  utilising IAAS, its is also the most expensive on the long term.
