"We consider the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking to be

relatively low in our direct business operations as our direct

workforce is largely comprised of professionally qualified or skilled

personnel. However, we are aware that inherent and potential risks of

modern slavery and human trafficking could be present in our supply

chains. These risks exist in our supply chains at various levels

depending on factors such as the type of product or service provided

and geographic location. For example, contingent workers (whether

engaged via vendor partners, independent contractors, consultants

or other staffing suppliers) in certain jurisdictions may be at higher

risk than those in other jurisdictions of encountering situations of

labor exploitation through force, fraud, debt bondage or other

coercion such as through a third-party labor agent, staffing or

recruitment agency, or other intermediaries. Other potential risks

that could exist in our supply chains include forms of excessive or

unpaid working hours, lack of rest days, personal identification or

passport retention, child or underaged labor, lack of adequate health

and safety protection, and discrimination. Facebook uses processes

to identify these risks of modern slavery and human trafficking such

as mapping of supply chains, conducting desk-based research, using

tools to identify high-risk work associated with the type products or

services and geographic locations, supplier surveys, and stakeholder

engagement" PG.2
