Snyk Anti-Modern Slavery Statement 2022
This statement sets out how Snyk seeks to ensure that its operations and its supply chains are kept free of slavery and human trafficking (“Modern Slavery”).
Snyk Limited is the ultimate parent of the Snyk group of companies and has its registered office at Highlands House, Basingstoke Road, Reading, Berkshire RG7 1NT.
This statement is issued on behalf of Snyk Limited and its relevant affiliates
(together, the “Covered Affiliates”).
References to “Snyk”, “we”, “us”, or “our” in this statement are to Snyk Limited and the Covered Affiliates.
Snyk’s business is software-focused. Our developer security platform integrates directly into development tools, workflows, and automation pipelines, and enables our customers to more easily find, prioritize, and fix security vulnerabilities in code, dependencies, containers, and infrastructure as code. We also assist our customers by providing support and other professional services in relation to our platform.
More information on our platform and services can be found at www.snyk.io.
Typically, our major suppliers fall into one of the broad categories outlined below:
hosting services providers who host our data and our customers’ data processed in our platform;
third party licensors of software that we resell with, or embed or incorporate into, our own products and solutions; and
computer and office equipment suppliers.
Modern Slavery Risks
As noted above, our business focuses on the provision of software and professional services. Accordingly, we do not “manufacture” our products and services, at least not in the traditional meaning of that word (i.e., through the use of workers and machines in factories). Nor do we directly engage third parties to perform any such manufacturing on our behalf.
Having taken the time to consider the nature of our operations and our supply chains, we consider the Modern Slavery risk they present to be low.
Despite our assessment that the Modern Slavery risk presented by our operations and supply chains is low, we are committed in our absolute opposition to Modern Slavery.
Working with our legal counsel, we have prepared an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. As part of this Policy, we commit to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships, including ensuring that we and our trading partners do not engage in any Modern Slavery.
Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy applies to all personnel working directly for us or on our behalf. It forms an effective part of our corporate policies applicable to employees and contractors. We also have a Supplier Code of Conduct which requires suppliers to comply with applicable law on Modern Slavery.
We provide regular training on our policies to our personnel. This training will be updated to address the steps and practices outlined in our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy.
In support of our ideals regarding Modern Slavery, we will also start providing training to members of our sales and procurement teams on the importance of our partners sharing and reflecting our commitment against Modern Slavery.
Partner Adherence to our Values and Ethics
Due to the low risk of Modern Slavery being present in our supply chains, we do not have explicit systems to perform diligence on all of our suppliers to mitigate the risk. However, suppliers that we consider to be at higher risk of Modern Slavery or human trafficking are subject to a higher level of due diligence and targeted enquiries.
We feel it is appropriate that we rely on contractual protections in our agreements with our trading partners to protect against the risk of Modern Slavery existing in our supply chains.
We include specific commitments in our Supplier Code of Conduct, which provide that our trading partners do not, have not, and will not, engage in Modern Slavery.
Our standard-form Snyk contracts will also be amended to oblige our partners to comply with laws on Modern Slavery to protect against risk further upstream in the supply chain.
During the coming financial year we will:
update our personnel training program as described above;
include the anti-Modern Slavery contractual commitments referred to above;
continue to take steps where possible to ensure our operations and supply chains remain Modern Slavery-free; and
continue to monitor and review our assessment of the Modern Slavery risks in our operations and supply chains.
This statement has been prepared and published on behalf of Snyk Limited, and each of its Covered Affiliates pursuant to section 54(1) of the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 in respect of the financial year ending December 31st, 2021.

Snyk Limited and each of its Covered Affiliates
