MOMA Solar is committed to the highest levels of integrity and ethical standards, including our commitment to human rights.
MOMA Solar is committed to safe workplaces and to limiting the risk of modern slavery within its own business and supply chains. MOMA Solar processes are designed to ensure that the company sources products and services in accordance with its legal obligations and in line with community expectations and its own values, while working with suppliers to prevent, mitigate and where appropriate, remedy modern slavery practices in their operations and supply chains.
HOW WE MONITOR AND AVOID MODERN SLAVERY
MOMA Solar has initiated a risk management process to track, manage, report, and prevent incidents where the company could potentially cause, contribute to, or be directly linked to modern slavery practices.
A Risk Questionnaire is applied to existing suppliers that are ranked as high risk. For potential and new suppliers, the Risk Questionnaire will be sent to these suppliers as part of the standard Procurement sourcing process.
Questionnaire responses that highlight a potential risk will be investigated. Where required, a remedial action plan will be agreed with the supplier with defined objectives and time frames to achieve these.
A remediation plan will be agreed between MOMA Solar and the supplier to determine the appropriate course of action to be taken within the agreed time frames. The remediation plan will be reviewed at regular intervals in conjunction with MOMA Solar and the relevant supplier.
All MOMA Solar suppliers are required to comply with the MOMA Solar Supplier Code of Conduct and are required to work with MOMA Solar on identifying and addressing the Modern Slavery risks in their respective supply chains. All suppliers are expected to promptly notify MOMA Solar of any identified or suspected, on reasonable grounds, risks of Modern Slavery practices within their own supply chains and cooperate with MOMA Solar in relation to any remediation plan to address those risks.

MOMA Solar takes a zero-tolerance stance on sexual harassment in the workplace (including out of office activities, business trips and/or out of office events). It is the obligation and responsibility of every employee to ensure that the workplace is free from sexual harassment. Everyone within the MOMA Solar working environment is responsible for the care and protection of our staff by reporting any information about suspected sexual harassment within the workplace to senior staff.
BEHAVIOURS THAT ARE CONSIDERED SEXUAL HARASSMENT.
Sexual harassment is any unwelcome sexual advance, unwelcome request for sexual favours, or other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature which makes a person feel offended, humiliated, or intimidated, and where that reaction is reasonable in the circumstances.
Examples of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to:
Behaviour that may also be considered to be an offence under criminal law, such as physical assault, indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking or obscene communications.
All above examples of sexual harassment in the workplace are gender neutral and will apply to all future and current staff. If this policy is violated disciplinary action will be taken against the individual or individuals involved. This can include criminal disciplinary action where necessary.
Wherever possible MOMA Solar will create an environment where employees feel comfortable approaching senior staff members to report behaviour they have seen or experienced that is inappropriate so action can be taken, and individuals can be protected from any further/future inappropriate behaviour. All reporting or complaints will be kept confidential out of safety and respect for the victim.
Some forms of sexual harassment (e.g. sexual assault, stalking, indecent exposure, physical molestation, obscene phone calls) may constitute criminal conduct. Such complaints should be dealt with by the relevant authorities (such as the police) as part of the criminal justice system. MOMA Solar will work with authorities in every capacity to ensure justice is served smoothly and quickly with as little distress as possible to the victim.
MOMA Solar practices a zero-tolerance approach to workplace bullying, harassment and/or aggressive behaviour. All workers at MOMA Solar have the
right to be treated with respect and dignity and it is required that we treat each other accordingly to create a safe and productive working environment.
STAFF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
All staff must:
WHAT IS CONSIDERED BULLYING/ AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR AND WHAT IS NOT.
Things that are not considered bullying/harassment/aggressive behaviour:
RESOLVING ISSUES/FORMAL COMPLAINTS OR CONCERNS.
In the event that an employee believes that they are the victim of bullying or aggressive behaviour, then they should consult promptly with their senior staff. If the matter falls within the scope of one of the definitions of bullying and aggressive behaviour, above, then immediate steps will be taken to address the matter, informally and then formally if necessary.
If the informal response does not resolve the issue, it will be taken up to a formal response for more serious action.
Resolution of this matter will then include.
An external consultant may be utilized to assist in resolving the matter if warranted.

As well as a working environment that is inclusive, rewarding, and safe to express oneself fully.

This policy applies to all current and future staff. It is does not form part of your employee contract but is binding and violation of the policy will result in disciplinary action or possible termination. Every worker should feel safe to report complaints and concerns that the policy is not being adhered by in the workplace.
FORMS OF DISCRIMINATION

MOMA Solar is dedicated to providing renewable energy lighting solutions to industrial sectors such as Mining, Government and Construction. Our zero emissions products hold a focus on local manufacturing to support Australian businesses and the Australian Economy. We strive to supply high quality products that require minimal maintenance, fewer repairs, and reduced replacement parts.
MOMA Solar is committed to conducting business in an ethical and responsible manner. This includes respecting the internationally recognised human rights throughout our business operation:
Human rights are fundamental rights and freedoms that all people are entitled to, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. These rights are enshrined in the International Bill of Human Rights and other international treaties and instruments.
As MOMA solar is focused on the labour side of industry development we work with large companies that have more developed policies and procedures to handle issues such as Human Rights. Working with these companies it is to be expected of us to adhere to their policies and procedures in regard to human rights issues to ensure both parties are on the same page regarding these issues. This prompts us regularly review our policies and procedures against the United Nations Standards and ensure we are educating ourselves on any possible changes and/or developments.
At MOMA Solar we are committed to ensuring our products and company culture has a focus on sustainability. Senior management is committed to preserving and, where practicable, improving the quality of our environment including prevention of pollution as set out in the EPA (Environmental Protection Authority) Legislation. Our product goal is permanent and/or non-permanent sustainable lighting solutions that impact the environment significantly less than its alternatives. We are always striving to further improve and expand our field of expertise to provide more and more sustainable alternatives to our core sectors.
We have partnered with companies that reflect our environmental goals as much as possible. Such as Melro Rotomould that creates our bases out of recyclable plastic that can be reused at the end of its 25-year life span up to 7 times and CoatesHire whose environmental policy aligns our own vision and goals. We have also partner with the Plant a Tree Foundation in an effort to counter act our carbon footprint and restore native landscapes and habitats across areas of WA that have been previously cleared for agriculture.
We will endeavour to seek out and partner with more and more companies that share our environmental goals as well as making our own company more environmentally conscious in practice and design.
THE ENVIORNMENTAL LEGISLATION WE FOLLOW
The relevant legislation that we will be following is the EPA Legislation as endorsed by the Government of Western Australia. Through this legislation we will work to comply with the state governments outlined goals of an environmentally conscious future. As a business we will work alongside EPA and their goals to work towards the “the prevention, control and abatement of pollution and environmental harm, for the conservation, preservation, protection, enhancement and management of the environment and for matters incidental to or connected with the foregoing” (https://www.epa.wa.gov.au/legislation).
MONITOR AND REVIEW
We are conducting case studies whenever possible on our lighting set ups and monitor their impact on the sectors they are introduced to in order to better see our products strengths and faults and further work towards improving their environmental impact. Our case studies hold a focus on a reduction in noise and light pollution, the reduction of on-site staff needed to man just the lighting as it was before and a reduction in price of lighting needs over the same time period.
