Ensuring human rights are respected is fundamental to our core purpose and integral to how we operate as a business. Our public policies concerning human rights clearly articulate the high standards we hold ourselves to and the expectations we have of our suppliers and partners that include freedom from slavery and human trafficking. We do not tolerate slave or trafficked labour and will remediate any violations promptly by collaborating transparently with all appropriate stakeholders.
Policies are critical to addressing risks to human rights, but they are only the start. To reinforce our policies and standards, we have a range of tools to enable us to proactively identify, avoid and address negative impacts on human rights across our value chain. As required by The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, we disclose an annual statement outlining the steps we are taking to tackle Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.
