California Supply Chains Act
CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT (SB 657) Disclosure
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (the “Act”) requires retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to disclose their efforts to eradicate forced labor and human trafficking from their direct supply chain to tangible goods offered for sale. To that end, the following is Inland’s disclosure under the Act.
- Inland does not engage in verification or third-party verifications to assess and manage risk of human trafficking.
- Inland does not conduct independent and/or unannounced audits to evaluate compliance with Inland’s Supplier Code of Conduct for human trafficking and slavery in supply chains.
- Inland does not require our supply chain partners to certify that they comply with anti-slavery and human trafficking laws in the country or countries in which they do business.
- Adherence to the Supplier Code of Conduct is necessary for each supplier and its supply chain to do business with Inland.
- The Supplier Code of Conduct describes the standards with which our supply chain partners are required to comply on such matters such as fair labor practices and workplace environments including the non-use of forced labor, child labor, or human trafficking, and similar legal and ethical requirements.
- Inland requires suppliers to agree to comply with Inland’s Supplier Code of Conduct by signing an Acknowledgement.
- Inland reserves the right to monitor and verify compliance with the Code of Conduct. Suppliers that are not in compliance may be required to implement corrective actions. Inland may take actions to cancel outstanding orders, revoke a supplier’s approved status, or terminate a business relationship of any supplier that does not comply with the Code of Conduct or fails to take any corrective actions.
- Inland employees with direct responsibility for supply chain management will receive training upon hire and annual refresher training of Inland’s Supplier Code of Conduct.
- Employees are trained on the importance of complying with all applicable laws and are trained to report any behavior that deviates from applicable laws and other company policies.
What’s great about partnering is that we can proceed with high confidence that those same substrates, coatings or laminations will transfer seamlessly to the production environment.
