Our policy is to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business and in any part of our supply chain. This is consistent with our Code of Conduct, Corporate Responsibility Policy, Supplier Code of Conduct and Global People Standards. Our Global People Standards cover, among other areas, pre-employment checks, zero tolerance for forced and compulsory labour, right to privacy, and child labor.
We conduct internal audits to verify we manage these risks in our operations. We recognize that certain categories of our supply chain carry a higher risk of child or slave labor and we therefore in 2017 implemented a new Supply Chain Policy and ISS ProcurePASS.
