California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 Disclosure
In 2010, California passed a law requiring companies to disclose what they are doing to address slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. Referred to as SB 657, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act seeks to “educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains.” It is Bardwil’s policy to comply with all applicable laws relating to its supply chains and the company has procedures in place to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery. As part of periodic routine audits of suppliers conducted by its agents, Bardwil verifies compliance with company standards against human trafficking and slavery in its supply chains. Bardwil has confirmed with its suppliers that materials incorporated into the product comply with applicable laws against slavery and human trafficking in the countries in which they are doing business. Our employees and business partners are aware of the appropriate action to take in the event that a supplier does not meet company standards regarding slavery and trafficking, and ongoing educational efforts are conducted for company employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management.
