Modern slavery is a serious human rights issue impacting millions of people in virtually every country and every supply chain. Modern slavery includes, but is not limited to, slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor and human trafficking.
In order to support our efforts to eliminate modern slavery in our supply chain, Kravet Inc. has recently implemented a Vendor Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct details our commitment to upholding our values and respecting human rights in our operations and business relationships, including our supply chain. Our Vendor Code of Conduct prohibits all forms of forced labor, including modern slavery. In addition, our Code of Conduct requires that our third party vendors provide fair and safe working conditions for all workers and further requires that they treat their employees with dignity and respect. Beginning in March 2017, we will require all of our suppliers to provide us with written certification of compliance with the Vendor Code of Conduct.
Our Vendor Code of Conduct also includes a mechanism for the reporting of any suspected violations. All reported violations that contain specific information will be investigated by Kravet Inc. and appropriate action will be taken where necessary.
A copy of Kravet Inc.’s Vendor Code of Conduct can be found below.
Kravet Inc., along with its subsidiaries and affiliated companies, is strongly committed to conducting its business ethically and with integrity. As a result, we require all of our vendors to read, understand and comply with our Vendor Code of Conduct. Failure of a vendor to conduct business in a manner that meets the standards set forth in this Code could result in a termination of our relationship with that vendor.
All Kravet Inc. vendors and their representatives shall conduct their business activities in full compliance with the applicable laws and regulations. All vendors shall comply with the following laws and/or policies:
All reported violations that include specific information will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken.
