The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires retailers and manufacturers that do business in California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains.
FIFCO USA is a Triple Bottom Line company. That means that FIFCO USA works to reach goals and track progress in three dimensions: economic, environmental and social. In keeping with that philosophy, FIFCO USA strives to achieve high standards of legal and ethical conduct for itself, its employees and its business partners, and to ensure compliance with all laws.
FIFCO USA expects all its suppliers to operate ethically and within the bounds of all applicable laws and regulations. FIFCO USA has a limited number of suppliers and over 90% are located in the United States and Canada; both countries outlaw slavery and human trafficking and have strong enforcement authorities to monitor and ensure compliance with those laws and prosecute violations. For that reason, FIFCO USA believes the risk of engaging a supplier who is engaging in slavery and/or human trafficking is extremely low. Based on that risk analysis, FIFCO USA does not have a self- or third-party plan for auditing our suppliers to evaluate their compliance human trafficking and slavery laws.
FIFCO USA has a Code of Conduct and is in the process of developing Leader and Manager training to ensure that managers not only abide by that Code of Conduct, but that they also model behaviors that reinforce FIFCO USA’s values and establish a culture of respect for our employees, stakeholders and the communities in which we operate.
