CP Kelco will never use forced, indentured or involuntary labor in any of our operations. We will not tolerate any instances of human trafficking or other forced labor. We will never conduct business with any third parties who engage in human trafficking or forced labor.
We expect our employees, agents and suppliers to comply with all laws and regulations concerning forced, indentured or involuntary labor and human trafficking. The Huber Principle of Respect for People is a core value at CP Kelco, and we expect that all workers in the supply chain will be treated fairly and with dignity.
Currently, we are evaluating our purchasing processes and training programs to ensure that employees and agents are knowledgeable about issues and mitigation strategies regarding forced labor and human trafficking. We will also evaluate supplier audit programs that will target key direct material suppliers to ensure that our suppliers understand the importance of this issue and that they conduct a review of their own purchasing processes.
Any concerns regarding forced labor and human trafficking in the supply chain will be promptly investigated and validated concerns will result in immediate action including termination or severance of the business relationship.
