California Transparency in Supply Chain Act

ClarkDietrich Building Systems Transparency in Supply Chain Policy:

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires certain companies doing business in California to make disclosures regarding their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains. As detailed in the ClarkDietrich Building Systems "Statement on Business Conduct and Responsibilities", "Business Conduct Guide", and "Conflict Minerals Policy", ClarkDietrich promotes honesty and integrity in all aspects of business and have the utmost respect for all individuals. We expect our suppliers to promote environments of respect for all individuals worldwide and to operate in a manner that imposes honor and integrity in all aspects of business. ClarkDietrich’s supply chain management and code of business conduct address each of the Act's five areas of focus:

  • Verification: ClarkDietrich verifies its supply chain through the supplier onboarding and contracting process and under our Conflict Minerals and Transparency in Supply Chain programs. As part of those programs, ClarkDietrich’s suppliers are expected to respect all individuals and promote the core values of dignity and honor in their operations. This includes zero tolerance for human trafficking and illegal labor practices in the supply chain.
     
  • Audits: ClarkDietrich monitors its suppliers for adherence to our Statement on Business Conduct and Responsibilities and Business Conduct Guide. We reserve the right to perform audits of suppliers to evaluate any risks in the supply chain in violation of ClarkDietrich’s policies, including activities related to human trafficking or illegal labor practices.
     
  • Certification: As part of ClarkDietrich’s contracting process, suppliers must agree to comply with all governing laws and regulations. This of course includes all prohibitions against forced, involuntary, or child labor, and any form of human trafficking.
     
  • Accountability: Only suppliers who comply with the expectations detailed in ClarkDietrich’s Statement on Business Conduct and Responsibilities, Business Conduct Guide, Conflict Minerals Policy, Transparency in Supply Chain Policy and contract terms and conditions will be permitted to supply materials or services to ClarkDietrich. If non-compliance with these standards (including human trafficking and slavery prohibitions) is found and verified, such suppliers will be removed from ClarkDietrich Building Systems' supply chain.
     
  • Training: ClarkDietrich Purchasing department employees will be trained on and will be familiar with the Conflict Minerals and Transparency in Supply Chain policies. Employees are encouraged to report any possible violations of ClarkDietrich’s supplier policies through our corporate compliance office at supply.chain@clarkdietrich.com.
