CALL IT SPRING Ethical Sourcing Policy
CALL IT SPRING wants to ensure that every business decision in which we are involved promotes social welfare in the countries where we do business.
Our Code of Ethics and our Supplier Partnership Manual specify the minimum requirements by which all of our suppliers and their own suppliers must abide, including employment practices, legal requirements, health and safety standards and environmental protection laws and regulations. Also, our Code of Ethics expressly prohibits the use of child or forced labour and any forms of coercion, abuse or harassment.
CALL IT SPRING conducts audits of our suppliers based on the conditions outlined in our Code of Ethics and our Supplier Partnership Manual. These verifications take the form of announced and unannounced on-site inspections as well as on-site and off-site discussions with workers conducted by independent monitoring firms. These audits are performed regularly and any non-compliance is detailed in a Corrective Action Plan Report. In the event resolution is not completed within the agreed upon time frame or is not possible, CALL IT SPRING has the right to choose to terminate the business relationship with the non-compliant supplier.
CALL IT SPRING’s Global Sourcing and Social Compliance teams combine efforts to develop an approach that goes deeper into our supply chain. CALL IT SPRING specifies in our Code of Ethics that manufacturing partners must associate with suppliers that comply with legal requirements in any country in which their business is conducted and which meet or exceed CALL IT SPRING’s minimum standards.
CALL IT SPRING’s Global Sourcing and Social Compliance teams are trained on the provisions of CALL IT SPRING’s Code of Ethics and use their visits to factories and supplier facilities as one part of our monitoring and verification programs. They have been trained to report questionable behaviours, including slavery and human trafficking, to management for follow-up and action.
CALL IT SPRING has undertaken these efforts to verify our supply chain and to ensure that our suppliers provide a safe and healthy working environment to all of their employees.Last
