California Supply Chain Transparency Act

  • ETC fully supports human rights and good labor practices, whether for our employees, contractors, customers or suppliers.  We are constantly working to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations and requirements of manufacturers.  ETC is committed to fostering a healthy, safe and sustainable global environment, as well as contributing to sustainable practices around the world.  For more information about our environmental policies, please visit http://www.etcconnect.com/About/Environmental-Policy.aspx

    ETC does not presently conduct assessments of its product suppliers for the specific purpose of verifying whether or not they are at risk for violating anti-slavery and human trafficking laws.  ETC does not use third party verifiers.  We are unable to verify whether any subcontractors use labor brokers.  ETC does not presently audit its direct suppliers to evaluate their compliance with applicable anti-slavery and human trafficking regulations.  ETC includes a clause in its terms and conditions, which stipulates that our suppliers must comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and ordinances, as well as all lawful orders, standards, rules and regulations, but ETC does not specifically require our direct suppliers to certify that they comply with anti-slavery and human trafficking laws in the country or countries in which they do business.  Since ETC does not presently have specified anti-slavery and human trafficking standards internally or externally, we do not have associated accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet such standards.  Lastly, ETC does not provide specific training to its employees or contractors who have direct responsibility for supply chain management on human trafficking and slavery.

    In respect of the goals and objectives of the California Supply Chains Act, we have taken the initial steps of reviewing our vendor selection process, and our vendor terms and conditions.
