Transparence de la chaîne logistique : pour une chaîne logistique plus éthique
The Children's Place s'engage à augmenter la transparence de sa chaîne logistique dans le but de prévenir la traite des êtres humains et le travail forcé. Nous suivons les étapes suivantes pour éviter ces risques :
1. Verification: We assess our supply chain to evaluate risks of human trafficking and forced labor. This risk assessment is performed internally. We use advisories published by the US Department of State and the US Department of Labor as the foundation to evaluate the risk of human trafficking and forced labor in the countries from which we source product. In addition, our Vendor Code of Conduct seeks to evaluate potential risks of human trafficking and forced labor at the vendor and factory levels.
2. Auditing: We regularly audit factories manufacturing our products for compliance with our Vendor Code of Conduct which, among other requirements, prohibits human trafficking and forced labor. We conduct a mix of both unannounced and announced audits, which are performed by either an independent third-party organization or our Responsible Sourcing team. We strive to audit all factories at least once per year; however, the frequency of audits is determined by audit findings.
3. Certification: We require all vendors to certify, on at least an annual basis, that they comply with our Vendor Code of Conduct, which prohibits human trafficking and forced labor.
4. Internal Accountability: Our associates and consultants are expected to conduct themselves according to the standards in our Code of Business Conduct. Each year, our associates receive training on the Code of Business Conduct and certify that they will abide by its principles, including compliance with all laws and regulations of the United States and the country in which our associates, consultants and business partners are located. If an associate or consultant fails to comply with any company policy, we take corrective action, as deemed necessary.
5. Formation: Nous offrons une formation annuelle sur la façon d'identifier et de prévenir la traite des êtres humains et le travail forcé aux associés qui ont une responsabilité directe dans la gestion de la chaîne d'approvisionnement.
