As a manufacturer doing business in California and pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, Mi-T-M Corporation offers the following statement regarding its efforts to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain.
Corporate Responsibility: Mi-T-M recognizes its social responsibility as part of the community in all regions in which it operates. Mi-T-M respects the cultural, social, political, and legal diversity of societies and nations. Within the framework of the laws and regulations of individual countries and its scope of influence, MI-T-M strives to harmonize commercial goals with the social and ecological requirements in our business world, human rights, and the environment. These principles are part of our corporate culture and apply throughout our company. All our employees are asked to ensure they are observed and we expect our business partners to adhere to similar principles.
Human Trafficking: MI-T-M strongly opposes slavery and human trafficking, and would never knowingly conduct business with contractors or employees engaged in such practices.
MI-T-M reviews its product supply chain to evaluate human trafficking and slavery risks. At present this is done internally.
The Mi-T-M Vendor Code of Conduct specifically states and verifies that we do not employ children (or anyone under the age of 14) and follow all applicable laws regarding these standards. We expect our suppliers and other business partners to comply with applicable labor and human rights laws.
MI-T-M conducts supplier audits to evaluate whether suppliers comply with applicable corporate standards and principles, including those related to human trafficking and slavery. These audits are scheduled and review all aspects of the supply chain including environment, safety, human trafficking, child labor and other legal requirements.
MI-T-M purchasing policies require that our direct suppliers certify that materials incorporated into MI-T-M products comply with the laws of the country or countries where such suppliers do business, which would include those addressing human trafficking and slavery.
Mi-T-M provides employees linked directly to supply chain management with training related to identifying and reporting human trafficking and slavery. Mi-T-M expects all employees to comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the conduct of our business activities. This extends to laws regarding slavery or human trafficking in the countries in which we do business.
