Oatey Company, its affiliates,
divisions, and subsidiaries are proud to conduct business in a
manner that is both environmentally and socially responsible. This
commitment to honesty, integrity, and humanity has existed for
nearly 100 years and will continue as we expand our business
activities and work with suppliers domestically and globally to meet
Human trafficking and slavery are intolerable practices that clearly
go against everything we believe in. When choosing new suppliers and
evaluating existing ones, we look for companies that share our
values. Because of this, we require that our suppliers certify in
writing that they understand our Supplier Code of Conduct, which
prohibits the use of child, forced, or compelled labor.
Periodically, our employees conduct announced audits of our
suppliers to ensure that they conform to our expectations.
Although we do not currently have in place formal internal standards
or procedures regarding slavery and trafficking, other than the
Supplier Code of Conduct, we expect that our employees and
contractors will uphold all of our values and we consider it to be a
serious issue to be handled on a case-by-case basis when these
expectations are not met.
To that end, we have provided training to employees with direct
responsibility for our supply chain in order to increase their
awareness of these issues.
