The Infineum Group of Companies (“Infineum”) condemns any form of human rights abuse, including human trafficking and slavery, and supports and respects the protection of universal human rights. Infineum has adopted a Statement on Human Rights to this effect, and these principles are further reflected in Infineum’s Core Policies and Core Values. Infineum does not condone human rights abuses by its employees or suppliers, and will investigate reports of abuses and take appropriate action to ensure compliance.
Infineum’s Supplier Quality Assurance Process, which applies to suppliers of materials incorporated into Infineum products, makes clear that suppliers are expected to adhere to world-class quality principles, including ethics, integrity and strict compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The Process specifically communicates Infineum’s condemnation of human rights violations and its requirement that suppliers choose the course of highest integrity in their dealings and support and respect the protection of universal human rights. Infineum’s purchase order terms and conditions reinforce suppliers’ obligation to comply with applicable laws and give Infineum the right to audit their compliance with such laws.
Infineum is certified under the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency’s Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program, a voluntary U.S. government program intended to improve supply chain security and thereby, among other measures, prevent human trafficking and slavery throughout the supply chain. Infineum ensures the security of its product supply chain, including with regard to risks of human trafficking and slavery, through its compliance with C-TPAT processes. Infineum expects its suppliers to meet C-TPAT standards of security for products imported into the United States and to use C-TPAT certified carriers or carriers who can demonstrate their ability to meet C-TPAT security criteria.
Infineum conducts periodic compliance trainings for its relevant employees, with such training to include training on the crimes of human trafficking and slavery.
