SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
Being a part of a global supply chain makes us acutely aware of the risks of slavery and human trafficking in the regions we do business. We recognize our responsibility to ensure as far as possible that we do not conduct business with companies who do not adhere to the highest ethical standards and who we have concerns may use illegal / abusive practices, or enforced / child labor. As a minimum standard, Valtris expects the companies we do business with to adhere to the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights At Work.
To underpin our commitment, Valtris Specialty Chemicals operates to a code of business ethics which we regularly emphasize to our employees with responsibility for establishing business links with customers and suppliers. This is carried out periodically at our Commercial & Technical Review Meetings.
Valtris works closely with its key suppliers and customers, building strong relationships to understand both their operations and business ethics as well as the commercial aspect of their business. Where we purchase goods from businesses in high risk regions of the world, we have initiated targeted requests to these companies to obtain assurances that their practices meet the required standards and we work with industry organizations to identify key risks and good industry practices.
At our own worldwide production facilities and sales offices, Valtris abides by all local employment laws and customs. We seek to provide a safe, healthy and desirable workplace with working conditions and payment of wages and benefits that meet or exceed the minimum standards required of local laws and regulation. Our employees are recruited, selected, and promoted on the basis of objective and non-discriminatory criteria. No unlawful harassment, victimization or discrimination of any kind is tolerated. In the case of personal physical disability, employees are supported to work for as long as medically fit, in available work with appropriate accommodations, avoiding prejudice and discrimination in the process.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Valtris Specialty Chemicals slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending December 2016, having been approved by the CEO.
