The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (”CTSCA”) requires companies above a certain size that manufacture or sell products in California to report on their websites the activities they engage in to ensure that their supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. Slavery and human trafficking are both illegal and unethical, and Saatva works to combats these issues as part of its overall commitment to complying with all applicable laws and regulations and operating in an ethical and socially responsible manner. Saatva expects its partners to conduct their businesses not only in a lawful manner, but also in compliance with the same high standards of integrity and ethics.
1. Saatva expects its partners to refrain from the direct or indirect use of slavery, forced labor or any forms of human trafficking. Saatva uses formal and informal means to monitor its supply chain to evaluate the risks of noncompliance involving slavery and human trafficking issues. This monitoring effort is conducted by both Saatva and third parties. To that end, Saatva will not knowingly do business with any supplier that supports, condones, or otherwise has issues with slavery, human trafficking, or forced labor.
2. Saatva informally assesses all potential suppliers during onboarding to detect any issues concerning slavery and human trafficking, but does not currently conduct any formal audits. If a supplier is determined to have violated applicable laws or has a higher level of risk in this regard, Saatva will take all appropriate action, which may include ending the partnership.
3. Saatva does not currently require its manufacturing or delivery partners to make any certifications regarding human trafficking or slavery.
4. Saatva does not currently have any specific standards or procedures in place that pertain to slavery and human trafficking.
5. Saatva does not currently conduct any specific management or employee training on the issues of slavery and human trafficking.
