CA Transparency Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2012) (the “Act”) was designed to encourage manufacturers and larger retailers to provide consumers with information regarding their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains, to educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains, and thereby, to improve the lives of victims of slavery and human trafficking.
Awra LLC ("Awra") recognizes and supports the Act and therefore makes the following disclosures:
- Awra is committed to fair labor practices within our supply chain and business operations. Awra's direct suppliers have been notified of Awra's policy of enforcing and supporting the purpose of the Act and, by accepting a purchase order from Awra, they certify that they will comply with our policy, which prohibits slavery and human trafficking;
- Awra's Code of Conduct holds personnel accountable for ensuring compliance and ethical standards in Awra's domestic and international business;
- Although Awra does not currently provide specialized training on slavery and human trafficking to its supply chain staff, we require that all employees comply with our policies, including our Code of Conduct, which mandates the prevention of slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain; and
- At this time Awra does not conduct independent, unannounced inspections of third party facilities in its supply chain (in part due to challenges such as visa requirements in territories where Awra conducts business). However, Awra is actively seeking opportunities to incorporate independent, unannounced audits into its compliance plan.
Awra remains committed to serving its customers in a way that helps, not hurts the people and communities involved in its business. We welcome your input on this important issue. Written requests from consumers for a copy of this statement may be obtained by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Responses will be provided within thirty (30) days of receiving such request.
