The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires retailers and manufacturers that do business in California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains.
North American Breweries (“NAB”) is a Triple Bottom Line company. That means that NAB works to reach goals and track progress in three dimensions: economic, environmental and social. In keeping with that philosophy, NAB strives to achieve high standards of legal and ethical conduct for itself, its employees and its business partners, and to ensure compliance with all laws.
NAB expects all its suppliers to operate ethically and within the bounds of all applicable laws and regulations. NAB has a limited number of suppliers and over 90% are located in the United States and Canada; both countries outlaw slavery and human trafficking and have strong enforcement authorities to monitor and ensure compliance with those laws and prosecute violations. For that reason, NAB believes the risk of engaging a supplier who is engaging in slavery and/or human trafficking is extremely low. Based on that risk analysis, NAB does not have a self- or third-party plan for auditing our suppliers to evaluate their compliance human trafficking and slavery laws.
NAB has a Code of Conduct and is in the process of developing Leader and Manager training to ensure that managers not only abide by that Code of Conduct, but that they also model behaviors that reinforce NAB’s values and establish a culture of respect for our employees, stakeholders and the communities in which we operate.
