California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
DISCLOSURE STATEMENT PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT OF 2010
Evergreen Packaging supports the right of all individuals to be free from slavery in the workplace. Evergreen abhors the practice of human trafficking and slavery and applauds efforts being made globally to eliminate this practice. Evergreen includes in all its contracts with suppliers a requirement that suppliers provide a workplace that is compliant with all local and national laws governing employment. By signing a purchase order or contract the supplier certifies that it conducts business pursuant to local and national laws related to employment and its failure to do so will be considered a breach of the contract. Evergreen Packaging sources its raw materials and other inputs in the US with reputable companies who have internal standards requiring all employment practices comport with US laws including those that prohibit slavery and human trafficking. As these suppliers are governed by strict US employment laws, Evergreen has not at this time determined the need for additional verification or independent audit.
