California Supply Chains Transparency Disclosure (SB 657)
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) requires large manufacturers and retailers that sell goods in California to make certain disclosures regarding their efforts to address slavery and human trafficking.
Leatherman is committed to the goals of SB 657 and compliance with all laws and regulations governing efforts to address and eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our supply chains.
Leatherman monitors its supply chain and expects its suppliers to ensure respect for human rights and compliance with laws governing labor and hiring practices. Leatherman’s largest suppliers are visited multiple times throughout the year, and all suppliers are required to verify compliance with applicable laws governing slavery and human trafficking. Such monitoring does not currently include a certification regarding the materials used in manufacture by each supplier. Leatherman conducts audits of its suppliers, but does not currently use third party verification bodies. The audits are announced. Leatherman will take action upon discovery of violations, including requesting a prompt redress of alleged violations, and corrective actions. Leatherman reserves the right to terminate the supplier relationship in the event of a breach of applicable laws by its suppliers.
Leatherman maintains the highest ethical standards in its business dealings, including employee trainings on compliance with all applicable laws and corporate policies, and enforcement of those laws and policies.
