The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 is focused on eliminating slavery and human trafficking from global supply chains. This act requires companies that do business in California to disclose what efforts their organizations engage in to ensure their supply chain is free of human rights violations.
The Stow Company (“Stow”) has implemented a comprehensive corporate social responsibility program to ensure that we operate within the highest standards of business ethics and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations.
As good corporate stewards, Stow will not work with any suppliers that engage in human trafficking and/or slavery. As part of our comprehensive social responsibility program, we conduct audits which serve as a starting point to understand suppliers’ compliance infrastructure. Issues such as human trafficking, slavery, forced/prison labor and child labor are zero tolerance violations and Stow will not conduct business with suppliers having such practices. Our audits allow us to verify that all labor at our suppliers’ factories is voluntary.
