Forced labor and human trafficking can take many forms, including child labor. Ampac and its affiliated companies doing business in California are strictly opposed to forced labor, child labor, and human trafficking used in the products or services that they sell.
All ProAmpac suppliers where annual spend exceeds $250,000 are expected to certify compliance that they operate in a manner that respects the rights of people and conform to ProAmpac’s Supplier Code of Conduct. This code requires that these businesses comply with the laws, rules, regulations, and ProAmpac policies of the countries in which they operate. This Code of Conduct provides, among other things, that suppliers may not use or support child labor, indentured, involuntary, or prison labor in the manufacture of products or services sold to ProAmpac.
Verification and Audit
Suppliers must certify their compliance with ProAmpac’s Supplier Code of Conduct. Suppliers are requested to maintain written records evidencing compliance with provisions of the Code of Conduct and must make those records available to ProAmpac upon request. Random audits will be conducted on suppliers to monitor compliance to the ProAmpac Code of Conduct standards.
Procurement personnel receive training (as necessary) on the Code of Conduct, including updates and discussions of child labor laws, human trafficking, and forced labor.
Any employee who fails to abide by the ProAmpac Supplier Code of Conduct will be subject to disciplinary action, which may include termination. ProAmpac may terminate its relationship with any supplier that is not in compliance with the Supplier Code of Conduct.
