We rely on a global supply chain to conduct business. It is important that our suppliers maintain high standards of quality and ethical business practices. We require a highly skilled labor force that can produce quality finished goods through the use of high tech capabilities and proper equipment. Considering this standard, poor working and manufacturing conditions are unacceptable.
The road to becoming a better corporate citizen requires that we take responsibility for the impacts of our upstream processes. This year, we surveyed our suppliers on their labor rights practices to better understand work conditions across our supply chain. Additionally, we performed an in-person audit of our largest contract manufacturers in Asia to ensure they provide a safe and healthy work environment and treat employees fairly. As our business grows, so will our global supply chain.
