The following statutes require disclosure statements be placed on company websites:
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
This statute requires retail sellers and manufacturers doing business in the state of California to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains for tangible goods offered for sale.
At Bush Brothers & Company, we believe that our sourcing practices, like all other business practices at the company, must adhere to the values of integrity, responsibility, trust, and caring, as exemplified by our founder, A.J. Bush. The protection of the rights of those involved in our supply chain is one element of responsible sourcing.
OUR OWN OPERATIONS:
We comply with the laws in every nation where we operate and recognize and respect the cultures, customs, and practices of our consumers and customers.
We conduct internal reviews of our supply chain to evaluate and address risks to human rights.
We provide training on human rights to company employees involved in supply chain management, including training on mitigating related risks in the supply chain. Employees are accountable for upholding our values.
OUR DIRECT SUPPLIERS:
We want to work with suppliers and contractors whose values and standards align with ours.
We ask our direct suppliers to certify that they comply with laws addressing human rights in the countries where they do business. We rely on their certification, but do not audit their operations regarding these practices. When we become aware of non-compliance, we notify our suppliers and contractors, and ask them to develop and implement corrective action.
As with all of our efforts, we continually seek ways to improve our entire supply chain performance.
