Transparency in Supply Chains

Slavery and Human Trafficking Avoidance Policy Statement

 

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect January 1, 2012. This law requires large retailers and manufacturers who do business in the state of California, and have gross worldwide sales of over $100M USD, to be transparent about the efforts they have undertaken to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chain.

Jabil has internal policies and practices that are based on international labor and human rights standards. We endeavor to use companies in our supply chain that create an environment where workers have the right to freely choose employment, the right to associate freely, the right to voluntarily join or not join labor unions and worker councils, if they choose.

Jabil's focus on eradicating slavery and human trafficking is part of a larger effort of supply chain transparency and accountability. Jabil is taking multiple actions to verify the absence of forced labor, slavery and human trafficking in our own operations and extended supply chain, including the following:

  • Slavery and Human Trafficking Avoidance Policies 
  • Provisions in Supplier Contracts 
  • Awareness Training 
  • Internal Audits 
  • 3rd Party Validated Audits 
  • Worker Engagement Surveys 
  • On-Site Supplier Audits

Additionally, Jabil is a founding member of Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), which has since 2004 built upon its Code of Conduct which prohibits the use of forced, bonded, indentured labor or involuntary prison labor. We audit our suppliers for compliance with this EICC code and take seriously all forms of non-conformance. The EICC also has a Freely Chosen Employment (FCE) task force designed to help identify opportunities to share best practices among members, expand the Code of Conduct, and make recommendations on available tools and training.
