California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure Statement
Globecomm Systems Inc. (“Globecomm”) is providing this disclosure pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”). The Act requires certain manufacturers and retailers doing business in the State of California to disclose information regarding their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains.
Globecomm is committed to ensuring that our supply chain reflects Globecomm’s values and respect for human rights and the environment. Globecomm’s relationships with suppliers are based on lawful, efficient and fair practices. We expect our suppliers to obey the laws that require them to treat workers fairly, provide a safe and healthy work environment and protect environmental quality.
In furtherance of this policy, Globecomm uses the following efforts to ensure and verify the absence of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain:
Written Policies and Procedures: Globecomm maintains written policies and procedures that prohibit the use of slavery or human trafficking.
Supplier Certifications: Globecomm requires active vendors to complete an annual certification that confirms our suppliers are free from forced labor, slavery and human trafficking. This process enables Globecomm in the verification of product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery. Globecomm’s suppliers are obligated to expect the same standards of their suppliers in turn. This verification is conducted internally and not by a third party.
Audits: Globecomm has the right to audit suppliers and utilizes its internal audit team to conduct any such audits.
Accountability Standards: Suppliers that fail to comply with Globecomm policies are marked as ineligible vendors within Globecomm’s purchasing system. Employees and leaders who violate Globecomm’s policies are subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
