Spanx, Inc. expects that its suppliers, manufacturers, contractors, subcontractors, and any other person who is involved in supervising the manufacture and supply of SPANX products (“Suppliers”), will share SPANX's commitment to honesty, safety, and legal and ethical behavior.
SPANX is committed to preventing child, forced or trafficked labor in its supply chain and has taken the following steps in support of this commitment:
Spanx internally verifies its supply chains and monitors the factories that produce SPANX branded products. We visit the factories that produce our products as well as rely on third party auditors to help ensure the quality and socially responsible manufacture of our products, including evaluating the risk of human trafficking and slavery.
We require our direct suppliers to comply with the Spanx, Inc. Code of Supplier Conduct and we internally audit our suppliers to evaluate their compliance with this Code.
We require our direct suppliers to certify their compliance with the Spanx, Inc. Code of Supplier Conduct and suppliers that do not comply with the Code (and require that their sub-suppliers comply) are subject to termination and other remedies.
We are implementing a compliance program, including employee and management training with respect to mitigating the risk of human trafficking and slavery in supply chains.
