CALIFORNIA SUPPLY CHAINS ACT

 

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2012) (the “Act”) was designed to encourage manufacturers and larger retailers to provide consumers with information regarding their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains, to educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains, and thereby, to improve the lives of victims of slavery and human trafficking.

Camuto recognizes and supports the Act and therefore makes the following disclosures:

Camuto is committed to fair labor practices within our supply chain. Camuto's direct suppliers have been notified of Camuto's policy of enforcing and supporting the purpose of the Act and, by accepting a purchase order from Camuto, they certify that they will comply with our Vendor Operations Guide, which prohibits slavery and human trafficking.

Camuto's Code of Conduct holds personnel accountable for ensuring compliance and ethical standards in Camuto's domestic and international business. Camuto also maintains a compliance "hotline" that all personnel are instructed to use in the event that violations of law or policies are suspected and/or detected.

Although Camuto does not currently provide specialized training on slavery and human trafficking to its supply chain staff, we require that all employees comply with our policies, including our Code of Conduct, which mandates the prevention of slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain.

Camuto also hires independent third party auditors who routinely undertake unannounced visits to all our manufacturing locations and provide us with foll reports on the living and working conditions of people retained to work at those locations. Each location receives at least one unannounced audit visit in a year.

Camuto remains committed to serving its customers in a way that helps, not hurts the people and communities involved in its business. We welcome your input on this important issue. Written requests from consumers for a copy of this statement, or other information related to the above, may be obtained by emailing us at legal@camutogroup.com. Responses will be given within 30 days of receiving such request.
