California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure (SB 657)
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) requires companies that manufacture or sell products in the State of California to provide information concerning their efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their direct supply chains. The law was designed to increase consumers’ knowledge about products they buy and the companies they choose to support.
Andeavor, its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Andeavor”) are committed to complying with the law wherever we operate and conducting all business activities in accordance with ethical standards. We expect the same of the parties with which we do business. Our ethical standard is reflected in our Code of Business Conduct, “Doing the Right Thing” (“Code”), which outlines our expectations of ethical conduct and compliance with all laws from our employees and others who work for and represent Andeavor.
In addition to receiving our Code, employees take annual ethics and compliance training to certify their adherence with its standards, and/or disclose any exceptions. Andeavor maintains a 24/7 Business Conduct Helpline and businessconducthelpline.com, where anyone can anonymously submit concerns of possible ethics and compliance violations, including slavery and human trafficking. Every submission is reviewed and handled accordingly. Any employee or contractor who is found to have violated our Code is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, termination of contracts, and referral to appropriate legal authorities.
To ensure that our supply chain reflects our commitment to compliance and ethics standards, our corporate business practice provides that Andeavor’s purchasing decisions with suppliers are based on integrity. Andeavor expects its suppliers to comply with legal requirements and operate consistently with the principles of our Code when working on our behalf. Accordingly, we consider these rights issues when we assess potential suppliers. While Andeavor does not have a formal verification program, we do perform periodic audits of suppliers to evaluate and address issues relating to compliance with regulations and Andeavor’s policies, processes and procedures.
