Our Corporate Sustainability Commitments

Child labor

The Company prohibits the use of child labor and is committed to wider efforts to eliminate such practices from its global supply chains by communicating its policy to all suppliers and taking all reasonable action to ensure its compliance.

Fair practice

Each employee, officer and director should deal fairly with the Company’s suppliers, customers, competitors and employees. No employee, officer or director should take unfair advantage through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or any other unfair-dealing practice.

Anti-slavery laws in supply chain

Since January 1, 2012, when the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) became effect in the State of California, Elementis has had policies in place to comply with legislation that seeks to end slavery and human trafficking and requires companies to disclose their efforts to ensure that their supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Bribery and other corrupt practices

The Company strictly prohibits giving or promising, directly or indirectly, money or any other financial advantage to any person in order to obtain or retain business or to secure an improper advantage with respect to any aspect of the Company’s business.
