McGard Group Conflict Mineral Policy
We are taking steps to develop and implement a policy prohibiting use of tantalum, tin, gold, tungsten, or their derivatives, whose extraction or trade supports conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo or adjoining countries, and/or contributes to inhuman treatment, including human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, child labor, torture and war crimes in the region.
Our efforts are not intended at altogether banning procurement of minerals from the DRC and adjoining countries, but to assure sourcing from responsible sources in the region.
We ask our suppliers to cooperate with us in our efforts to assure procurement of non-conflict minerals.
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 Disclosure Statement
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires certain manufacturers and retail sellers to provide disclosures with respect to efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in supply chains. This statement is our disclosure.
McGard, LLC (“McGard”) believes that all workers, including those workers in our supply chain, should experience safe, fair, and non-discriminatory working conditions. McGard endorses these principles and is pleased to support suppliers that share them.
In furtherance of these principles, our team continually strives to develop outstanding, long-term relationships with reputable suppliers. We do not, nor do we engage a third party to, verify that our product supply chain addresses risk of human trafficking and slavery. We do not, nor do we engage a third party to, audit our suppliers to evaluate their standards for human trafficking and slavery.
As a manufacturer headquartered in the United States, McGard actively supports and complies with all applicable laws, rules and regulations with respect to working hours, conditions, and wages, and supports suppliers that do the same. We do not currently require our direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into our products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business.
McGard actively trains its employees and management on issues that are important to both its business and to the communities within which we operate. We do not have explicit internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery and trafficking, nor do we provide employees and management with training on human trafficking and slavery or the mitigation of such risks in our supply chain.
