“As shown below, the majority of our sovereign exposure is in countries that have signed and ratified several of these conventions:

• 1957 ILO Convention on the Abolition of Forced Labor: signatories commit to not make use of any form of forced labor and to take effective measures to secure the immediate and complete abolition of forced labor.

• 1999 ILO Convention on the Worst Forms of Child Labor: signatories commit to take immediate and effective measures to secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labor.”

“Our standards for excellence apply to our vendors as well as our employees; we expect our vendors to operate ethically and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, as provided in our master service agreements. Our agreements with vendors require compliance with all applicable laws, regulations, and orders of any governmental, judicial, or administrative authority, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws, export control laws, and all laws regarding anti-discrimination, anti-harassment, and equal employment opportunity in hiring and employment practice. In 2021, our master service agreement for vendors also began specifically requiring compliance with anti-slavery and human trafficking laws. Since February 2021, all new vendors that have been presented with the revised agreement have agreed to its expanded scope.”
