Valspar provides this statement about its obligations under the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010. The Act requires Valspar to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chain.
Valspar expects its suppliers to respect applicable laws and to behave in an ethical manner. While QIP does not presently engage in verification of its product supply chain, audit its suppliers, or require certifications regarding the supplies that it receives, we expect our suppliers to conduct their activities in compliance with all applicable laws including those that require them to treat workers fairly, respect human rights, and provide a safe and healthy work environment.
In coming years, Valspar intends to evaluate the ways that it may reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking in its direct supply chain which may include developing internal accountability standards and providing training to those who have direct responsibility for supply chain management regarding alleviating the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain.
