RSA supports the goals and efforts of The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, which requires certain retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to provide information regarding their efforts to eliminate or prevent human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and unethical labor conditions in their supply chain. RSA endorses the principles of The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (UK) and the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and is committed to continue and improve RSA’s efforts to identify and mitigate the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking from RSA’s business and supply chains. To this end, RSA provides this statement pursuant to the applicable laws concerning modern slavery, including those mentioned above.
RSA is committed to treating all workers with respect and dignity, ensuring safe working conditions and conducting environmentally responsible and ethical operations. RSA works with confidential information and security services, consequently it upholds the highest standards for integrity, ethics, and trust. Additionally, RSA is bound by the highest standards of the laws and ethics of the jurisdictions applicable to all business dealings.
Verification. RSA generally ensures that the materials purchased from the suppliers have a supply chain that is well-established, in good-standing, and complies with the legal requirements of the jurisdictions in which they operate. RSA believes that its suppliers do not engage in illegal human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and/or unethical labor conditions; however, neither RSA, nor a third party, does any further investigation or evaluation of the supply chains to evaluate such matters.
Audits. RSA expects all of its suppliers to comply with all applicable laws, especially those that require ethical business practices. If RSA suspects that a supplier is engaging in illegal human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and/or unethical labor conditions, RSA may investigate the matter further for evidence. With the exception that RSA may get involved in a supply chain investigation regarding the illegal activities mentioned previously, RSA does not review or audit its suppliers to evaluate their compliance with anti-slavery and anti-human trafficking laws.
Certification. RSA engages in business with well-established and good-standing suppliers that, to our knowledge, comply with the applicable laws of the jurisdictions where they operate. RSA requires that its suppliers self-certify that they follow all applicable laws of the jurisdictions where they operate.
Internal Accountability. RSA and its employees are required to conform to all applicable laws and /or policies of the jurisdictions where business is conducted; internal policies that must be followed include RSA’s Code of Conduct and Ethics. Violations to these policies, including human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and/or unethical labor conditions, may result in disciplinary actions, up to and including termination of employment, or other legal actions as appropriate. RSA also maintains corporate-wide accountability and grievance mechanisms (e.g. the RSA Ethics contact), which are available to both employees and external parties.
Training. Although RSA does not currently provide its employees and management with specific training on slavery and human trafficking, training on RSA’s Code of Conduct and Ethics is conducted for new-hire employees and upon changes to these policies.
