CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY ACT
FindingJoy is committed to upholding fair and safe employment and workplace conditions. To achieve this, we build meaningful partnerships with those who share our values, and work to develop sustainable and long-lasting improvements that extend through our supply chain. We believe that a well-managed and healthy supply chain is integral to building a stable, successful business.
Code of Conduct
FindingJoy’s Code of Conduct is communicated to and signed by all our supply chain partners. This Code of Conduct was developed using established international frameworks, including the International Bill of Human Rights and the ILO Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work — such as the Forced Labour Convention (No.29), Abolition of Forced Labour Convention (No.105), Minimum Age Convention (No. 138) and Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention (No. 182) amongst others. In addition, the Code of Conduct draws from the ETI Base Code, recognized as one of the leading frameworks in the global beauty industry.
FindingJoy’s Corporate Responsibility department supports the implementation of our Code of Conduct. Based on a risk analysis of the product supply chain, FindingJoy has or will have researched select factories and countries where priority is placed on monitoring.
Monitoring is carried out by independent specialists and can be announced or unannounced (determined on a case-by-case basis) and will always include interviews with workers. When conditions at a factory do not meet our standards, FindingJoy will work with the factory to improve them by providing a Corrective Action Plan. The factory is then required to demonstrate improvements within the timeframe given, and FindingJoy will provide any support necessary to remediate any identified issues.
Factories are graded according to the severity of the issues. In cases of critical non-compliances and if the factory is either unable or unwilling to make improvements, FindingJoy may decide, as a last resort, to terminate the relationship. However, we will take care to ensure that the exit is responsible and does not adversely impact the workforce.
FindingJoy is conscious that certain employment conditions deeper in supply chains may represent a more significant risk of forced and trafficked labour. Our partners are only permitted to use subcontractors where prior written consent has been provided and the same monitoring process is applied to subcontractors. We ask that all partners confirm that any raw materials used in FindingJoy Products are derived from sources that are compliant with local employment regulations.
Training & Development
FindingJoy is aware that only through developing and empowering our own employees can we effectively implement our values. Therefore, we have developed a training and education program to ensure key employees — particularly those who interact and have relationships with our factories — understand the risks associated with manufacturing offshore and are aware of the systems and processes in place should any issues be identified.
This statement is made pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) and sets out the policies and processes at FindingJoy to prevent the occurrence of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain and other operations.
FindingJoy makes no representation of any kind regarding this Site, Content or any portion thereof, WHICH ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITH ALL FAULTS.
