CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT

 

California law requires Raytheon Technologies Corporation to disclose its activities regarding monitoring its supply chains to prevent human trafficking and slavery. Click here for this disclosure.

 

Section 24 of Raytheon Technologies Corporation’s Code of Ethics states:

 

“Raytheon Technologies is committed to good citizenship and believes that engagement with others improves the human condition. For our employees worldwide, Raytheon Technologies assures safe and healthy work environments, based on the more stringent of U.S. standards, local standards, or Raytheon Technologies policies. Raytheon Technologies does not use child labor or forced labor. For our communities worldwide, Raytheon Technologies works to protect the environment, maximize the efficiencies of our products, and reduce wastes, emissions, energy consumption, and the use of materials of concern. As affirmed in other sections of the Code, Raytheon Technologies obeys the law, does not discriminate in personnel practices, and does not engage in corrupt practices. In addition to its own commitments, Raytheon Technologies expects direct suppliers to adopt suitable codes of business conduct. See Raytheon Technologies's policy entitled "Corporate Citizenship."

Raytheon Technologies’s “Corporate Citizenship” policy requires direct suppliers to adopt a suitable code of business conduct that specifically addresses “fair employment practices, including prohibitions on harassment, bullying, and discrimination, use of child or forced labor, or trafficking in persons for whatever purpose.”

As described above, Raytheon Technologies addresses labor standards in its Code of Ethics, and expects its officers, employees and others to report actual or alleged failures to meet the Code’s standards. An annual certification required of all salaried employees worldwide includes a requirement to certify adherence to Raytheon Technologies's Code.

 

Raytheon Technologies makes training available to company management, employees, and certain third parties regarding human trafficking and slavery issues, including training with respect to recognizing and mitigating risks within the supply chain. Those with direct responsibility for supply chain management are required to take this training.

Raytheon Technologies has robust supplier selection and administration criteria that it expects its direct suppliers to adhere to; however, Raytheon Technologies does not verify or audit its product supply chains specifically to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery, nor does it require its direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into its product comply with laws regarding slavery and human trafficking in the country or countries in which they are doing business.
