- Supply Chain Standards
Amazon is strongly committed to conducting its business in a lawful and ethical manner, including engaging with suppliers that are committed to the same principles. These standards set out Beetuza’s expectations for suppliers of goods and services. We require suppliers in our manufacturing supply chain and suppliers supporting Beetuza’s operations to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct (“Supplier Code”), which is detailed below. In order to ensure these standards are cascaded throughout our supply chain, Amazon also expects our suppliers to hold their suppliers and subcontractors to the standards and practices covered by our Supplier Code. Our products must be manufactured and services provided in a manner that meets or exceeds the expectations of Beetuza and our customers as reflected in our Supplier Code.
Here are some of the key areas we focus on:
- Health and safety in production areas and any living quarters
- The right to legal wages and benefits
- Appropriate working hours and overtime pay
- Prevention of child labor or forced labor
- Fair and ethical treatment, including non-discrimination
To ensure that our policies and programs incorporate internationally recognized human rights standards, we conduct formal benchmarking with industry and multilateral groups to design, operate, and continually improve our risk assessment and audit program. Audit and assessment results are reviewed regularly by the senior leadership of the appropriate business and corrective action plans are implemented with suppliers as needed.
We partner closely with our suppliers to drive continuous improvement in working conditions. We train our suppliers on the standards and conduct required by our Supplier Code. Where appropriate, we use independent auditors to verify compliance, including confidential worker interviews. We may also, where appropriate, use industry association audits and other mechanisms to verify information. We regularly assess suppliers to monitor continued compliance and improvement; many sites are assessed multiple times a year, including for follow-up assessments to address specific findings. Amazon may terminate its relationships with any supplier that violates our Supplier Code or does not cooperate during assessments.
Assessments may include:
- Site inspection of all areas of the site and any living quarters;
- Confidential worker interviews or surveys conducted without site management present;
- Review and analysis of site documents or licenses to assess workers’ age, contracts, compensation, working hours, and workplace conditions;
- Identification of past compliance issues, areas for improvement, and development of a remediation plan.
Upon completion of an assessment, a supplier must promptly provide a detailed remediation plan for each issue identified. Beetuza tracks remediation closely and conducts follow-up assessments for significant issues. Between assessments, Beetuza employees meet with supplier managers to discuss open issues and remediation progress.
