Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P. supports the goals of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 and the importance of human rights.
Calumet’s actions in support of these goals are set forth below. In addition, Calumet is actively reviewing additional actions it can take to support the goal of improving human rights.
1. Product Supply Chain
Calumet perceives value in reviewing its product supply chain to evaluate and address human trafficking and slavery risks. Calumet does not currently have a formal review process. When a formal review process is implemented, Calumet expects to perform the review using internal resources.
2. Supplier Audits
Calumet reserves the right to audit our Suppliers to determine their compliance with all applicable laws, accepted business practices and important human rights. Any audits Calumet may conduct are not necessarily independent and unannounced. In the event that Calumet becomes aware of any inappropriate actions or conditions, Calumet reserves the right to demand that the Supplier take corrective measures.
3. Supplier Certifications
At this time, Calumet does not require direct Suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into their products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business.
4. Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
Calumet’s culture is founded on integrity, honesty, and full compliance with all applicable laws. Our employees are governed by Calumet’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, which details the expectations that Calumet has for its employees. Calumet reserves the right to take disciplinary action, up to and including termination, of any employee who fails to comply with the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics or applicable law.
5. Employee Training
Calumet trains its employees annually on the Calumet Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.
