Supply Source Options supports fundamental principles of human rights across all lines of business and in every region of the world in which we operate. Our respect for the protection and preservation of human rights is guided by the principles set forth in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Relationships with our employees, clients, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate, are intended to reflect the principles, policies, codes, and accords set forth and referred to in this Human Rights Statement. Our conviction with respect to responsible, honest, and ethical behavior informs our Code of Conduct, and the character of our company is defined by the personal integrity and honesty of our employees.
While Supply Source recognizes that it is the responsibility of each client and supplier to define its own policy and approach to the issue of human rights, we believe such relationships provide an opportunity for the development of best practices relating to the promotion of human rights. In our client relationships we seek to incorporate respect for human rights and demonstrate a commitment to fundamental principles of human rights through our own behavior. We seek to engage with suppliers whose values and business principles are consistent with our own and through our procurement policies and standards seek to encourage behavior by our suppliers that is consistent with the principles set forth in this Human Rights Statement.
