Ethical Supply Chain Disclosure Statement

Fifthtee is made up of a compassionate group of people dedicated to having a net-positive effect on the world. With the utmost respect for internationally recognized human rights and environmental standards, it is committed to conducting business in a lawful and an ethical manner. Additionally, Fifthtee expects its manufacturing and market vendors, who are considered Business Partners, to share this same commitment.

Since our opening, Fifthttee adopted Ethical Supply Chain Guidelines. These Guidelines set forth the requirements with which Business Partners must comply in order to continue to work with Fifthtee. Pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, Fifthtee discloses as follows.

Verification

Fifthtee engages a qualified third-party to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery involving Business Partners which meet certain risk-related criteria.

Certification

In order to do business with Fifthtee, potential Business Partners must consent to follow our Ethical Supply Chain Guidelines and conduct business in compliance with applicable laws, including, among other things, without child labor, without forced or compulsory labor, without corporal punishment, without discrimination, and in compliance with wage and hour requirements, health and safety, and environmental laws.

Internal Accountability Standards

Fifthtee maintains internal accountability standards. Should Fifthtee find that a Business Partner is out of compliance with the Guidelines, Fifthtee would assess the cause of the non-compliance and develop an action plan to assure future compliance. Fifthtee will help Business Partners correct problems when they are found and build management systems that prevent problems from reoccurring. By working with Business Partners in this way, Fifthtee can improve the lives of people who work for these Partners. However, should a Business Partner fail to comply with a remediation plan, or should a Business Partner commit a significant breach of the Guidelines, Fifthtee may terminate its business relationship with the Partner.

Training

Fifthtee employees who are responsible for supply chain management receive training to further develop their ability to identify and evaluate risks in the supply chain. This internal education of key staff sets Fifthtee foundation for fulfilling its commitment to having a net-positive effect on the world, starting from the inside out.

Thank you for supporting Fifthtee efforts on this important issue, and please stay tuned for ongoing updates.
