供應鏈需知Supply Chain Disclosure

一、禁止餽贈 No Gratuities

Costco絕對禁止員工接受與Costco目前及過去有業務往來之供應廠商、會員/客戶或服務機構的餽贈,也禁止接受可能是未來業務相關之合作對象的餽贈。所謂餽贈是指禮品、金錢、旅行、餐飲、住宿之招待或特別好處。Costco政策同時更禁止Costco員工提供餽贈。
請點選【禁止饋贈政策No Gratuity Policy】參閱完整準則內容

Costco employees cannot accept gratuities from suppliers, members/customers, or service agencies with whom Costco presently does business, has done business with in the past, or any firm that may be considered for future business. Gratuities are interpreted to include gifts, moneys, trips, meals, lodging or special favors. Costco Policy also restricts giving of gratuities by Costco employees.
Please refer to the 【No Gratuity Policy】for details.

二、好市多關於人口販運及禁奴之聲明事項 Costco Disclosure Regarding Human Trafficking and Anti-Slavery

Costco Wholesale Corporation之全球供應商行為準則(「行為準則」)嚴禁供應鏈中有任何侵害人權之情形。本「行為準則」涵蓋如人口販運、生理上之虐待、限制行動自由、扣留護照及其他文件、不安全之工作環境、未給足薪金、過度或強制加班、非法之童工以及許多其他關於勞工福利事項之處理原則。 一旦簽署好市多供應商合約,供應商即保證與其分包商共同遵守本「行為準則」。好市多得確認及接受內容等同於本「行為準則」之供應商準則。

為評估合規情況,好市多將就選定供應商之某些部門安排稽核,並把重點放在生產自有品牌產品以及產品或原產地國家風險升高之供應商。稽核應由專門查核企業社會責任之獨立第三方人員進行。好市多一方面雖保留進行無預警稽核之權利,但實際操作上,還是會基於安全疑慮以及讓供應商蒐集在稽核過程中應審閱之資料而給予最低限度之通知。分包商通常不在好市多稽核範圍內。

不幸的是違反本「行為準則」之情形仍會發生。好市多發見違規事件時將依違規事件之性質及範圍採取對應之方式。特定違規事件會導致好市多採取立即之補正措施,包括終止商業關係。好市多得依實際情況選擇給予供應商合理之時間以建立及執行補正計畫。於該等情形下,好市多會於嗣後進行稽核以便監督相關進度。

好市多通常傾向於與供應商共同合作改善本「行為準則」之違規情事,而非立即終止合作關係。終止合作關係未必能補救已經存在之問題,並可能進一步造成仰賴相關聘僱工作之勞工及其家人之生活陷入困頓。然而,若供應商改善違規情事之進展不盡人意,好市多將選擇終止與該供應商間之商業關係。

負責處理與供應商間關係之好市多採購團隊成員將繼續接受實體及線上培訓課程。培訓課程內容包含本「行為準則」以及本「行為準則」對於好市多事業及生產好市多販售商品之勞工們的重要性。好市多鼓勵任何發見違反法律或本「行為準則」之人主動向其主管、好市多「行為準則」合規小組,或透過好市多吹哨人網站(costco.ethicspoint.com)進行通報。

Costco Wholesale Corporation has a global supplier Code of Conduct, which prohibits human rights abuses in our supply chain. Practices such as human trafficking, physical abuse, restricting freedom of movement, confiscation of passports and other documentation, unsafe work environments, failure to pay adequate wages, excessive or forced overtime, illegal child labor, and many other aspects of worker welfare are addressed by the Code. By signing Costco’s supplier agreement, the supplier warrants compliance with the Code, including by its sub-suppliers. We may acknowledge and accept a supplier's code as equivalent to our Code.

To evaluate compliance, we arrange for the audit of certain facilities of selected suppliers, with an emphasis on suppliers of private-label merchandise and suppliers whose product or country of origin poses an increased risk. Audits are performed by independent third-party auditors who specialize in social responsibility audits. While we retain the right to conduct unannounced audits, as a practical matter, some minimum notice is given to comply with security concerns and to allow the supplier to collect records that are reviewed during the audit. Sub-suppliers generally are outside the scope of the audit.

Unfortunately, violations of our Code still occur. When we discover a violation, we respond in a manner commensurate with the nature and extent of the violation. Certain violations may result in immediate remedial action, including termination of the business relationship. Depending on the circumstances, we may allow a supplier reasonable time to develop and implement a plan for remediation. In those instances we conduct follow-up audits to monitor progress.

In general, we prefer working with the supplier to correct Code violations rather than immediately terminating the relationship. Termination is unlikely to correct the underlying issue and may cause further hardship to workers and their families who depend upon the employment. However, if the supplier fails to make satisfactory progress toward improvement, we will cease our business relationship with that supplier.

Members of Costco's buying team who manage a supplier relationship will continue to be provided with in-person and online training. The training covers the Code of Conduct and its importance to our business and to the workers who produce the merchandise we sell. We encourage anyone who is aware of violations of the law or our Code to notify their management, our Code of Conduct Compliance team, or utilize Costco's whistleblower site: costco.ethicspoint.com
