Netafim is committed to lawful and ethical business practices that demonstrate our core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, and commitment to our employees and our customers. Our sense of corporate citizenship encompasses not only the state of California, where this Netafim subsidiary is located but also on a much larger global scale. It is with this greater sense of scope that we are developing policies and practices that support the eradication of slavery and human trafficking.

  • Netafim expects its vendors, distributors, and business partners to adhere to the same high standards of ethical and legal conduct. We are instituting an approval process that will include self-verification of the vendor’s compliance with anti-slavery and human trafficking regulations.
  • Each of our vendors will also be required to certify that any materials incorporated into the products they supply to Netafim, do comply with applicable laws regarding slavery and human trafficking.
  • Netafim wants to ensure that its managers and employees, in particular, those with direct responsibility for its supply chain, better understand how to evaluate and identify risk in this area. We will be developing and implementing training that will broaden this awareness, and provide knowledge of how to help mitigate such risks.

Netafim does not currently conduct audits of its vendors to monitor their ongoing compliance with Netafim’s policies and standards. Once these programs are fully developed, however, Netafim will maintain internal accountability for both our employees and our vendors, and impose penalties on those who violate these standards.
