Human Rights Policy

One of the core values of QEP, is our deep respect for Human Rights.

QEP supports international principles aimed at protecting and promoting human rights. QEP supports and respects the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights, making sure QEP is not complicit in human rights abuses:

QEP respects and implements across all QEP companies the international laws, in particular the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions and the UN Global Compact principles.

Human rights are fundamental principles which allow individuals the freedom to lead a dignified and independent life, free from abuse and violations. They are based on rules of human behavior, common across diverse cultures. Where human rights are not adhered to, this can have a significant impact on the performance of our employees, as well as our business.

In furtherance of this policy QEP recognizes the significant human rights issues within the supply chain and our responsibility to work with suppliers and partners to protect the human rights of workers within factories.

Our suppliers are required to adhere to all applicable domestic and international laws in the countries in which they operate including, but not limited to, laws on slavery and human trafficking. We ask our suppliers to reinforce awareness of potential human rights issues inside their own organization as well as in the organizations of their suppliers. QEP also asks its global suppliers to pay wages and maintain benefits in compliance with local law, only employ workers who meet the local minimum age, and employ individuals who are not subject to forced, bonded or involuntary labor.

Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 and the United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act of 2015 require certain businesses, including manufacturers and retailers, to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chain. This statement is intended to provide consumers with information that will allow them to make more informed choices about the products and services they are buying. QEP is therefore disclosing that:

  1. We verify that our primary suppliers are not involved in human trafficking and slavery by regularly surveying those suppliers. We conduct such verifications by our own staff.
  2. We conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate compliance and do so by our own staff.
  3. We ask our direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding slavery/human trafficking of the country or countries in which they do business.
  4. We maintain internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet our standards regarding slavery and trafficking.
  5. We provide employees and management who have direct responsibility for supply chain management training on slavery /trafficking.
