Ball

Human Trafficking

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 requires retailers and manufacturers that do business in California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains. Ball Corporation strives to engage suppliers that comply with all applicable laws regarding forced labor and human trafficking. Ball requires suppliers, through our contracts where possible, to operate ethically and within the bounds of all local laws and regulations. Ball fully supports the intent of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010.
  • Ball is verifying, evaluating and addressing supply chain issues related to human trafficking and slavery.
  • Ball does not have a self- or third-party plan for auditing our suppliers to evaluate their compliance with sustainability and social responsibility goals, including those directly related to human trafficking and slavery.
  • Ball developed a compliance document and asks direct suppliers to certify that the materials in their products comply with the laws and regulations of the countries where they are sold, including those related to the prohibition of forced labor and human trafficking.
  • Several Ball policies address noncompliance by employees and vendors working with and for us, such as Ball's human rights policy and Supplier Guiding Principles, which address forced labor and human trafficking.
  • Ball is developing training on supply chain risks related to forced labor and human trafficking for our sourcing, supply chain and other personnel with direct responsibility for supply chain management.
  • Ball strives to achieve high standards of legal and ethical conduct for itself and its business partners, and to ensure compliance with all laws.
