At CBD Botanix, we are committed to operating with integrity, transparency, and ethical responsibility in all aspects of our business, including supply chain management. We strongly condemn modern slavery and human trafficking practices in any form and are dedicated to upholding human rights, both within our organization and throughout our supply chain.
Our Approach to Modern Slavery:
- Policies and Procedures: We have established robust policies and procedures to prevent and address modern slavery and human trafficking. These policies are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure their effectiveness and alignment with best practices.
- Supplier Due Diligence: We conduct thorough due diligence when partnering with suppliers, contractors, and business partners. We assess their commitment to ethical practices, human rights, and compliance with local and international laws.
- Supplier Code of Conduct: We expect all our suppliers to adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct, which explicitly prohibits the use of forced labor, child labor, and any other form of modern slavery. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure they understand and comply with these standards.
- Training and Awareness: We provide training and awareness programs to our employees and key stakeholders to recognize and report any signs of modern slavery or human trafficking. We encourage a culture of vigilance and responsibility.
- Reporting Mechanism: We have established a confidential and accessible reporting mechanism for employees and stakeholders to raise concerns about modern slavery or any unethical practices. We take all reports seriously and ensure appropriate actions are taken.
- Continuous Improvement: We are committed to continuously improving our practices and supply chain transparency. We actively engage with industry initiatives and collaborate with stakeholders to address modern slavery challenges.
Our Supply Chain:

While CBD Botanix does not directly manufacture or distribute physical products, we are mindful of our role in influencing ethical practices within the CBD industry. Therefore, we work diligently to ensure that our suppliers and partners share our commitment to human rights and ethical conduct.
At CBD Botanix, we recognize that combating modern slavery is an ongoing effort. We will continue to strengthen our practices, collaborate with industry partners, and take a proactive approach to eliminate any risks of modern slavery within our operations and supply chain.
