At CBD Hemp Boutique, we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in all aspects of our business, including the prevention of modern slavery and human trafficking. We recognize that modern slavery is a grave violation of human rights, and we have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of forced labor, child labor, or exploitation within our operations and supply chains.
Our Policies and Practices:
- Supplier Code of Conduct: We have established a comprehensive Supplier Code of Conduct that outlines our expectations regarding labor standards, human rights, and ethical business practices. We require all our suppliers and business partners to adhere to these principles and maintain transparency throughout their own supply chains.
- Supplier Due Diligence: We conduct thorough due diligence processes when engaging with suppliers to ensure they share our commitment to eradicating modern slavery. We assess potential suppliers based on their labor practices, working conditions, and compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
- Contractual Obligations: Our contracts with suppliers include explicit provisions prohibiting the use of forced labor, child labor, or any form of human trafficking. These contractual obligations also require suppliers to implement appropriate policies and procedures to prevent and address modern slavery within their own operations.
- Employee Awareness and Training: We provide ongoing training and education to our employees to raise awareness about modern slavery, its indicators, and reporting mechanisms. This helps to ensure that all employees understand their role in identifying and reporting any potential concerns related to modern slavery.
- Whistleblower Policy: We maintain a robust Whistleblower Policy that encourages our employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any suspicions or evidence of modern slavery. We treat all reports with utmost confidentiality and ensure that appropriate actions are taken promptly to address any identified issues.
- Continuous Improvement: We are committed to continuous improvement in our efforts to combat modern slavery. We regularly review and evaluate our policies, practices, and supply chain to identify any potential risks or areas for enhancement. Where necessary, we implement corrective actions and work collaboratively with our suppliers to drive positive change.
Our Future Commitments:
- Collaboration and Partnerships: We actively seek partnerships with industry organizations, NGOs, and other stakeholders to collaborate on initiatives aimed at eradicating modern slavery. By working together, we can leverage collective knowledge and resources to drive meaningful change across the broader industry.
- Supply Chain Transparency: We are dedicated to increasing transparency within our supply chain. We will continue to engage with our suppliers to obtain accurate and up-to-date information regarding their practices, ensuring that they align with our commitment to ethical sourcing and the elimination of modern slavery.
- Reporting and Communication: We will regularly report on our progress and initiatives in combating modern slavery. Through our public communication channels, including our website, annual reports, and stakeholder engagements, we will provide transparent updates on our actions, achievements, and future goals.
- Risk Assessment and Mitigation: We will enhance our risk assessment processes to identify and address any potential risks related to modern slavery. This includes evaluating risks within our supply chain and taking proactive steps to mitigate these risks, such as diversifying our supplier base and conducting regular audits and inspections.

CBD Hemp Boutique is committed to a collaborative and accountable approach in combating modern slavery. We recognize that eradicating this heinous crime requires collective efforts and ongoing diligence.
