    FCAD and our subsidiaries are committed to legal compliance wherever it conducts business. We expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws of their country, including laws relating to employment, discrimination, environment, and health and safety. Suppliers who knowingly violate laws or have repeated problems conforming to them will not receive our business. Suppliers who utilize subcontractors/other suppliers are expected to hold them to the same standards.

    Human Rights

    FCAD and our subsidiaries support universal human rights, particularly those of our employees, the communities within which we operate, and the parties with whom we do business. In our business award decisions, we will continue to place substantial value upon incumbent and potential suppliers who consistently respect basic human rights.

    Improper Payments to Government Officials

    The Company prohibits improper payments to government officials. Government officials include government employees (including employees at government-controlled or owned entities, such as hospitals, energy and media outlets in certain countries), elected officials, political party officials, or candidates for public office or for a political party. Improper payments are direct or indirect (e.g., through third parties) payments, whether in cash or in other things of value (such as lavish entertainment, contributions, travel, gifts, etc.), to a government official in order to influence acts or decisions, to receive special treatment or personal gain, or to obtain or retain business. We prohibit suppliers from making improper payments to government officials with respect to FCAD and our subsidiaries business.

    Commercial Bribery

    Commercial bribery is illegal and subject to criminal penalties in many countries. Any personal payment or bribe to individuals employed by FCAD and our subsidiaries’ customers or suppliers, or receipt of a bribe or personal payment by FCAD and our subsidiaries employees is strictly prohibited. Even in locations where such activity may not, technically speaking, be illegal, it is absolutely prohibited by Company policy. FCAD and our subsidiaries competition for business is conducted fairly and on the merits of our products and services.

    Employment Practices

    FCAD and our subsidiaries utilize fair employment practices, as well as strive to provide a safe, healthful and productive work environment for its employees. The Company respects employees’ right to freedom of association, third party consultation and collective bargaining where allowed by law. The Company expects suppliers to uphold the same standards and specifically…

    Child Labor and Forced Labor

    FCAD and our subsidiaries do not use child* or forced labor in any of our global operations or facilities, and we expect suppliers or contractors with whom we do business to uphold the same standards. More specifically, we will not conduct business with suppliers employing child, prison, indentured or bonded labor, or using corporal punishment or other forms of mental and physical coercion as a form of discipline.
    * In the absence of any national or local law, we will define “child” as less than 15 years of age. If local minimum age law is set below 15 years of age, but is in accordance with developing country exceptions under International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 138, the lower age will apply.

    Working Conditions

    FCAD and our subsidiaries expect suppliers to conduct their business without unacceptable worker treatment such as harassment, discrimination, physical or mental punishment, or other forms of abuse.

    Wage and Hour Practices

    FCAD and our subsidiaries pay employees a competitive wage, as benchmarked with other leading companies. Consistent with our principle of valuing personal mastery, we reward employees for improving their skills and capabilities. At a minimum, we expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable wage and hour laws, and rules and regulations, including minimum wage, overtime and maximum hours.

    Health and Safety

    FCAD and our subsidiaries are committed to having safe and healthy operations to protect the life and health of its employees and the community surrounding its operations, to protect its assets, to ensure business continuity and to engender public trust. We expect suppliers to provide a safe work environment, to prevent accidents and injury, and to minimize exposure to health risks.

    Environment

    FCAD and our subsidiaries continually strive to improve the environmental quality of our operations and our products. We seek to do business with suppliers who share our concerns for and commitment to preserving the environment. At a minimum, suppliers must meet all current, applicable environmental rules, regulations and laws in their countries.

    Data Privacy

    FCAD and our subsidiaries believe in protecting the privacy of personal information. We strive to treat information provided by an individual as that individual’s, which has been entrusted to FCAD and our subsidiaries. We inform people about the use and handling of data they provide us. We follow all pertinent data privacy laws and regulations. When other companies are handling personally identifiable data as our agents, we require them to abide by our privacy practices as they relate to the data.

    Ethical Treatment of Suppliers

    Our suppliers are valued partners in the success of our business. Our relationships with them must be based on honesty and fairness. Suppliers are selected on a competitive basis based on total value, which includes quality, service, technology, and price. Terms and conditions defining our relationship with suppliers are communicated early in the supplier selection process and agreements to such terms and conditions, or any acceptable modifications, are reached before work begins. Included in these standard terms and conditions are FCAD and our subsidiaries’ policies regarding payment terms, confidentiality, the use of intellectual property, and labor practice expectations.

    Gifts, Entertainment and Gratuities

    We conduct our business on the basis of the superior value of goods and services we buy and sell. Our policy on gifts, entertainment and gratuities is designed to preserve and maintain FCAD’s reputation as a global enterprise that acts with integrity and bases decisions only on legitimate business considerations. Receiving gifts, entertainment or other gratuities from people with whom we do business is generally not acceptable, because doing so could imply an obligation on the part of the Company and potentially pose a conflict of interest.

    In addition to embracing the Company’s Purpose, Values and Principles, our Purchases people are guided by five global principles for strategic sourcing. These five principles establish a foundation for our discipline and serve as guidelines in our daily activities as we interact with external suppliers.

    Best Total Value

    Honest, Ethical, and Fair Dealings

    Externally-Linked Supply Solutions

    Competition and Collaboration

    Supplier Incumbency

     

    Best Total Value

    We make sourcing decisions on the basis of best total value offered to supply our requirements for goods and services. Best total value is driven by business needs and includes a number of components that include total cost of ownership, quality of goods or services performed, supplier responsiveness and account service, speed or time-to-market, minority/women ownership, localized supply, and supplier willingness to share risk/provide resources.

    Honest, Ethical, and Fair Dealings

    We treat all suppliers with respect and deal with them honestly, ethically, and fairly. We conduct business in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations wherever we operate. We believe that buyers and suppliers optimize their working relationship when there is a foundation of trust. By treating suppliers and potential suppliers honestly, ethically and fairly, we do our part in building that foundation, and expect that the supplier will do likewise. We do this not only because we believe it is right, but also because it makes working with FCAD and our subsidiaries attractive to current and potential suppliers.

    Externally-Linked Supply Solutions

    We treat all suppliers with respect and deal with them honestly, ethically, and fairly. We conduct business in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations wherever we operate. We believe that buyers and suppliers optimize their working relationship when there is a foundation of trust. By treating suppliers and potential suppliers honestly, ethically and fairly, we do our part in building that foundation, and expect that the supplier will do likewise. We do this not only because we believe it is right, but also because it makes working with FCAD and our subsidiaries attractive to current and potential suppliers.

    Competition and Collaboration

    We apply the strategic use of competition, collaboration or a blend of the two in our approach towards managing our supplier relationships. The Company has a long-held belief that competition encourages the innovation and efficiency from our supply base that ultimately delivers optimum value over the long-term. FCAD and our subsidiaries also believe that we must collaborate with suppliers to access and engage their core competencies, capabilities, and resources to support us in creating value for our consumers and customers. The choice to emphasize competition or collaboration or blend the two is driven by business circumstances, supply market dynamics, supplier capability, supplier compatibility with FCAD and our subsidiaries, and the level of interdependency necessary between FCAD and the supplier to deliver best value.

    Supplier Incumbency

    We seek to balance stability in our supply base and orderly shifts of business with the need to seek out new suppliers who offer superior value. We prefer ongoing relationships with incumbent suppliers because we believe they deliver lower long-term costs and higher value to our business. Therefore, to win our business, new suppliers must provide meaningfully better total value than the incumbent. Incumbency is applied to each specific situation where a number of elements are considered that includes FCAD business needs, past performance and future potential of a supplier, impact of business shifts on overall marketplace competitiveness and long-term buyer/supplier relationships, and costs for start-up, qualification, and/or shut-down.
