California Supply Chains Act
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure
Human trafficking and slavery continue to plague many places throughout the world, and Walter’s Automotive supports efforts to eliminate such practices. Given that Walter’s Automotive is franchised to sell Mercedes-Benz brand automobiles and parts that we purchase from Daimler/MBUSA, we rely upon the efforts of the automaker to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from the supply chain. Accordingly:
We do not engage in verification of our product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery.
We do not conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate their compliance with company standards for trafficking and slavery in supply chains.
We do not require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the countries in which they are doing business.
We do not maintain internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding slavery and trafficking.
We do not provide company employees and management with training on human trafficking and slavery or mitigating risks within the supply chains of products.
Since the vast majority of goods and services we sell are from Daimler/MBUSA, only Daimler/MBUSA is in a position to perform these tasks, and we encourage you to contact Daimler/MBUSA at 1-800-FOR-MERCEDES (1-800-367-6372).
