Mullican Flooring is dedicated to creating the highest-quality hardwood flooring in the world through environmentally sound manufacturing practices. We strongly support the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor, child exploitation, slavery and human trafficking.
Mullican Flooring and its employees are expected to follow applicable laws, rules and regulations in effect in the countries and jurisdictions in which the company does business. In addition, employees are to conduct business in an ethical manner. The company requires its suppliers, vendors and contractors to do the same. Mullican Flooring depends on its suppliers to ensure they are following applicable laws.
Mullican Flooring occasionally conducts audits and verifications within the supply chain to ensure compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, and ethical conduct. Mullican Flooring generally does not hire third parties to conduct audits or verifications for such purposes.
In addition, Mullican Flooring encourages its suppliers to carry the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), which, among other standards, requires adherence to the protection of workers’ rights and welfare, and safeguarding the basic rights of workers. PEFC also requires certified members to recognize the principle of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC), the UN Declaration on Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, and ILO Convention 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples.
Mullican Flooring routinely evaluates ways it can improve its business operations, including methods to ensure against human trafficking in its supply chain. Inquiries regarding Mullican Flooring’s supply chain management may be addressed to Jennifer Greenwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
