Beachbody is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles. As part of that commitment, Beachbody requires the highest standard of business conduct in its relationship with its customer, suppliers, and others and strives to conduct its business in accordance with the highest standards of business ethics. According to the International Labour Organization, an estimated 21 million people worldwide, including children, are victims of forced labor. Everyone has a responsibility to work towards ending these labor conditions. Beachbody is committed to conducting its business in a manner that ensures the absence of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain.
In addition to Beachbody’s commitment described above, the United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act 2015, requires many manufacturers and other companies who transact business in the United Kingdom to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour (“Slavery”) as well as human trafficking from their supply chains and in their own businesses.
BEACHBODY’S POLICIES IN RELATION TO SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Beachbody expects and requires that each of its suppliers ("Suppliers") conduct business in a lawful and ethical manner including business practices that prevent or eliminate Slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain. Beachbody requires its Suppliers to comply with the terms of Beachbody's Supplier Code of Conduct (the "Code"). The Code specifically forbids the use of slave, forced, or involuntary labor of any kind, including unlawful child labor and prohibits Suppliers from maintaining supply chains that engage in human trafficking.
DUE DILIGENCE; ASSESSING AND MANAGING RISK
While the large majority of Beachbody’s supply chain is not at risk of Slavery and human trafficking taking place, Beachbody nevertheless takes steps to assess and manage any risk. For example, Beachbody identifies and utilizes Suppliers who share Beachbody's commitment to ensure the absence of Slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain. Suppliers must also ensure that the Code is observed by Suppliers' subcontractors, business associates, or employees. While compliance with the Code is self-certifying, Beachbody reserves the right for itself or through third party auditors, to conduct, or have conducted on its behalf, unannounced or announced audits of production facilities and business practices to monitor Suppliers' commitments. In fact, most Suppliers are audited at least every two years by a third-party auditor. During the audits, the auditor checks to make sure, among other practices, that no child labor is employed; employees are given proper wages for their work; potable drinking water is provided; where appropriate, employees are provided with proper personal protective equipment; employees are scheduled to work only the required daily hours; and if dormitories are provided, that the living conditions in such dormitories are acceptable. The auditors also check the morale of the employees. Beachbody itself audits its other Suppliers. Suppliers that fail to meet Beachbody's standards will be terminated from Beachbody’s supply chain.
TRAINING & ACCOUNTABILITY
Beachbody is committed to implementing and maintaining ongoing training of its employees and management on Slavery and human trafficking to identify and mitigate these risks in its supply chains. Beachbody also maintains internal accountability standards and procedures for employees or contractors failing to meet company standards regarding Slavery and trafficking.
SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
By accepting purchase orders from Beachbody, each Supplier will agree to be bound by our Code of Conduct. Among other assurances, the Code requires Suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the product comply with the laws regarding Slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. Other requirements include complying with environmental laws and regulations and applicable anti-bribery laws. In addition, the Code provides a phone number and email for reporting any violations (confidentially and in the local language). For more information on Beachbody's Code, click here.
Beachbody reserves the right to amend this disclosure at any time without notice.
