Modern Slavery Act Statement
We, Karmic’s Karma shop, (“Karmic,” “we,” or “us”), are a part of the industry that can educate consumers on how to purchase goods produced by companies that responsibly manage their supply chains. Karmic is committed to ensuring ethical and fair-labor practices within our own operations and we seek and expect from our suppliers and distributors to do the same.
The structure of our organization, business, and supply chains
Karmic contracts print-on-demand order fulfillment and warehousing companies with teams of more than 1,800+ professionals working in North America and Europe, with partners in Japan, Australia, and Brazil. We also contract a wide variety of various suppliers located in the US, the EU, Canada and other countries and regions to provide us with the materials for our designs.
Karmic policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking
When we partner with suppliers and distributors, we ask that the supplier as well as its subcontractors will comply with all applicable laws that prohibit slavery and human trafficking. Many of our suppliers have also drafted a Supplier Code of Conduct that intends to set forth their standards and expectations with respect to key areas of corporate responsibility, including a requirement for our suppliers not to support forced labor and not to collaborate with organizations that use illegal employment practices.
Due diligence processes
Although Karmic does not currently provide specialized training on slavery and human trafficking to its staff working with POD chains, we require that all employees engaged in the sourcing process comply with our policies which prohibit slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain. Within our own internal operations, a part of our initiative to mitigate the risks for slavery and human trafficking is the implementation of internal policies which include Whistleblower, Anti-bribery, and Health and Safety policies.
Currently, Karmic does not conduct independent audits or unannounced inspections to our direct suppliers.
