California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 Disclosure and 2018 Fiscal Year Statement under the Modern Slavery Act 2015
At John Bean Technologies Corporation (JBT), our vision is to be the premier provider of world-class, mission-critical technology solutions for the food processing and air transportation industries. We can only realize our vision if we conduct business in an ethical manner. JBT has in place a strong code of ethical conduct, which is reflected in the One JBT Guide to Ethical Conduct (Guide to Ethics).
We expect our employees and suppliers to adhere to the letter and spirit of the relevant provisions of our Guide to Ethics. JBT’s Supplier Code of Conduct outlines for our suppliers the ethical behavior we seek from our suppliers and expects our suppliers to be in full compliance with all applicable laws. Because we have this expectation, we rely upon our suppliers to do what is necessary to eradicate the use of unethical labor practices in their supply chains.
Accordingly, JBT does not use a third party to evaluate and address the risk of trafficking and forced labor in its supply chains; JBT does not conduct independent, unannounced audits of its suppliers to evaluate their compliance with our expectations for ethical labor practices; and JBT does not require its suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into our products comply with anti-trafficking and forced labor laws. And, although JBT maintains standards and procedures for ensuring that its employees comply with the Guide to Ethics, JBT does not maintain specific standards and procedures for ensuring that its suppliers and contractors comply with JBT’s expectations for ethical labor practices.
Finally, although JBT employees regularly receive training on the Guide to Ethics, JBT does not routinely provide training on trafficking and forced labor issues. This statement is made pursuant to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 and section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018.
