The company has championed a number of anti-trafficking causes and statements, including the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, the CGF Social Resolution on Forced Labor, and the International Labor Organization core standards on forced labor, child labor, freedom of association and discrimination. SC Johnson also supports the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 and the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015, which was adopted in an effort to prevent and eliminate slavery and human trafficking from global supply chains by increasing transparency.
