SUPPLY CHAIN VERIFICATION

DIRECT SUPPLIERS' CERTIFICATION OF MATERIALS

Hawthorne Gardening Company is working on mapping and understanding impacts further up the supply chain, to develop standards for upstream suppliers of contracted manufacturers.


STANDARDS FOR COMPLIANCE

If a contracted factory is found to violate laws or Hawthorne Gardening Company expectations, it is responsible for improving performance. If the factory fails to make progress, they are subject to review and sanctions, including potential termination.
