Lincoln Electric is committed to complying with the UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015. To that end, Lincoln is undertaking a review of procedures currently being taken, and to be taken in the future, to ensure there is no slavery or trafficking in its supply chain and its own business. Lincoln is committed to ensuring that our supply chain reflects Lincoln's values and respect for the goals of the Modern Slavery Act. This commitment is codified in Lincoln’s Code of Corporate Ethics and Compliance which applies to all of its companies. Our suppliers must be committed to a workplace that is free from all forms of human trafficking, forced labor and unlawful child labor in their operations. Lincoln is in the process of conducting training for its supply chain team to ensure that they are aware of Lincoln's desire to only purchase from suppliers who do not violate human rights through human trafficking, forced labor and unlawful child labor in their operations. Lincoln intends to remain vigilant in this area and conduct investigations and seek audits of its suppliers where it is warranted.
