          Details of monitoring: Using third party verification
          "We work to ensure supplier traceability by conducting supplier assessments and audits. Our suppliers assess themselves using third-party self-assessment tools (e.g., Sedex, EcoVadis) and/or our original self-assessment questionnaire (SAQ)...In 2019, we have carried out risk assessments for the primary suppliers at the headquarters and EMEA. At the headquarter, all 271 companies that have been in business in 2019, have had their ethical information including but not limited to corporate activities related to compliance, the environment, human rights, and occupational safety evaluated. In addition, in EMEA, 85 suppliers were evaluated by EcoVadis. Based on the results of our assessment, we classify suppliers into four categories and request corrective action from those deemed to be high risk. In 2019, 49 suppliers fell into the high-risk category, and for those suppliers that do business with the headquarters, we provided a direct explanation of the issues and the reasons for the issues, and requested that they be corrected."
