Human rights

CHILD LABOUR
No child works within the Virbac group. As concerns the main suppliers, Virbac’s ethical evaluation questionnaire commits them to respect legislation on child labour. In 2016, none of the suppliers questioned proved to be in default in relation to this criterion. If Virbac identifies a non-compliant supplier, the Group will require compliance by threatening to terminate their contract.
 
FORCED OR COMPULSORY LABOUR
Forced labour does not exist in the Virbac group. Regarding its main suppliers, compliance with the fundamental ILO conventions, including the prohibition of forced labour, is included in all new contracts. In 2016, none of the suppliers questioned proved to be in default in relation to this criterion. If Virbac identifies a non-compliant supplier, the Group will require compliance by threatening to terminate their contract.
 
EVALUATION OF THE RESPECT OF HUMAN RIGHTS BY SUPPLIERS
With each invitation to tender linked directly to an industrial activity, and for the main suppliers (80% of the value of purchases) of raw materials, Virbac conducts a questionnaire evaluating their respect for human rights: age of employees, the existence of a health and safety policy and the absence of discrimination. Since 2015, new framework contracts integrate respect for these standards. In 2016, the evaluation process carried out by Virbac among its new suppliers did not identify any risks in this regard. If Virbac identifies a non-compliant supplier, the Group will require compliance by threatening to terminate their contract.
