Protection of Human Rights
THOR respects and values human rights of all individuals, including the rights of minority groups and the rights of women, regardless of whether they are THOR team members, employed by members of our supply chain, members of our communities or other stake holders.
Child Labor, Forced Labor, Slavery, Human Trafficking
We are committed to instituting company policies to further the abolishment and prevention of all forms of: slavery, human trafficking, child labor and forced labor; all forms of child exploitation; and all forms of child endangerment.
THOR prohibits the use of child labor and is committed to protecting children from economic exploitation; work that may be dangerous to their health, safety or morals; and work that hinders their development or impedes their access to education. (A child is defined as any person who is under the age for the completion of compulsory education in the country in which business is conducted, or, if higher, under the age of 15).
THOR will not knowingly purchase goods manufactured as a result of slavery, human trafficking, or forced labor in any form (including, but not limited to, indentured labor, prison labor, debt bondage, forced and compulsory labor, and the use of children in armed conflict).
