Our suppliers must be committed to the highest standards of integrity when dealing with C&J
C&J is committed to always conducting our business with the highest degree of integrity and in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We are proud that this commitment extends to how we do business with our suppliers, and we expect all of our suppliers to share and embrace the letter and spirit of C&J’s commitment to integrity.
Business Conduct and Ethics
We understand that our suppliers are independent commercial enterprises, but the business practices and actions of a supplier may significantly impact and/or reflect upon our Company, the C&J brand and our reputation, all of which are invaluable assets. We have worked hard to earn the trust of our stakeholders, and maintaining this trust and the highest reputation for integrity is essential to C&J’s success. Our Corporate Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (also known as the “Code of Conduct”) helps us to do this. We expect our vendors to adhere to C&J’s Code of Conduct while conducting business with and/or on behalf of C&J. Our suppliers must be committed to safe, lawful and ethical business practices to protect the welfare of those with whom we conduct business and those who are affected by our businesses.
Materials Sourcing and Our Commitment to a Conflict-Free Supply Chain
We are committed to the responsible sourcing of materials, parts and products from our suppliers to ensure our procurement practices do not contribute to violence and human-rights abuses. We expect our suppliers to share this commitment.
C&J Energy Services has adopted a Conflict Minerals Policy (available below), which demonstrates our commitment to a conflict-free supply chain. We have established a Conflict Minerals Compliance Program & Due Diligence Framework to ensure compliance with the Conflict Minerals Policy by all C&J Energy Services companies and divisions.
We require the cooperation and support of our suppliers to utilize validated, conflict-free sources of conflict minerals. We expect our suppliers to: 1) source conflict minerals from certified conflict-free smelters (such as those audited through the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition and Global e-Sustainability Initiative Conflict Free Smelter program), 2) perform due diligence on the source and chain of custody of any conflict minerals sourced for and supplied to C&J, and 3) provide evidence of their due-diligence measures to us upon request.
C&J Energy Services’ Conflict Minerals Policy and most recent Conflict Minerals Report (as filed with the SEC) can be found in the Related Resources area to the right.
Suppliers that have any legal or ethical concerns about our employees, operations or business dealings are encouraged to use the C&J Reporting Hotline
We ask our suppliers to help us ensure that the employees of both our companies abide by the C&J Code of Conduct and act lawfully and ethically in our mutual business dealings. C&J relies on our business partners and representatives to raise concerns about potentially illegal or otherwise improper business practices or conduct by any employee or other party conducting business for or on behalf of C&J. We, in turn, pledge to take appropriate action in keeping with our commitment to doing the right thing, and there will be no retaliation for a concern raised in good faith. The Company maintains a confidential, multilingual, anonymous hotline to report concerns regarding illegal or unethical misconduct, such as violations of the Company’s Code. The hotline is available 24/7 by phone (844-472-2438) or online at https://cjenergy.ethicspoint.com. You may also report concerns at Compliance@cjes.com or Attention: General Counsel and Chief Risk & Compliance Officer, 3990 Rogerdale Rd, Houston, Texas, 77042.
