Mattel response to IGLHR report on Dongguan Zhenyang Toy factory
Mattel has for many years taken steps to ensure adequate working conditions at its owned and operated and supplier sites. While the Institute for Global Labor and Human Rights report noted in your email implies Mattel brands are currently produced at Tai Nam Industrial Co., Ltd., in fact this is a previous supplier with no production for Mattel in nearly 4 years. Please note that Mattel ceased business with the Tai Nam in May 2012 due to business reasons.
Thank you for the opportunity to respond and address the inaccuracies noted in your report. You can learn more about Mattel’s Citizenship efforts by visiting our corporate website, which includes recently updated information on our programs and progress, including our recently updated Responsible Supply Chain Standards: http://citizenship.mattel.com/responsible-supply-chain/ .
