Transparency statement

Our insurance company slavery and human trafficking statement

This Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement ("Statement") is for the financial year January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2021. It covers the activities of Allstate and describes the steps Allstate has already taken and those that we will take this Financial Year to uphold a zero-tolerance policy towards slavery and human trafficking within any part of Allstate's business or in any part of Allstate's supply chain.

Our structure, business and supply chains

The Allstate Corporation (parent company to Allstate) is the largest publicly held personal lines property and casualty insurer in America, serving more than 16 million households. Founded in 1931, Allstate has been dedicated to protecting our customers from life's uncertainties and preparing them for the future for more than 85 years. Allstate became a publicly traded company in 1993 and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol ALL.

Allstate's home office is located in Northbrook, Illinois. Allstate's affiliated companies are located in the United States, Canada, Northern Ireland, England and India. Allstate's supply chain is primarily comprised of organizations within the United States.

Allstate's supply chains are limited due to the nature of our business. We are not a producer, manufacturer or retailer of physical goods and have no supply chain in relation to such activities.

Some of our greatest accomplishments include:

  • For the 4th time, Allstate was named as a 2017 World's Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute.
  • Allstate is one of only 130 companies representing more than 50 sectors worldwide to receive the World's Most Ethical Companies designation.
  • Allstate received the Corporate Secretary 2016 Corporate Governance Award for Best Compliance and Ethics Program for a large cap company.

Statement on slavery and human trafficking (The "Statement")

Allstate respects individual human rights and insists that our business partners do the same. It goes against everything we stand for to ignore our corporate obligation in any jurisdiction or to knowingly contribute in some way to child labor, slavery or human trafficking. Allstate recognizes and embraces its responsibilities relating to human rights, as an employer, purchaser of goods and services, investor and a provider of insurance products and services. By supporting business partners who share our core values and by pushing for fairness and equality wherever we operate around the world, we seek to be a positive influence for workers everywhere. That's what our core values are all about. Allstate suppliers are expected not only to provide safe and sanitary work environments, including rest and eating facilities, but they are also expected to avoid using any form of forced or involuntary labor.

Allstate does not engage in the use of child labor and expects its suppliers to employ workers who meet the minimum age requirements in any location.

Allstate does not permit, condone or otherwise accept any form of slavery and/or human trafficking either by its employees, suppliers, agents or other entities with whom Allstate does business. Allstate is committed to preventing any form of slavery and/or human trafficking in its own activities and those of its suppliers.

Due diligence process

Allstate reinforces its commitment to prevent slavery and/or human trafficking from taking place within our business or supply chain through the following actions:

  1. Incorporates affirmations against human trafficking, forced labor, and child labor, similar and consistent with this Statement, into the Allstate Family of Companies Global Code of Business Conduct as well as the Supplier Code of Ethics.
  2. Complies with all local and international labor laws where we do business and operate, often going above and beyond their requirements.
  3. Performs due diligence on its existing business partners and will do so with future potential business partners to ensure suppliers share our approach to human rights and working conditions.
  4. Expects a safe and healthy work environment. We expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable safety and health laws and regulations in the countries in which they operate.
  5. Requires employees to complete an annual compliance confirmation to the Global Code of Business Conduct, both as a new employee and annually thereafter.
  6. Provides a telephone hotline and electronic reporting mechanism, including an anonymous option to every employee in order to report any concern. Allstate also has a strict anti-retaliation policy to protect employees who report a concern.

How we assess and manage supply chain risk

Allstate's Sourcing and Procurement Solutions department conducts careful due diligence to ensure that there is no apparent risk of slavery and/or human trafficking. We form partnerships only with reputable suppliers that do not engage in any form of slavery and/or human trafficking.

Certain top Allstate and Arity suppliers will be sent an awareness letter on this Statement, including a request to complete the Modern Slavery Questionnaire. This questionnaire is intended to enhance our understanding of our supply chain, including key supply chain suppliers, subcontractors, distributors, and equipment and service providers.

All such suppliers who are or want to be a business partner to Allstate are expected to adhere to the requirements of the Supplier Code of Ethics, which incorporates the terms and philosophies of this Statement. Allstate suppliers are prohibited from subcontracting services to a third party without Allstate's prior knowledge, due diligence and consent.
