The Code of Conduct outlines standards to ensure that working conditions in the electronics industry supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible.
In the membership commitment letter to the EICC, Chairman of the Océ Corporate Sustainability Forum, Pierre Vincent notes: “As a responsible attitude and sustainable behavior are characteristic for our company, sustainable supply chain management is an essential part of our business. It is our strategy to require our partners and suppliers to adopt the same norms and standards with regard to sustainability as we apply to our own activities. At the same time, we challenge them to inspire us with new ideas.”
Océ commits to progressively align its own operations with the provisions of the EICC code of conduct and to support and encourage its own first-tier suppliers to do the same. Wherever possible, Océ will seek to adopt the EICC approach and tools in practical ways in the spirit of the industry’s common goals.
