The importance we place on maintaining high ethical and corporate social responsibility is reflected in our commitment to the labor and human rights of our employees. Our codes, standards, programs, and audit procedures are built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work must reflect the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct and our employees are treated with respect and dignity.
NXP is responsible for providing a work environment in which ethics, integrity, and trustworthiness are accepted and shared, not just among ourselves but with all our stakeholders, including the communities in which we operate and work. We support the aim of the International Labor Organization (ILO) to arrive at universally accepted labor standards and have therefore adopted internal policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines with respect to the topics discussed below.
NXP became an Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) member in April 2014. NXP fully supports the vision and goals of the EICC. The requirements from the EICC Code of Conduct are either part of NXP's own Code of Conduct or have been included in NXP policies, standards, and procedures. NXP also commits to apply similar requirements to its suppliers, through the NXP Supplier Code of Conduct, and to monitor the application of the Supplier Code of Conduct to the best of its ability.
We have specific standards in place regarding labor and human rights. These standards are to be strictly followed by NXP and all NXP suppliers, such as external manufacturing partners, direct material suppliers, tools and machines suppliers as well as suppliers of logistics and packaging services, and onsite service providers and are thoroughly tested during our audits.
