The importance we place on maintaining high ethical and corporate social responsibility is reflected in our commitment to labor and human rights. 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 all 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), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Bill of Human Rights and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights to arrive at universally accepted labor standards and have therefore adopted internal policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines.
NXP became a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), in April 2014, and has continued to be a full member since 2015, demonstrating our full support of the vision and goals of the RBA. The requirements from the RBA 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 NXP standards to our suppliers, through the NXP Supplier Code of Conduct, and to monitor the application of the Supplier Code of Conduct.
We have specific standards in place regarding labor and human rights which is approved by the Social Responsibility board. These standards are to be strictly followed by NXP and all NXP suppliers, which are thoroughly tested during our internal and supplier audits.
