Business Conduct Guidelines
Integrity guides our conduct towards our shareholders, business partners, colleagues, and the general public. This basic statement is the foundation of the Business Conduct Guidelines.
To a substantial degree, our company's public image is determined by our behavior and by the way each of us presents and conducts himself or herself. We all share the responsibility for having our company meet its Corporate Social Responsibility worldwide. The Business Conduct Guidelines are our charter. Read more...
The ten principles of the Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption are derived from the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” the “International Labor Organization's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work,” the “Rio Declaration on Environment and Development,” and the “United Nations Convention Against Corruption.“
Today, companies, international labor, and civil society organizations from all over the world are engaged in the international initiative; the Global Compact. Infineon Technologies joined the Global Compact in 2004. Please see Infineon's UN Communication on Progress
Principles of Purchasing
We at Infineon Technologies adhere ourselves to the international and local laws and respect different cultural practices. We expect from our suppliers to do the same as well as to embrace, support and to be committed to the principles of the UN Global Compact Initiative.
In 2011 we have designed new Principles of Purchasing, which are aligned with Infineon Technologies Business Conduct Guidelines, to help our suppliers meeting the ethical and legal challenges in their day-to-day work.
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect. This law requires large retailers and manufacturers doing business in the state of California and having annual gross worldwide sales of over $100 million dollars to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain.
As reflected in our commitment to the United Nations Global Compact we respect and observe the internationally proclaimed human rights, including the rights to personal dignity and privacy. As set forth in our Business Conduct Guidelines as well as in our Principles of Purchasing, we shall not condone human rights abuses, neither in the form of direct nor beneficial nor silent complicity and we are against any form of forced labor. We strictly oppose any form of human trafficking and slavery. Read more
