"Corning is committed to a strategic, integrated and socially responsible supply chain – one that reflects our seven Values, all the time, all around the world. This means not only living our Values ourselves, but holding our suppliers accountable to do the same. Our Values are embedded in our Supplier Code of Conduct – enforcement of the Code is of utmost importance and we proactively leverage tools and processes to manage our suppliers, holding them to the highest degree of ethical and socially responsible standards. We work to ensure compliance to all laws and regulations, with particular focus on those which seek to put an end to forced labor and human trafficking, and we continuously look for ways to expand the scope of our efforts to the benefit of all involved."
Corning fully expects our suppliers to uphold fundamental human rights. To that end, Corning has implemented policies related to forced labor, human trafficking and responsible minerals (including conflict minerals) and to the protection of the health and safety of workers. Our goal for ourselves, and our suppliers, is to be good corporate citizens in the communities in which we operate.
We are committed to reducing the impact of our supply chain on the environment through oversight of, and collaboration with, our supply partners. We focus on reducing our own carbon footprint and that of our suppliers by advancing energy saving and waste reduction policies throughout the supply chain.
Corning provides corporate oversight for supply chain social responsibility through corporate officers, such as the Senior Vice President, Global Supply Chain, as well as other key leaders and corporate councils. The Corporate Relations Committee Charter has oversight for sustainability, supply chain and human rights. To influence, policy, measure and document progress, and share best practices, Corning actively participates in key international organizations.
Corning employs robust systems and processes to ensure accountability and compliance throughout our supply chain. Accountability begins with a rigorous onboard process, followed by stringent due diligence throughout the entire contract lifecycle by our supply chain professionals, which allows for early risk identification and mitigation.
Our supplier policies, standards and guidelines support the delivery of responsibly sourced, world-class products. Supply chain partners have access to the Supplier Code of Conduct, Statement on Human Trafficking, Conflict Minerals policy, as well as, other key legal and onboarding documents, and processes which outline our expectations of suppliers.
Our supplier code of conduct sets the standard for how Corning and its supplier partners around the world work together to develop and deliver products and services responsibly.
