Supplier Responsibility

Suppliers are critical partners in Corning’s value chain. We expect our suppliers to follow the same principles and laws that we do regarding fair treatment of workers, providing a safe and healthy work environment, and operating in an environmentally responsible manner.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Corning maintains the highest levels of integrity in all of our business relationships. Our Supplier Code of Conduct, which is available in 13 different languages, ensures that our supplier partners share our standards for business integrity and ethics. 

Statement on Human Trafficking and Slavery in Supply Chains

(Published in Compliance with the California Transparency in Supply Chain and United Kingdom Modern Slavery Acts)
Corning is committed to policies and procedures that assure human rights compliance in our operations and in our supply chain. This includes oversight to identify and avoid all types of slavery and human trafficking, including forced labor, child labor, sex trafficking and workplace abuse.

Compliance with Customs Law

Corning Incorporated requires full compliance with U.S. Customs law. Whenever Corning is the U.S. Importer of Record, we enlist the assistance of our foreign suppliers to ensure full compliance. Complete instructions for all suppliers regarding compliance with U.S. import requirements can be found on the Corning Routing Guide page.

Transaction Requirements

Suppliers play an important role to ensure purchase transactions accurately represent contractual requirements, are error free, and facilitate timely payments. Corning’s policies require that all goods and/or services be purchased using an approved Purchase Order or P-Card.

Payment Options

Corning encourages the use of electronic funds transfer, as part of the enrollment process you can choose to utilize electronic banking or have us send you a check.

Supplier Training

To promote social responsibility within its supply chain, Corning provides ongoing training to its management leadership and employees, as well as supply chain partners.

Supply Chain Social Responsibility Supplier Training – In the Fall 2019, Corning will launch awareness training for its strategic preferred supplier on slavery and human trafficking to ensure Corning’s supply chains reflect our values and respect human rights. High risk suppliers are currently being trained on these subjects as part of our third-party audit program.

The selection and onboarding process is the best time to ensure that Corning Values and the values of our suppliers are aligned. As part of the selection process, suppliers are screened to identify potential risks early and ensure that suppliers meet Corning’s standards, including those related to supply chain social responsibility.
