Lets Corning work with partners to enable social features and marketing messages.


In collaboration with our supplier partners around the world, we work to ensure that our supply chain complies with the highest standards for ethical sourcing, responsible labor practices, and environmental stewardship. Together, we’re committed to a program that continually assesses and reduces risk, fosters ongoing improvement, and is respectful of human rights and the environment.

Human Rights

At Corning, we pledge to uphold the highest standards for fundamental human rights and view them as a key component of a socially responsible supply chain. We closely monitor supply chain activity and collaborate with our supplier partners to promote fair, safe, and healthy working environments. See our Human Rights Policy.

Responsible Materials Sourcing

We strive to ensure that our supply chains are ethical and sustainable and that we are fulfilling our commitment to respect human rights through responsible sourcing practices that conform, in all material respects, with the framework in The Organization for economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, for Corning and its supplier partners. See our Conflict Minerals Policy.

Supplier Diversity

Diversity is an integral part of Corning’s value system and a critical business initiative. We understand the value a diverse supply chain can bring to innovation and productivity, and we are committed to providing access to all suppliers and to promoting diversity in our supply chain.

One of the main objectives of our supplier diversity initiative is to give diverse businesses an opportunity to participate in our contracting and procurement process. We are also working to increase the amount of quality products and services we obtain directly from diverse suppliers.

Corning actively participates in key organizations such as NGLCC, NMSDC, and WBENC.
