Supply Chain Social Responsibility

Pedro Capiello, Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer

“Corning is committed to enabling a compliant and competitive sustainable supply chain – one that reflects our beliefs and values that have stood true for over 150 years. Not only are we committed to these values, but we are working with our suppliers to do the same. We are proactively building sustainability into our core processes, which will help manage our supply chain and require suppliers to deliver ethical and socially responsible standards like in our Supplier Code of Conduct. This includes forced labor and human trafficking enforcement, carbon emissions, responsible mining, and supplier diversity. We are members of the Responsible Business Alliance, a non-profit that defines and benchmarks industry social responsibility, and we continue to rank in the top quartile with the leading corporate external social responsibility assessment agencies. With the help of our employees, leadership, suppliers, and customers, Corning can make a real difference and achieve our sustainability goals for the betterment of our community and our world.”
