Silicon Labs Joins Responsible Business Alliance, Reinforcing Commitment to Ethical and Sustainable Global Supply Chain
Silicon Labs partners with world-class suppliers to manage products from development to customer delivery. As a fabless semiconductor company, we work with our supply chain to ensure global manufacturing processes are environmentally and socially responsible. We demand high standards of business integrity, environmental responsibility, and respect for human rights from all partners. For decades, we’ve worked closely with our suppliers to ensure they maintain ISO 14001:2015 certification and follow the Responsible Business Alliance® Code of Conduct.
This year, we officially joined the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), the world’s largest industry coalition dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in global supply chains. Over 500 companies with manufacturing across 120 countries have joined the RBA working together to improve efficiency and social, ethical, and environmental responsibility in the global supply chain.
As a member of RBA, we have a commitment to abide by the RBA Code of Conduct as well as require our suppliers to follow the same standards. This lays out a set of guidance rules to ensure responsible and sustainable management of the total supply chain. Adherence to these rules ensures strict business practices for labor, health & safety, business ethics and general management. The code ensures we go beyond compliance and maintain best practice in all operations of the supply chain and requires the same of our next tier suppliers.
For our customers, signing up to RBA is a statement that we are providing products that have been manufactured at environmentally and socially responsible suppliers and that we are committed to imposing safe working conditions for all workers throughout our supply chain.
Sustainable practices permeate every level of operations at Silicon Labs. We are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact through emissions and energy use, as well as develop products that are enabling innovative IoT solutions to improve energy efficiency and conservation efforts worldwide.
