Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)
The Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) is an industry organisation of leading electronics manufacturers which seek to improve working and environmental conditions through the promotion of an industry Code of Conduct for global electronics supply chains. The EICC Code of Conduct is the highest recognized standard for our industry on environmental and corporate social responsibility issues and also addresses the treatment of employees and their well-being, health and safety and business ethics.
XP Power achieved Full Membership of the EICC in March 2011. The Company adopted the EICC Code of Conduct and have been working with its key suppliers to ensure they too are compliant with the Code.
The EICC framework is enabling XP Power to make continous improvements to its performance on environmental matters but also in employee relations, health and safety and business ethics.
Integrity of Our Supply Chain
As well as adopting the standards set by the EICC Code of Conduct XP Power also works closely with its suppliers to encourage them to adopt the same high standards. Supplier audit process includes evaluating suppliers' performance against the environment, treatment of labor, health and safety and business ethics standards set out in the EICC Code of Conduct. The policy is to disengage with suppliers found to be environmentally negligent or non-compliant with XP Power's policies.
As well as conducting regular supplier audits XP Power also hosts a supplier day at its China facility which, amongst other things, allows XP Power to communicate its expectations so they can work closely together on improving environmental, corporate social responsibility and commercial issues.
