Sustainability and social responsibility within the global supply chain

The RBA Code of Conduct is a set of social, environmental, and ethical industry standards. The standards set out in the Code of Conduct reference international norms and standards including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO and SA standards, and many more. While the Code of Conduct originated with the electronics industry in mind, it is applicable to and used by many industries beyond electronics.

As leading manufacturers increasingly demand that their suppliers make a voluntary commitment to the RBA Code of Conduct, we provide auditing services based on RBA standards that certify compliance with its guidelines. An RBA audit enables you to show that your company abides by the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Known globally for our role in promoting safety, sustainability, and social responsibility across a range of industries, we are perfectly positioned to certify your organization according to RBA rules. Our experts bring extensive experience in the electronics sector to their auditing tasks and are pleased to offer insights that help you fulfill your commitment to social responsibility.

The RBA program speaks to electronics-adjacent sectors

The benefits of RBA audits

The Responsible Business Association (RBA)’s Code of Conduct reaches out to companies beyond the traditional electronics industry. As the automobile sector, toy manufacturers and other businesses increasingly depend on electronics and electronics supply chains, the guidelines set forth by the RBA prove relevant to a growing number of companies.

Whatever your profile, our RBA auditing services enable you to improve your image in the eyes of customers, partners, and the public by demonstrating that you take community responsibility seriously. You establish your company as an advocate of sustainable improvement in supply chain production requirements and foster innovation in your organization and beyond. Ultimately, an audit conducted according to RBA standards allows you to consolidate your market position and thrive.

The RBA Code of Conduct is the backbone of our auditing service

The code of conduct established by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), provides the basis of our RBA auditing services.

The code covers five principal areas:

  • Labor
  • Health and Safety
  • Environment
  • Ethics
  • Supply Chain

A sampling of RBA requirements includes:

  • Prohibition of coerced, exploitative, or involuntary employment
  • Prohibition of child labor
  • Prioritization of occupational safety in the workplace
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Pollution prevention measures esp. regarding air and water
  • Energy consumption awareness and reduction
  • Promotion of business integrity and anti-corruption measures
  • Transparency and fair business practices
  • Supply Chain management including materials restrictions, responsible sourcing of minerals and supplier responsibility
