We are pleased to announce Veritas recently qualified as a regular member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA). The RBA is a non-profit coalition of electronics companies committed to supporting the rights and well-being of workers and communities worldwide who are affected by the global electronics supply chain.
RBA members commit and are held accountable to a common Code of Conduct, and use a range of RBA training and assessment tools to ensure continuous improvement in the social, environmental, and ethical responsibility of their supply chains.
Today, the RBA is comprised of more than 110 electronics companies that represent 17 different sectors from consumer brands to smelters, with combined annual revenue of greater than $4.75 trillion, and directly employ over 6 million people.
In addition to RBA members, thousands of companies that are tier 1 suppliers to those members are required to implement the RBA Code of Conduct. More than 3.5 million people from over 120 countries contribute to the manufacture of RBA members’ products. Members include Amazon, Apple, Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, and Microsoft.
Key benefits of being promoted to a regular member of the RBA:
Reflects the improvements Veritas is undertaking as member of the RBA
Ensures Veritas is addressing emerging issues and risks in supply chain sustainability
Enables voting on member-wide decisions (code and member compliance decisions, etc.)
Showing commitment and work to improve the social, environmental, and ethical responsibility of the Veritas supply chain is increasingly important as the company strives to become a leading corporate citizen. This work opens new business opportunities as Veritas customers and prospects increasingly request best practices from their supply chain.
