People, planet & profit

We embrace responsibility for the impact of all our activities, be it on the environment, communities, employees, consumers or workers at the original manufacturers.

At EG Electronics we see it as our duty to actively follow up on the humanitarian conditions at our suppliers. We regularly visit our suppliers of components and take responsibility all the way back to the original manufacturer. Our ambition is to incorporate all our social responsibility activities into our quality management system and proactively encourage community growth and development wherever we operate in the world.

For the purpose of protecting Human Rights, promoting fair employment condition, safe working conditions, responsible management of environmental issues and high ethical standards our Code of Conduct shall be applied in the sales and supply chain of all our services worldwide.

In order to make this commitment clear to employees, suppliers, customers and other stakeholders our Code of Conduct is based on the United Nations Global Compact Initiative, an international initiative which is supported by corporations around the world to ensure accountability.

Proceeds from the mining of certain minerals in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the “DRC”) and countries adjoining it have been linked to violations of human rights through the funding of illegal armed groups. In accordance with the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) requires publicly traded companies to report on the origin of these conflict minerals.

EG Electronics is committed to conducting its worldwide business operations in a manner that complies with applicable laws and regulations regarding conflict minerals.

To comply with these requirements, EG Electronics is committed to:

- Inform direct suppliers about this Conflict Minerals Policy

- Work with its direct suppliers and sub- suppliers to understand the chain of custody for conflict minerals at least to the smelter or refiner level.

- Take measures to source parts and components from its direct suppliers and sub- suppliers that are DRC conflict-free. These measures may include adopting, disseminating and incorporating this policy in related purchase orders, contracts and other appropriate agreements with suppliers.

- Encourage direct suppliers to track and improve their performance in sourcing minerals from their suppliers and subsuppliers that are validated as being DRC conflict-free in accordance with a national or internationally recognized due diligence framework.
