Supplier Management

Supplier Policy

We firmly believe that fulfilling corporate social responsibility is critical to the sustained operation of an enterprise. Besides implementing and promoting Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC) and “Corporate Social Responsibility” inside MSI, we also hope that our suppliers would provide a safe work environment for their employees and treat their employees with respect and dignity, and ensure that their processes and products are environmentally responsible. Thus we drafted “Corporate Social Responsibility Requirements for Suppliers” in 2009, hoping that close supply chain collaboration will bring more benefits to customers, the environment and society as a whole.
