Supplier Conduct Principles

In order to improve the risk management in supply chain , ASUS has formulated ASUS Supplier Code of Conduct in accordance with the RBA Code of Conduct and the Code of Corporate Social Responsibility for public company. At the same time, ASUS requires suppliers to sign and promise to share the corporate social responsibility of the supply chain.

Since 2009, 100% of new suppliers sign the ASUS Code of Conduct Compliance Declaration.

Milestone and Achievements:

We have formulated the ASUS Supplier Code of Conduct based on the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct, the major protocol in the international community, and with reference to PAS7000 regarding youth labor protection and SA8000 concerning care for female employees. All of this encourages suppliers to shoulder the corporate social responsibility (CSR) with a comprehensive management framework so we can build a sustainable supply chain together.
