Establishing environmentally-friendly partnerships

Within our supply chain, we continually emphasise that environmental issues and technology should be an instinctive part of any decision-making process.

Human Rights

Dialog’s suppliers must demonstrate a commitment to upholding workers’ human rights and to treating them with dignity and respect. Standards such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Social Accountability International and the Ethical Trading Initiative have been used as a basis for these requirements.

All labor must be given voluntarily and workers must be free to leave their employment on reasonable notice. Child labour must not be used at any stage of manufacturing. Working hours must not exceed the maximum set by local laws and wages must comply with all applicable laws. Suppliers must ensure that workers are not threatened or subjected to inhumane or harsh treatment, harassment or any form of unlawful discrimination.

Supplier Engagement

Our major suppliers have committed to Dialog’s “Code of Conduct” which reflects our commitment to the Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). In addition, 100% of our major suppliers have their own documented corporate social responsibility policy.

We are working with our suppliers to develop recovery processes, resource substitution technologies and methods to reduce CO2 emissions throughout the supply chain.

Supply Chain Standards

As a fabless semiconductor company, it is important to Dialog that all of its manufacturing partners also follow their requirement to respect the environment. To this end every supplier is required to complete a self-audit questionnaire to identify and document compliance to Dialog’s environmental requirements. Evidence of compliance to requirements is checked during regular supplier on-site audits (IS014001).
