Sustainability Report

We believe in collaborative and responsible partnerships with our suppliers

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. In addition to key requirements around the ILO core labour standards, suppliers must comply with the Dialog Code of Business Conduct. This requires suppliers to follow relevant national law with respect to working hours, holiday entitlement and the outsourcing of labour as well as ensuring workers are not subject to physical or verbal abuse, bullying or any form of unlawful harassment and intimidation.

Supplier Engagement

Our major suppliers have committed to Dialog’s “Code of Business 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

Dialog only deals with fabrication partners who are accredited to or are compliant with the ISO14001 (environmental) and ISO9001 (quality) management system standards. In addition, we require our major suppliers to commit to the requirements of our Supplier Code of Conduct (and by extension to the EICC Code of Conduct) and to apply their own documented corporate social responsibility policy.

Every supplier is required to complete a self-audit questionnaire to identify and document compliance to our environmental requirements. Evidence of compliance to requirements is checked during regular supplier on-site audits.

Environment

We aim to minimize adverse environmental impacts by advancing environmentally compatible product design and behaving in an environmentally responsible manner. We achieve this by:

  • Maintaining a certifiable environment and energy management system in accordance with international standards (ISO14001, ISO 50001).
  • Continuously improving the environmental and energy performance throughout the entire product life cycle.
  • Selecting key subcontracts who are ISO14001 certified.
  • Meeting or exceeding environmental legal requirements and relevant regulations.
  • Increasing awareness and knowledge of environment and energy issues throughout the organization, so that it becomes a natural part of the decision making process.
