To advance our commitment to sustainability and corporate responsibility we adhere to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact, ‘a policy framework for the development, implementation and disclosure of sustainability principles and practices related to its four core areas: human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Indeed, managing the enterprise risks and opportunities related to these areas is today a widely understood aspect of long-term "value creation" — value creation that can simultaneously benefit the private sector and societies at large’.
Dialog is committed to the adoption of the Electronics Industry Code of Conduct (EICC) standard as the model for ensuring that working conditions for internal and external suppliers are safe and that all workers are treated with respect and dignity.
In addition, the company complies with the ISO 14001 environmental standard – and expects its suppliers to do the same – in order to ensure that all manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible.
Other recognized standards such as International Labour Organization Standards (ILO), Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Social Accountability International (SAI), and the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) were used as references in preparing this Code and may be useful sources of additional information.
Dialog believes that continued success in the semiconductor market can be achieved only by adopting continuously high standards of ethical behaviour when dealing with customers, suppliers and workers. It is particularly important to protect intellectual property (IP), which is the key to ensuring the development of innovative solutions to complex problems. Any transfer of technology or know-how is always done in a manner that protects IP rights; effective protection also means that products can be discussed openly with our business partners.
The disclosure of information which is related to business activities, structure, our financial situation and performance is always carried out in accordance with applicable regulations and prevailing industry practices. We expect the highest standards of integrity from all Dialog stakeholders; any malpractice is strictly prohibited and may result in immediate termination and legal action.
Neither we nor our suppliers offer or accept inducements or any other means of obtaining undue or improper advantage. We have a “Whistleblower” policy in place to protect employees’ confidentiality and encourage our suppliers to do the same.
