At Cisco, we rely on more than 600 suppliers worldwide to manufacture, test, ship, and recycle the products we design. We demand the same high standards from our suppliers, and their suppliers, that we practice every day with regard to ethics, labor practices, health and safety, and the environment.
We also collaborate with industry groups to raise standards and build sustainability capabilities throughout the entire information and communications technology (ICT) supply chain.
Through these efforts, we multiply our positive impact across our industry, its employees, their communities, and the planet far beyond Cisco's walls.
Cisco's "supplier scorecards" help us better monitor supplier performance and collaborate with our supply chain partners, such as D.W. Morgan, to optimize environmental and labor improvements.
Cisco has adopted the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct for our company and our suppliers and partners. We engage with our suppliers, incentivize them to adopt sustainable and responsible business practices, and require them to apply Cisco's standards with their own suppliers. All suppliers must agree to the Cisco Supplier Ethics Policy, as well. Our program to increase inclusion and diversity of our global suppliers is an essential part of our company-wide commitment to diversity.
