- About NVIDIA
Our social responsibility policy and the EICC Code of Conduct provide a framework for addressing factory working conditions in our supply chain. We believe that, through our participation in collaborative industry initiatives such as the EICC, we can create more positive change in our supply chain, as opposed to working to implement change as a single company.
Since joining the EICC in 2006, we have leveraged our membership as an opportunity to raise awareness among our critical manufacturing suppliers, to improve factory working conditions in the areas of ethics, labor and working hours, environment, health and safety, and management systems.
To accomplish these goals, we integrate EICC training into our quarterly business reviews with our suppliers.
Supply Chain Goals
We are actively exploring how we can engage our suppliers in tracking environmental metrics related to the manufacturing of our products, such as the weight of materials, recycled inputs and the amount of energy or water used.
We are also working to:
We participated in the EICC carbon reporting process for 2009 to quantify emissions from our strategic suppliers. In 2010, we plan to partner with our chip operations suppliers to assess their water and energy usage and are inviting the suppliers of our large boards to participate in these assessments. We have also expanded the supplier list to include some of our IT vendors, increasing the scope and number of suppliers from which we requested data by 100 percent compared with 2009.
