Compliance

Priority issue for: NVIDIA, customers, shareholders

Compliance is covered in NVIDIA’s Code of Conduct, which can be found on our Policies page.

At NVIDIA, we view compliance as the activities we undertake, and the systems we have in place, to ensure our continual adherence to all applicable laws and requirements from governments and customers, whether related to environmental, social or governance factors.

Governmental compliance is a critical component of NVIDIA’s business strategy because it involves our license to operate in all countries where we want to manufacture and sell our products, manage offices and hire employees. We obey and comply with all mandatory governmental regulations that apply to us in the communities in which we do business. We also comply with our customers’ requirements so we can meet our contractual obligations.

But this legal compliance is simply the baseline that establishes the minimum standards to which we hold ourselves accountable. In addition, we always comport ourselves in accordance with the highest ethical standards, regardless of whether there is a legal requirement to do so.

Within our two main operational areas – Silicon Chip Operations and Board Operations – are social and environmental compliance engineers who manage issues such as hazardous substances in products and conflict minerals. Our global legal and human resources teams stay abreast of issues related to bribery and ethics and hiring and labor practices. The sales operations team oversees the environmental, social and governance requirements of our customers and works cross-functionally to ensure that related teams are compliant within our obligations.

In all of these functions, we have established mechanisms not only to maintain active compliance, but to assess our performance and anticipate impending requirements and regulations.
