Supply Chain Management

Priority issue for: NVIDIA, customers, nongovernmental organizations

Given NVIDIA’s fabless business model, close management of our supply chain is essential to our ability to deliver innovative products in a social and environmentally conscious manner.

We drive several of our supply chain initiatives through participation in the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). We follow the EICC Code of Conduct, audit critical suppliers and conduct internal assessments to ensure that we address all aspects of responsible supply chain management. We also comply with the EICC’s guidance regarding stakeholder grievances related to our social or environmental performance.

In the Supplier Responsibility section of this report, we cover in detail several areas that are material to NVIDIA. These include: safe working practices, auditing, water, carbon footprint, and conflict minerals. We also participate in nongovernmental organizations focused on issues relevant to Supplier Responsibility, such as the Public Private Alliance for Responsible Minerals Trade.
