Pace requires that our supply chain partners and suppliers are committed to uphold the human rights of workers. This includes treating them with dignity and respect as understood by the international community and as embodied in international guidelines, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation Conventions.
Pace is a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and is committed to the EICC Code of Conduct. Pace supply chain partners and suppliers must, as a minimum, adhere as a minimum with the EICC Code of Conduct.
The Code establishes standards to ensure that working conditions in the electronics industry supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that business operations are environmentally responsible. Fundamental to the Code is the understanding that a business, in all of its activities, must operate in full compliance with the laws, rules and regulations of the countries in which it operates. The Code encourages participants to go beyond legal compliance, drawing upon internationally recognised standards, in order to advance social and environmental responsibility.
Pace also recognises that environmental responsibility is integral to producing world-class products. In manufacturing operations, any potential adverse effects on the community, environment and natural resources must be minimized and the health and safety of the public must be safeguarded. Recognized management systems such as ISO 14001 and the Eco Management and Audit System (EMAS) should be established by Pace’s supply chain partners and suppliers.
