NETGEAR is committed to ensuring the highest standards of social responsibility regardless of where our products are made. Under NETGEAR’s corporate social responsibility program there are five main pillars.
Being an applicant member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), NETGEAR fully supports the vision and goals of the EICC. We endorse the EICC Code of Conduct, and incorporates EICC standards into the NETGEAR Corporate Supplier Code of Conduct
. Our corporate social responsibility program includes various initiatives and monitoring activities which reinforce our commitment as a responsible global citizen. NETGEAR Internal Audit and Environmental Compliance conduct an annual risk assessment and perform audits on significant third party manufacturing locations at least once a year, which we target to cover no less than 80% of our total production. Results from audits are shared and agreed with suppliers, and supplier corrective action requests, if needed, are subsequently followed up during the Quarterly Business Review led by the Operations Department.
