Establish and Operate Supplier Code of Conduct

With the establishment of the supplier code of conduct based on the EICC international standard, LG Innotek has helped them prepare sustainable management system. The code of conduct illustrates what is required for suppliers, such as promoting social, environmental, and ethical business activities, creating a safe working environment, protecting dignity of employees, and taking responsibility for their operations. It is also included in the contracts that we sign with suppliers, so that they can comply with them in their business activities. The code of conduct consists of Labor Rights (Section 7), Health and Safety (Section 7), Environment (Section 6), Ethics (Section 5), Legal Extraction of Raw Materials (Section 1), and Management System (Section 10).

Supporting Suppliers’ CSR Management

LG Innotek supports its suppliers CSR management by training their CEOs, executives (CEO Academy for Shared Growth), and working staff. In the environmental education, we share global regulatory trends regarding hazardous substances and conflict resources. We also share case studies and suggestions for resolution, and discuss on special subjects such as emission trading scheme. In the ethical education, we teach how our suppliers can implement Jeong-Do Management - business management based on integrity, prevention of illegal profit generation, compliance with fair trade guidelines, etc. This program assists suppliers in practicing ethical management and contributing to civil society.

Evaluation on CSR When Selecting New Suppliers

LG Innotek evaluates corporate social responsibility when it selects new suppliers in four categories: environment, labor rights, safety management and ethics.

Environment Evaluate suppliers' environmental management system / hazardous materials management
Labor rights Conduct self-inspection by utilizing SA8000 check-sheet and request for a written pledge of compliance
Safety management Additional points are given to authorized economic operators (AEO) or those with ISO27001 (For those without ISO27001, safety management status is evaluated)
Ethical aspect Sense of responsibility and sincerity of suppliers' CEOs are evaluated
Others We acquire information on all refineries/origins of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold used in our products using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template by the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and ask suppliers to use certified smelters to prevent from using conflict minerals related to armed groups.
