Strong and appropriate standards are essential to improving conditions in our industry's supply chain. When major electronics companies set consistent standards, we send a stronger message and enable our suppliers to implement the standards more efficiently.

In 2002, HP was the first electronics company to publish a Social and Environmental Responsibility Supplier Code of Conduct. In 2004, we helped lead the development of the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC), the standard we now apply. The EICC fosters responsible management and operational practices in labor, human rights, ethics, the environment, health and safety across the electronics industry's global supply chain.

The provision on freedom of association continues to receive the most comment from various stakeholder groups. To address their concerns, HP made changes to the provision in 2005.

In addition, HP suppliers must follow our General Specification for the Environment, regarding the materials restricted from use in our products and manufacturing processes (see Materials).

See detailed information about HP's ethical, social and environmental responsibility standards for suppliers.
