Environmental and Social Responsibility Expectations for Suppliers
Agilent's citizenship objective is to be an economic, intellectual and social asset in each nation and community in which we do business. Our Standards of Business Conduct clarifies the extension of our values to our suppliers. It states that we will not establish or maintain a business relationship with a supplier if we believe that its practices violate local laws or basic international principles relating to Anti corruption, bribery, labor standards or environmental protection.
We expect our suppliers to adhere to environmental and social responsibility principles that are similar to those valued in Agilent. To clarify our expectations, in 2004, Agilent developed the Agilent Technologies Supplier Environmental and Social Responsibility (ESR) Code of Conduct. Agilent expects our suppliers to adhere to the requirements in this document. Our Code of Conduct requires suppliers to adopt sound environmental, health and safety management practices and incorporates eight International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions that have been identified as fundamental to the rights of human beings at work. Agilent has programs in place to monitor our suppliers' conformance with the Code of Conduct.
