The Adobe product life cycle begins by establishing relationships with third party printer, replicator, and turnkey vendors. Adobe’s global supply chain spans across North America, Asia, and Europe. Our commitments range from required legislation compliance on the federal, state, and local levels, opt-in industry- wide efforts, and self-pursued company initiatives.
In 2006, Adobe joined the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) and adopted the coalition's Code of Conduct as Adobe’s framework for implementing its own supply chain social responsibility program. The EICC's vision is that "through the application of high standards, member companies can create better social, economic, and environmental outcomes for all those involved in the supply chain."
The EICC's Code of Conduct consists of five core areas of supply chain social responsibility: labor, health and safety, environmental, management systems, and ethics. As part of EICC requirements, Adobe commits to helping ensure that working conditions in its global supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible. Adobe achieves these goals, in part, through the use of various implementation tools that are available to members of the EICC.
Adobe has been an active and engaged member of the EICC. Adobe’s Supply Chain Operations team participates in EICC Working Groups to continuously refine the codes.
Adobe administered the EICC Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire, a comprehensive tool used to identify potential corporate responsibility risks within a company’s global supply chain, to all Tier 1 suppliers. 100% of Tier 1 suppliers have completed and passed the Supplier Assessment.
