Supply chain

 

The Adobe product life cycle begins by establishing relationships with third-party vendors who share our values and represent our dedication to responsible workplace practices. Our global supply chain spans North America, Asia and Europe, and our commitments include compliance with federal, state and local legislation; opt-in industry-wide efforts; and company-led initiatives.

 

 

Adobe codes of conduct
Adobe has a comprehensive Code of Business Conduct that sets standards and expectations for employee behavior both at work and in the marketplace. This code is based on our guiding principles: integrity, respect, honesty, quality, responsibility and fairness. We engage only with business partners, suppliers and vendors who share our commitment these principles. We’ve also adopted a comprehensive Business Partner Code of Conduct, derived from the United Nations Global Compact, that details our expectations for all business partners. Topics covered in the Business Partner Code of Conduct include integrity and compliance with laws; labor standards; environmental standards; and procedures.
 

Anti-corruption compliance and training
Adobe is committed to conducting business free from extortion, bribery and all unlawful, unethical or fraudulent activity. Adobe partners must not offer, give, promise or authorize any bribe, gift, loan, fee, reward or other advantage to any government official or employee, any customer, any Adobe employee or any other person to obtain any business advantage or improperly influence any action or decision. Adobe business partners, suppliers and vendors must comply with all applicable international anti-corruption laws and regulations, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act. As part of our commitment, we require all Adobe employees to complete an Adobe Conflicts of Interest questionnaire in line with our Conflicts of Interest Policy Statement.
 
 
Supply Chain Transparency Act
In accordance with the California Supply Chain Transparency Act (SB 657), Adobe’s statement of disclosure articulates our policies and practices around recognizing and preventing human trafficking and slavery in the global supply chain. Read the Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy Statement.
 

Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition involvement
Adobe has been a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) since 2006. We’ve adopted EICC’s Code of Conduct as the framework for implementing our supply chain responsibility program. By embodying EICC’s high standards and vision, we’re supporting better social, economic and environmental outcomes for those involved in our supply chain.
 
The EICC code consists of five core areas of supply chain responsibility: labor, health and safety, environmental, management systems and ethics. As part of EICC requirements, we’ve committed to helping ensure that working conditions in our global supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible. By using various implementation tools made available to EICC members, we’re able to adhere to our workplace commitments and achieve our goals.
 
As an engaged member of the EICC, our Supply Chain Operations team participates in EICC working groups to continuously refine codes. We also administer the EICC Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire, a comprehensive survey tool used to identify potential corporate responsibility risks within a company’s global supply chain, to all Tier 1 suppliers. To date, 100 percent of our Tier 1 suppliers have completed and passed the questionnaire.
