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 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 only engage with business partners, suppliers, and vendors who share and practice our commitment these principles. We’ve also adopted a comprehensive Business Partner Code of Conduct , derived from the United Nations Global Compact, which 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.
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.

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's Code of Conduct 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 utilizing various implementation tools made available to EICC members, we’re able to adhere to our workplace commitments and achieve our goals.
As an active and 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.
