We are proud to announce that Veritas has been accepted as Applicant Member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). The EICC is a coalition of electronics companies committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities worldwide affected by the global electronics supply chain. EICC members commit and are held accountable to a common Code of Conduct and utilize a range of EICC training and assessment tools to support continuous improvement in the social, environmental and ethical responsibility of their supply chains. Today the EICC is comprised of more than 100 electronics companies globally.
While Veritas is committed to enabling organizations to harness the power of their information, we are equally committed to ethical and responsible global corporate responsibility, promoting a talented, diverse and inclusive workforce, engaging in sound environmental practices, and investing in positive social impact around the globe.
As a new company, we have the opportunity to make a fresh start to build our corporate social responsibility agenda, while building on our legacy. Making a positive impact in the lives of stakeholders around the world is as important as our business success, and corporate and social responsibility remains fundamental to our business.
We are excited about our EICC membership and as an Applicant Member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), Veritas fully supports the vision and goals of the EICC:
Vision: A global electronics industry that creates sustainable value for workers, the environment and business.
Mission: Members, suppliers and stakeholders collaborate to improve working and environmental conditions through leading standards and practices.
Veritas commits to progressively align its own operations with the provisions of the EICC Code of Conduct and to support and encourage its own supply chain first-tier suppliers to do the same.
Wherever possible, Veritas will seek to adopt the EICC approach and tools in practical ways in the spirit of the industry's common goals.
We look forward to working as part of the EICC Program and to joining other members who have made this commitment to good corporate citizenship.
