Our SAVE (Sustainability at Veritas Empowered) ERG is an employee-led sustainability programme that supports Veritas' commitment to the environment. Our SAVE Teams are located at various Veritas sites around the world and support local initiatives to increase environmental awareness and engagement among Veritas employees.
Veritas promotes responsible operation not only in our own operations, but also throughout our supply chain. Veritas’ global supply chain, which includes activities related to the manufacturing and transportation of Veritas’ physical products, contains six Tier 1 suppliers. Our oversight includes the sourcing of raw materials as well as the selection and management of suppliers that assemble and ship our packaged products. We are committed to manufacturing and fulfilling products that meet the demand of our customers and partners with a strong focus on quality, corporate social responsibility and operational efficiencies.
In 2016 Veritas joined the RBA. Veritas has voluntarily adopted the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct and subsequently applied the code to our supply chain and some of our Tier 1 suppliers. More recently, Veritas qualified as a regular member of the RBA.
The RBA Code of Conduct is a set of standards on social, environmental and ethical issues in the electronics industry supply chain. The standards set out in the Code of Conduct reference international norms and standards including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO and SA standards, and many more.
The RBA code outlines Veritas' expectations regarding labor conditions and the protection of labor rights, prohibits child labor and forced or compulsory labor, and promotes environmental and ethical practices by our suppliers.
The RBA contains provisions to address performance in the following areas:
Health and safety
Through this industry collaborative effort, we expect to obtain the following benefits:
Our Procurement Code of Conduct, which is closely aligned with the RBA Code of Conduct, continues as Veritas' code of conduct for the rest of our supply chain.
At Veritas, we work to preserve and uphold human rights throughout our company and our supply chain. We have a zero-tolerance policy for forced labor, slavery, child labor and human trafficking, as outlined in our Human Rights Policy, the RBA Code of Conduct and the United Nations Global Compact.
On March 26, 2015, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 was passed into law in the United Kingdom. This law requires companies to publish a formal statement of how they are preventing human trafficking and slavery in their supply chains.
Veritas also complies with the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 which requires retail sellers and manufacturers with annual worldwide gross receipts over $100 million doing business in the state of California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains. Veritas statement for the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act can be found here: Veritas Statement California Transparency Supply Chain Act.
Veritas has a zero-tolerance policy and expects all employees and contractors to be aware of the implications of violating any aspect of human-trafficking related activities. Employees and contractors can report potential violations of this policy to Veritas EthicsLine.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") adopted a rule under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that requires companies to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain conflict minerals that originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or other Covered Countries. We support the aims and objectives of the US legislation on the supply of conflict minerals as stated in our Veritas Conflict Minerals Policy.
To underscore this commitment, we have also:
Veritas’ approach to addressing conflict minerals issues in our supply chain aligns with the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI), led by the RBA and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative. We require our suppliers to complete the CFSI’s Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT), which identifies the mineral country of origin and the smelters and refiners utilised. The Template also facilitates the identification of new smelters and refiners that should undergo an independent third-party audit to verify that they are “conflict-free”.

At Veritas, we believe that supplier diversity is a distinct business advantage that supports economic growth in the communities we serve, and reflects another way we offer value to our customers. As part of our Supplier Diversity programme, we actively track our supply base and monitor progress towards our company spending goals. We also participate in various activities of outreach, engagement and instruction with our current and prospective suppliers, including through supplier mailings, mentoring, attendance at national and regional conferences, and awareness campaigns. For more on this programme, please refer to our website.
In 2016 Veritas became an ENERGY STAR® partner, demonstrating our commitment to energy efficiency.
In Veritas, we have set up a process to ensure all new products scheduled to launch will meet Energy Star requirements.
ENERGY STAR®-qualified products and practices help save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the US Department of Energy.
A recent set of tests conducted jointly by US EPA, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft demonstrated that replacing an older server with a new ENERGY STAR®-qualified model will save energy and deliver more processing power. In some of these tests, the new ENERGY STAR® server consumed 54 per cent less power than older model servers. Servers that earn the ENERGY STAR® will, on average, be about 30 per cent more energy-efficient than standard servers.
Veritas is committed to offering products and services worldwide that help customers conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprint.
By reusing and recycling electronic equipment, we extend its useful life and reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill. Refurbishment and reuse is especially important for electronics and other e-waste because they often contain metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, gold and silver, which have multiple significant environmental impacts – from their initial mining to potential environmental contamination if they are not recycled or disposed of properly.
Veritas prioritises opportunities to reuse spare parts and relocate old inventory to avoid the purchase of new equipment. Equipment that has reached the end of its useful life is sent to responsible third party vendors for proper recycling. These vendors offer services such as hardware retrieval, asset tag and identifier removal, sorting and environmentally responsible data wiping, cleaning and destruction procedures.
For more information please visit our WEEE Compliance and Battery Recycling website.
Veritas is committed to providing products and services that meet and exceed international standards and achieve continual improvement. We are committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations including the European Packaging Directive, the European Batteries Directive, European Union Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, the European Union Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, the European Union Packaging Directive, the European Union Batteries Directive, REACH (Regulation for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) Regulation, China RoHS.
