Polycom Inc. joins the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), an alliance of technology companies that advocate for ethical and sustainable value for workers, the environment and businesses. The EICC is comprised of more than 110 electronics companies with the mission of ensuring its members, suppliers and stakeholders collaborate to improve working and environmental conditions through leading standards and practices.
As an Affiliate Member, Polycom will now align its current operations, as well as those of first-tier suppliers, with standards recommended and governed by the EICC.
“Membership with the EICC is helping Polycom to apply a comprehensive approach to promoting corporate social responsibility and sustainability throughout our supply chain,” said Brian Larnerd, Polycom’s director, corporate social responsibility. “While high-quality audio and video conferencing solutions empower human collaboration and sustainability, Polycom is committed to ensuring the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility wherever our products are made.”
As an Affiliate Member, Polycom will gain access to existing resources, assessments and audits conducted by EICC, which will help manage partner practices and supply chain risks more efficiently. Wherever possible, Polycom will seek to adopt the EICC approach and tools in practical ways in the spirit of the industry’s common goals.
