Supply Chain Strategy
SGH strives to maintain sustainable supply chain practices to ensure we are upholding the highest environmental and social standards throughout our value chain. We want to be trusted supply chain partners by following all applicable laws and hold ourselves accountable to high ethical standards.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct details expectations for suppliers to engage in ethical business practices and remain in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We require all our suppliers to sign the SMART Global Holdings Code of Conduct prior to conducting business, and require they also adopt the RBA Code and follow the principles and practices outlined therein.
Responsible sourcing is integral to ensuring our products are safe and ethically created. Our Conflict Minerals program is created to monitor the sourcing of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, which are at risk of being mined and sold under the control of armed groups to finance conflict. We follow guidance from RBA’s Responsible Mining Initiative (RMI) to ensure we are up-to date with industry best practices to address the responsible sourcing of minerals in our supply chain.
In line with the RMI, and to mitigate sourcing risks, we require all of our suppliers to complete the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT) annually. We also provide information about mica and cobalt upon customer request.
