At any given time in 2017, the International Labour Organization reports that almost 24.9 million people are victims of forced labor. NXP is aware that slavery and trafficking is an issue within the semiconductor industry.
NXP is committed to respecting rights and upholding the values and high standards of ethics as expressed in our NXP Code of Conduct and NXP Supplier Code of Conduct. NXP has a zero-tolerance policy for slavery and trafficking. It is NXP’s policy that we and our suppliers shall not traffic in persons or use any form of slave, forced, bonded, indentured, or prison labor. This includes the transportation, harboring, recruitment, transfer, or receipt of persons by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, fraud, or payments to any person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation. NXP allows all employees the freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, the abolition of child labor and the elimination of discrimination.
NXP’s policies and due diligence measures are structured around the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the International Labor Organization (ILO) Standards, Social Accountability International (SAI), OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) and the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct, version 6.0. NXP also includes elements, modifications and clarifications from audits conducted internally and externally.
NXP expects our suppliers to respect rights, including maintaining policies and procedures to prevent the use of forced labor. NXP forbids suppliers and recruiters from charging fees to employees during recruitment processes, or withholding government issued documents. Our suppliers are obliged to comply with NXP’s Supplier Code of Conduct and all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
NXP continues to update its policies, procedures and training as needed to seek appropriate safeguards in its operations and supply chain.
