SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN, ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY
We want our products to be distinguished not only by their capabilities but also by the care and attention we put into designing them. The best breakthroughs are sustainable.
Supply Chain Management
As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), we have adopted the RBA Code of Conduct and expect all our suppliers to act in accordance with this Code.
We’re focused on creating products in ways that don’t harm individuals, communities, or the environment. We’re committed to achieving this goal through sustainable design practices in our products and supply chain.
Conflict Free Minerals
Qualcomm is aware of concerns that minerals mined in conflict areas in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries may be making their way into the electronics industry supply chain and may be fueling human rights violations and environmental degradation in the region. Qualcomm strives to provide DRC conflict free products. We expect our suppliers to obtain materials from environmentally and socially responsible sources, including conflict free sources within the DRC and adjoining countries.
Growing a global company on a planet with finite resources demands fresh thinking. We’re working to be a positive and creative force in protecting the environment by continually looking for ways to conserve water, minimize energy consumption, lower emissions, and reduce waste.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
Workplace health and safety is one of Qualcomm’s highest priorities. We execute a complete environment, health and safety (EHS) management and assurance process to ensure we fully protect our employees, contractors and others while providing a safe and healthy working environment.
