The Electronic Industry Code of Conduct was established in 2004 to promote a common code of conduct for the electronics, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. EICC members participate on Work Groups to develop the association’s programs and tools. EICC members are committed to collaboration, and a common approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices as they relate to the global ICT supply chain. EICC is also committed to collaboration with stakeholders to improve environmental and work conditions in the(ICT) industry. EICC hosts stakeholder events and solicits input from stakeholders for continuous improvement of the Code of Conduct.
