Corporate Social Responsibility
NETGEAR is committed to ensuring the highest standards of social responsibility regardless of where our products are made. Under NETGEAR’s corporate social responsibility program there are five main pillars.
Being a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA – formerly known as Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC)), NETGEAR fully supports the vision and goals of the RBA. We endorse the RBA Code of Conduct, and incorporate RBA standards into the NETGEAR Corporate Supplier Code of Conduct. Our corporate social responsibility program includes various initiatives and monitoring activities which reinforce our commitment as a responsible global citizen. NETGEAR conducts a risk assessment and performs audits on significant third party manufacturing locations at least once a year, which we target to cover no less than 80% of our total production. Results from audits are shared and agreed with suppliers, and supplier corrective action requests, if needed, are subsequently followed up during the Quarterly Business Review led by the Operations Department.
