Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
- Our Acer Group Standards of Business Conduct (SBC) reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
- As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) - a nonprofit coalition of electronics companies committed to supporting the rights and well-being of workers and communities engaged in the global electronics supply chain -- we demonstrate our commitment to environmental and social responsibility. RBA members commit publicly to the RBA code of conduct (the “Code of Conduct”) and are expected to actively pursue conformance to the Code of Conduct and its standards as a total supply chain initiative.
- We require all manufacturing suppliers to abide by all applicable laws and regulations and by the RBA Code of Conduct, by treating employees with respect and dignity. We haves taken multiple actions to ensure social responsibility and labor rights in our supply chain.
- Acer believes that all work shall be voluntary and workers shall be free to leave work at any time or terminate their employment. Through the Code of Conduct, Acer prohibits any form of forced labor in its supply chain. Acer requires its suppliers to adhere to its Code of Conduct and verifies the conformance with routine audits.
