Our goal is to deliver high-quality products while ensuring that working conditions throughout our supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible. We believe that the most effective and efficient way to achieve these goals is by placing responsibility with the entities that have authority to institute and manage robust programs—our suppliers.
AMD incorporates corporate responsibility expectations into the same business processes we use for all supplier performance – the supplier business reviews (SBR). The SBR is the forum where senior leaders from both companies come together on a regular basis to discuss a broad range of topics relevant to our business relationship. Corporate responsibility is an integral part of these relationships and thus included in the SBR for all of AMD’s top-tier suppliers. To assure that our responsibility standards are being accomplished, we set clear expectations, ask our suppliers to report on their performance during SBRs and review third-party audit information.
