The Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) presents its 2008 annual report.
The Electronics Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) presents its 2008 annual report. Since 2004, the EICC has grown “from a handful of companies, that wanted to develop a code of conduct for the electronics industry, to more than 40 leading enterprises embracing the code and expanding its use across the globe”. In the message accompanying the annual report, the EICC describes how it has formalised its commitment to this collaborative approach by establishing the organisation as an official association, with a Board of Directors, professional management support, and a structured membership process. The EICC, again in its own words, made progress in the development of a joint audit process to measure adoption of the code by its supply chain. EICC also mentions the expanding interactions with important stakeholder groups that provide invaluable feedback.
