Philips' unresolved CSR issues in 2010

In this report on Philips by SOMO a number of issues are highlighted, including the company's lack of transparency regarding its internal sites and its supply chain. The report looks into the poor quality of social dialogue on the European level and how the company infringes upon the independent functioning of the European Works Council Philips. Last but not least the report notes a lack of corporate involvement with trade unions on a global level. The report does not present an exhaustive overview of labour and/or environmental issues, but a selection of issues that are deemed interesting to raise with Philips at this point in time and in this manner. For all issues a number of recommendations are formulated. Commenting upon the draft report, Philips informs SOMO ‘not to agree with the findings and conclusions stated in the report since they are nearly all factual incorrect and rather based on assumptions’. In its reaction, Philips does, however, not provide factual corrections. Philips simply counters the analyses and views in the report with its own views and beliefs.
