Supply Chain|Supplier Code of Conduct

We expect our suppliers to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct, which means acting with integrity, obeying all applicable health, safety and environmental laws and protecting confidential and proprietary information.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct also:

Forbids the use of child labor, forced labor and discrimination.

Protects employees’ rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining, as permitted by local laws.

Describes how suppliers should work with us on compliance and enforcement issues.

Verizon reserves the right to review or audit our suppliers’ compliance with the Supplier Code. We also incorporate ongoing compliance into our business relationships and procurement decisions.

Verizon employees receive training in social and environmental supply chain issues, including supplier assessment, through initiatives such as green bag sessions, monthly Green Insider newsletters and on-site recruiting and engagement events.
