Supply Chain Sustainable Management Results
Novatek assesses the risks that suppliers may face in terms of sustainable development from the three major aspects of economy, society and environment, and then takes appropriate measures to respond. In the aspect of economy, the quality management system will be the focus of the assessment. Through the control of the quality system, processes such as product development, delivery, project management, production capacity and services can achieve the expected results for continuous improvement and progress, maintaining economic stability. In the aspect of society, Novatek attaches importance to management of social responsibilities, ensures compliance with international labor rights, and provides workplaces that comply with requirements in health, safety and hygiene. As for the aspect of environment, we pay attention to the management of hazardous substances and the control of environmental risks. The green design at the source is combined with green procurement and production to reduce the impact on the environment, together creating ecological sustainability!
Novatek continues to monitor the compliance status of suppliers for the above certifications. It is hoped that in the next 5 years, the rate of receiving relevant certifications for the suppliers can be effectively increased, making contribution together to corporate social responsibility.
Supply Chain Corporate Social Responsibility
Novatek requires suppliers to coordinate with CSR-related policies, to create a sustainable and survivable green enterprise together with us and safeguard labor rights.
Conflict Mineral Management
The conflict mineral system refers to gold (Au), tantalum (Ta), tungsten (W), tin (Sn), and other specific minerals that may be regulated by the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) in the future. They come from mining regions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or neighboring countries controlled by non-governmental military groups or illegal military factions. The illegal mining profits obtained by these local military groups are stolen from citizens, causing human rights violations and environmental degradation.
Novatek requires its suppliers to comply with the Responsible Business Alliance's Code of Conduct and only makes purchases from environmentally and socially responsible suppliers. The metals and minerals used in Novatek products are not from the regions controlled by the non-governmental or illegal military factions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or its neighboring countries.
