The road to sustainability
VAT believes long-term economic success cannot be achieved without considering social and environmental success as well. Companies are a part of the local and global communities in which they operate and can only thrive in the long term by contributing to the overall well-being of those communities.
VAT announced in 2018 its ambition to build a sustainability culture and sought guidance and support through membership in the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and the adoption of the RBA Code of Conduct. This established standards on social, environmental and ethical issues especially aimed at the electronics industry supply chain. These include the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO and SA standards, and many more. We also obtained certificates in quality management with ISO 9001 and environmental management through ISO 14001.
