Ingram Micro supports the protection of human rights globally. Our Global Human Rights Policy is designed to help us comply with all applicable laws and regulations that protect human rights. See link below for more details.
Ingram Micro does not condone human rights violations, and we strive to comply with all applicable laws and regulations that protect human rights. We pursue company-wide conformance to international human rights standards, and we consider the implementation of processes and business controls to help with such conformance. We expect the same of our Ingram Micro entities, associates, and business partners throughout our supply chain. We do not knowingly conduct business with business partners that are not aligned with the statements outlined above.
In 2017, we introduced a supplier code of ethics in alignment with the code of conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance. Our next steps include the following:
- Introduce supplier risk evaluations for key suppliers to collaboratively develop corrective action plans
- Actively engage suppliers and encourage adherence to best practices in corporate responsibility
- Improve supplier awareness of Ingram Micro’s ESG policies and programs
- Continue to work with key suppliers to identify materials and solutions that reduce environmental impact and promote equitable economic impact
We are a technology distributor, and we are not directly involved with the manufacturing of products or the purchasing of conflict minerals. As a technology distributor, we are not able to certify as to the country of origin of the minerals contained in the products manufactured by our business partners. We support the objectives outlined by the SEC as they relate to conflict minerals, and we are committed to working with our customers to supply products that meet their specifications.
Human rights violations by Ingram Micro associates will be investigated on a case-by-case basis and may result in disciplinary action.
All human rights violations or suspected violations shall be reported to the ethics hotline immediately. In addition, employees may contact the Chief Compliance Officer, the Human Resources department, or the Legal department. Associates who report human rights violations or who voice concerns about suspected violations will not be retaliated against under any circumstances (as is outlined in our Code of Conduct and our Non-Retaliation Policy).
Reports of human rights violations or suspected violations must be investigated as soon as possible, including notification of authorities where necessary. Appropriate corrective actions must be implemented for each incident to prevent recurrence.
