PCH has a defined sustainability structure. Overseen by our Chief Financial Officer (CFO), we believe the ongoing success and growth of our initiative is ensured through the economic success of the program.
Projects are focused both internally at PCH and our facilities, as well as externally in the supply base. Decisions are made with consideration given to economic, environmental, and social performance.
Our strategy is to use compliance as a minimum requirement and build innovative programs beyond that to tackle sustainability issues at their core as well as upstream in the supply chain.
PCH and our suppliers have operated within the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct for the past six years and in 2012 PCH officially joined the EICC. We have committed to ISO140001 and ISO26000 compliance, as well as UN Global Compact, and continue to report on our progress.
The goal of the Sustainability X-Functional Team is to develop programs that benefit the triple bottom line of environmental, economic, and social performance. The benefit of reduced waste (energy and material) in the supply chain is clearly visible within these initiatives.
PCH continues to develop programs for increased social impact—within our own workforce, that of our supply base, as well as our local community. We work closely with a number of local and international NGOs with a specific focus on the well-being of migrant workers in the supply chain. Access to legal consultation as well as educational opportunities is a priority.
PCH will release a COP (Communication On Progress) to track our efforts in this regard and future programs will continue to meet the previously detailed criteria of (a) core business objectives and (b) alignment with core competencies.
