Supply chain accountability
TI depends on more than 11,000 suppliers to help create products and services that enhance the company's competitiveness, while improving quality of life in neighboring communities and reducing environmental impacts.
We recognize that innovative thinking, collaboration and transparency create long-term sustainable value. That is why we proactively work with our suppliers to:
- Reduce environmental and social impacts and mitigate other sustainability risks.
- Cut costs and improve operational efficiency.
- Develop innovative approaches to product development.
We conscientiously evolve our own procurement management practices, standards, policies and systems to comply with applicable laws and regulations, and to hold ourselves and our suppliers accountable for responsible conduct and performance.
Critical elements of our supply chain accountability efforts are transparency, responsible sourcing, conflict minerals, expectations and management of suppliers, and minority/women business development.
