Fortinet is committed to upholding environmental and labor standards throughout a diverse supply chain.
Our suppliers and vendors comply with major standards outlined in the RBA Code of Conduct sections: Labor, Health & Safety, Environment, and Business Ethics. Fortinet is very selective with its primary Contract Manufacturers, requiring them to be ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified and have their own ESG policies and reporting standards in place.
Regarding compliance with Human Rights and Labor regulations, Fortinet requires that all its employees and suppliers comply with all applicable laws and regulations for all work they perform with the company. Our suppliers must observe and comply with international principles relating to human rights, including but not limited to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and the UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015. Violations of local minimum wage and maximum working hour requirements are unacceptable, as are forced labor scenarios and labor contracts that impose unreasonable legal or practical limitations on the workers’ ability to leave their employment. Child labor is not to be used. Finally, suppliers must never discriminate illegally based on race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, disability, union membership, marital status, or political affiliation.
Through our Global Supplier Code of Conduct and Contract Manufacturer agreement, we have continued to reach across our supply chain to communicate our expectations regarding human rights, labor standards, business practices and workplace health and safety conditions. We also exercise our due diligence following industry best practices to assess and screen prospective Fortinet vendors and suppliers for human rights violations through a risk-based screening compliance process.
