Suppliers play a vital role in Carestream’s success and sustainability. The selection of raw materials, the mixing of chemical solutions, the fabrication of components, the assembly of finished goods, and the packaging prior to delivery are all examples of supplier activities that support material flowing to Carestream. It is important that these upstream activities are conducted in a manner that protects the environment, preserves human rights, and is consistent with ethical business practices. Carestream and its customers expect nothing less.
Carestream believes that adhering to a Supplier Code of Conduct is one way to achieve these expectations while avoiding increased cost and potential product disruptions.
Carestream has adopted the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition® (EICC®) Code of Conduct as expectations for its suppliers. This Code (Version 5.1, 2016) has been adopted in its entirety as described in the document link below. Although this Code was created for use in the electronics industry, it is to be applied to all Carestream suppliers as well.
