Western Digital has been an active participant in the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) since 2007. The RBA is a nonprofit comprised of electronics, retail, auto and toy companies committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities worldwide affected by the global supply chain. In 2017, we consolidated the memberships of our WD, HGST and SanDisk subsidiaries into a single Western Digital RBA membership.
Western Digital has maintained a long-standing commitment to the RBA’s mission and we actively participate in the RBA’s leadership. RBA members commit to a common Code of Conduct and utilize a range of RBA training and assessment tools to support continuous improvement in the social, environmental and ethical responsibility of their supply chains. Western Digital has incorporated programs that promote the RBA’s Code of Conduct into our internal operations and we communicate our commitment to and expectations regarding responsible supply chain practices to our suppliers and business partners.
