Apple publishes the annual report of responsibility for its suppliers

As usual, the Cupertino company continues to carry out audits on suppliers to verify that the equality and working conditions of its employees and suppliers are met. In this case and during this last year the company has registered fewer than 50 cases of non-compliance with labor standards, specifically 44, so it is a very good figure considering the number of factories, suppliers and employees that move.

Suppliers are the cornerstone of the brand and of any brand, since they are the first to participate in the products. In this sense, Apple has been clear about it for a long time and zero tolerance for inequality is the main thingDespite the fact that each country has its own rules and we could clarify the same, Apple wants and demands compliance with current regulations for the manufacture and development of all its products.

In this sense, the main cases are directly related to the amount of work hours performed by some of these employees or suppliers, reaching a figure of 38 files opened for it of the 44 cases detected. Among these cases Apple also explains in his press release that two of the cases were related to underage employees and on another occasion an agency in the Philippines obtained a million dollars for the hiring of employees for an assembly line.

During 2017, audits were carried out on a total of 756 suppliers in more than 30 different countries and the result of this is the number of 44 files that will have to be resolve as soon as possible with the corresponding sanctions. On the other hand, this published report shows the work carried out by Apple taking into account the environment and shows the program: Supplier Employee Education and Development, with which thousands of employees benefit from courses to better qualify at work and move up in these great chains of command that exist, so you get a better position in them. This entire report is available at the Apple website.
