Viasystems, Group, Inc. and all of its subsidiaries are committed to being good Corporate Citizens. In 2010, Viasystems adopted the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct (EICC) our framework for implementing our social responsibility program. The vision of the creators of the code of conduct is that "through the application of high standards, … companies can create better social, economic, and environmental outcomes for all those involved in the supply chain."
The Code describes four core areas of social responsibility: labor, health and safety, environmental, and ethics. As part of EICC requirements, Viasystems commits to helping ensure that working conditions in its facilities are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity, and that manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible. Viasystems achieves these goals, in part, through the implementation of responsible policies and practices that are the benchmark in our industry.
Viasystems, Group, Inc. and all of its subsidiaries are committed to conducting business with honesty and integrity, and in full compliance with applicable U.S. laws and regulations that control exports and govern international business activities.
