Building a better world by the way we innovate and operate.

Our five pillars of Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG).

Plexus Corp. has established an ESG program defined by five pillars that reinforce our vision to build a better world by being an innovator, a responsible employer, a community partner, a global citizen and a promoter of corporate governance.

Our commitment to create a better world.

Consistent with our vision to help create the products that build a better world, we are committed to building a better world by the way we operate. Plexus’ ESG program strives to build strong communities, develop our team members in an inclusive and diverse culture, protect our environment, embrace strong governance practices and set similar expectations on our partners. We recognize that by improving outcomes for society and all of our stakeholders, we maximize our ability to achieve our strategic objectives and deliver long-term value for our shareholders. We have demonstrated this commitment since our founding in 1979; it is authentic and core to our culture and long-term success.

A Plexus leadership committee chaired by our Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), which includes membership of our CEO, CFO and COO, governs our ESG program. Our Board of Directors is also highly engaged in our ESG efforts and strategy. The Governance and Sustainability Committee of the board oversees the effectiveness of our ESG program, including ESG policies and initiatives, sustainability reporting and trends that could impact the Company’s business operations, performance, reputation and sustainable growth. In addition, our Compensation and Leadership Development Committee oversees our human capital strategy, including diversity and inclusion efforts and global compensation policies and philosophies, while our Audit Committee oversees the effectiveness of our internal controls over reporting, our whistle-blower reporting program and management and governance of information technology.

In addition to our ESG governance, we are accustomed to establishing non-financial goals that are important to position Plexus for sustainable long-term success. The Compensation and Leadership Development Committee works with Plexus management to identify these goals that often comprise objectives under our short-term incentive compensation plan. In Fiscal Year 2022, for example, objectives under our executive short-term incentive plan include a 5% energy reduction target across all manufacturing sites, expansion of our Employee Resource Groups, which help to foster an inclusive workplace, as well as continued enhancements and testing of our cybersecurity incident response plan.

Innovator

Supporting the circular economy

Plexus is committed to environmental sustainability across our full value stream of solutions and we consider it an integral aspect of our “zero defect” culture. Integrated design and development, supply chain solutions, new product introduction, manufacturing and aftermarket services positions Plexus to drive innovation, value and sustainability throughout the circular economy.

Plexus’ design and development teams create innovative product and product packaging engineering solutions in collaboration with our customers to design products with environmental impacts and goals understood in advance. Our supply chain solutions teams ensure supplier accountability and compliance as well as optimized material usage and eco-friendly material and packaging selection. Through Plexus’ expertise in new product introduction and manufacturing, we efficiently bring products to market while focusing on reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes. Lastly, Plexus’ unique Aftermarket Services solutions extend product lifecycles, enable recycling and re-usability and ensure appropriate end of life disposal.

Ensuring our principles are upheld across our supply chain.

Our Supplier Code of Conduct is distributed and made available to all suppliers. In this Code, we share our expectations for suppliers to read and conform to the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct. The standards established in the Code of Conduct reference international norms and standards, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, and OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Plexus asks our suppliers to join us in our efforts in aligning to responsible business practices by registering with the RBA. We additionally require our major suppliers to complete the RBA social responsibility assessment each year and, through the online platform, we monitor supplier conformance and work with our suppliers on any areas of concern.

Responsible Employer

Doing business the responsible way.

We're driven by fairness, honesty and ethical business. With zero tolerance for corruption and dishonest business practices, we’re accountable for getting things done the right way. Excellence only flourishes when we hold ourselves to higher standards in every interaction with customers, suppliers and our team members. Our Values and Leadership Behaviors support our culture of accountability by defining how we will conduct ourselves. As a proud member of the Responsible Business Alliance, we are part of a global coalition dedicated to improving the working conditions throughout our global supply chain through initiatives focused on the well-being, promotion and rights of workers.

We regularly dedicate time and resources to ensure that our company is aligned with anti-corruption laws in all jurisdictions. We assess compliance and social risks associated with each individual role, and we continue to educate employees at all levels of the organization about the importance of avoiding unfair business practices, complying with fair competition laws and other critical regulatory, social and ethics topics. Training completion is tracked in the company’s Learning Management System (LMS).

Community Partner

Working together to care for the communities we call home.

Plexus looks to share with our communities as we prosper. Each year, we contribute to non-profit causes in our communities and encourage employee volunteerism. Helping to improve the places where we do business has a positive impact on everything we do. It supports a continuous cycle of well-being that doesn't begin or end at our facilities.
 
We give to local charities that enhance innovation, promote technology-related educational programs (STEM) and preserve the quality of life in communities in which our teammates reside – what’s important to our teammates is important to us.  Through monetary donations and the promotion of volunteerism, the Plexus Charitable Foundation gives us all a chance to work together to achieve something better.

Our Focus on Charitable Giving

Global Citizen

Committed to making a positive impact in the world.

As a global organization, we understand the far-reaching impact we have on our planet and its inhabitants. Each of our facilities can directly influence the communities in which we operate. The suppliers we partner with expand our scope of influence. As a member of the Responsible Business Alliance, we collaborate with other leading global electronics companies to create sustainable business practices that protect our workers and our environment. We’re all in this together, which is why we make sure we act as a good neighbor.

It matters where our minerals come from.

We make every effort to responsibly source materials throughout our global supply chain. We will not knowingly use minerals from corrupt origins to ensure that the only impact we’re making in people’s lives is a positive one. We hold our business partners accountable for the responsible sourcing of materials so as not to support corrupt or unfair treatment of people in the mining of minerals.
