Committed to making a positive impact in the world.

It matters where our minerals come from.

At Plexus, we’re dedicated to preserving and protecting human rights across the globe. That’s why we make every effort to responsibly source materials throughout our global supply chain. We will not use minerals from corrupt origins, to ensure that the only impact we’re making in people’s lives is a positive one.

We extend our code of conduct to our vendors, suppliers, service providers and other business partners. Plexus’ business partners maintain the same high ethical standards for human rights and the responsible sourcing of materials, so as not to support corrupt or unfair treatment of people in the mining of minerals. Our supplier evaluation and qualification process helps us determine whether new and existing suppliers meet the criteria to become or remain a Plexus business partner.

Ensuring a higher standard of business practices.

Plexus is a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA®) because we believe it’s our responsibility to help take an active role in order to safeguard the things that support our communities, our workers and our innovation. Every day is another opportunity for us to ask, “What can we do today for an even better tomorrow?” It’s a chance to empower every employee to do what’s right and protect the well-being of those around us.

RBA membership involves more than a recommended code of conduct for the electronics industry. At Plexus, we see our membership as an opportunity to learn about and take action against business practices that threaten the prosperity of our workers, business, communities and environment. We implement these standards in all of our facilities around the world to ensure our workers are treated with respect and dignity, and our business operations are conducted in a responsible, ethical manner.

Innovation depends on a sustainable future.

We rely on the world around us for nourishment in every facet of life. Its beauty inspires new ideas. Its riches provide the resources we need to build and thrive. At Plexus, we hold ourselves accountable for doing what we can every day to safeguard our environment—for the sake of brighter ideas and a better tomorrow.

We’re innovators through and through. What drives our product development also carries over to our environmental sustainability efforts — continuous improvement and always seeking a better way. As we achieve our goals, we set our sights on even more challenging objectives.

Forward-looking goals for sustainability.

  • Environmental stewardship
  • Efficient use of resources
  • Increase profitability

Holding ourselves accountable.

We have adopted a global environmental management system that helps to guide and monitor our progress. Combining the international environmental management standard ISO 14001 with our corporate policies and initiatives, all Plexus manufacturing locations worldwide apply our global environmental management system. This framework helps us identify areas of risk and cost exposure at each unique location, which allows us to set site-specific objectives and targets to mitigate those risks.

Regular reviews of our environmental sustainability program allows for timely adjustments to our overall sustainability strategy, and align our goals and progress with the current business environment, long-term direction and emerging concerns.
