Our longstanding adoption and renewed commitment every year to the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact has been a foundation in the way we are doing business.

More specifically, Technicolor policies prohibit the use of child labor, forced labor, human trafficking and slavery in its operations and its supply chain and require its suppliers to comply with our standards. The resulting governance processes have helped to place Corporate Social Responsibility at the heart of our business approach.


United Nations Global Compact Progress

The Global Compact is a United Nations initiative which challenges Member companies to align their operations and strategies around 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor standards, environmental practices and anti-corruption and to develop best practices in these fields.

Technicolor seeks to comply with the highest ethical standards, to take into account the legitimate and ethical interests of all its stakeholders as well as the United Nations founding principles. We submit each year a Communication on Progress as part of our support and engagement in favor of the Global Compact.

Technicolor’s annual Global Compact Communication on Progress is now an integral part of our Sustainability report.

International Labor Organization Principles

Technicolor closely follows the guiding principles laid out in the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work in its approach to Ethics and Social Responsibility, a standard reinforced in the Group’s Ethics policy and in its membership with the United Nations Global Compact.

In this way, the Company pledges to ensure freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining, elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labor, effective abolition of child labor and elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

These principles carry through into the supply chain, and supplier compliance with the Company’s policies and principles relating to ethics and human rights is monitored through a Supplier Ethics and Social Responsibility program.


Principles of Non-Discrimination

Technicolor’s policy is to provide equal employment opportunity without regard to race, gender, religion, national origin, age or disability status.

Non-discrimination and equal employment opportunity policies, based upon the Ethics Charter and locally augmented according to specific legal requirements if needed, including the anti-harassment policy, are implemented at all Technicolor sites. In several countries, managers and supervisors are provided legal awareness training sessions about anti-harassment and non-discrimination.

In addition to the role of the management, detection of discrimination cases also relies on the whistleblower policy allowing any employee to confidentially disclose their situation or the situation of a co-worker, without fear of publicity or adverse reaction.


Conflict Minerals

Technicolor, like many other companies, is aware that electronic products and components purchased from suppliers may contain certain minerals originating from conflict-affected countries, specifically Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, and Gold (“3TG Conflict Minerals”).

As part of Technicolor’s overall commitments to Corporate Social Responsibility, the Group is committed to ensure that minerals contained in its products are sourced with due respect to human rights, the need to avoid contributing to conflicts, and the desire to support developments through our supply chain practices.

The Group has implemented a due diligence process by asking its suppliers to conduct investigations in their own supply chain, so as to determine the origin of the 3 TGs conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold) provided to Technicolor, and therefore to avoid directly or indirectly any use of 3TG minerals originated from conflict-affected countries.

In 2016, our commitment was confirmed by Technicolor’s statement on Conflict Minerals, updated in 2020 and available in the CSR Documentation below.
