Environmental, Social, and Governance

On the journey to our vision, we must continue to be a responsible corporate citizen of the world.

How Adtran Can Help

As we follow our vision to “enable a fully connected world," Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as well as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) are important to us. As more people are connected, work and life can be accomplished using fewer resources. On the journey to our vision, we must continue to be a responsible corporate citizen of the world.

We have established ESG and Sustainability programs and policies that encompass the elements of Environmental, Health & Safety, Ethics, Labor, and Management Systems in alignment with the ISO 26000 Guidelines. We are committed to operating in full compliance with the laws, rules and regulations of all the countries in which we operate. Adtran recognizes the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct (the “Code”) and actively pursues conformance to it and its standards in accordance with our management systems. Adtran further recognizes the Code as a total supply chain initiative. Highlights of our current practices in these areas are described below.

Environmental

As a good corporate citizen, we must limit the impact our efforts have on the environment and natural resources. The major components of environmental CSR are elimination of waste and emissions, maximizing energy efficiency and productivity and minimizing practices that can adversely affect utilization of natural resources by coming generations.

Social

We believe that our most valuable asset is our people. To ensure our company continues to succeed, our objective is to be able to recruit, hire and retain top talent. Our ability to attract and retain a high-quality workforce is dependent on our ability to maintain a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that provides opportunities for our employees to learn and grow in their careers. This is supported by strong compensation, benefits, community service, and other programs that enable employees to build connections within the community.

Governance

CSR is quickly becoming a part of Corporate Governance practices. Both Corporate Governance and CSR focus on the ethical practices in the business and the responsiveness of an organization to its stakeholders and the environment in which it operates and directly affect the performance of an organization.
