CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

 
Compliance

Priority issue for: NVIDIA, customers, shareholders.

Compliance is covered in NVIDIA’s Code of Conduct, available on our Policies page.

We view compliance as the activities we undertake, and the systems we have in place, to ensure continual adherence to all applicable laws and requirements from governments and our customers, whether related to environmental issues, social issues or regulations.

Governmental compliance is a critical component of NVIDIA’s business strategy because it involves our license to operate in markets where we want to manufacture and sell our products, manage offices and hire employees. We comply with all mandatory governmental regulations that apply to us in the communities in which we do business. We also comply with our customers’ requirements so we can meet our contractual obligations.

But this legal compliance is simply the baseline that establishes the minimum standards to which we hold ourselves accountable. In addition, we are committed to comporting ourselves in accordance with the highest ethical standards, regardless of whether there is a legal requirement to do so.

We employ social and environmental compliance engineers in our worldwide operations organization. These employees manage issues such as human rights, end-of-life recycling, hazardous substances and conflict minerals. Our global Legal and Human Resources teams receive regular guidance from legal counsel and industry associations on issues related to bribery, ethics, and hiring and labor practices. The Sales Operations team oversees our customers’ environmental, social and governance requirements and works cross-functionally to ensure the compliance of all related teams.

In all of these functions, we have established mechanisms to maintain active compliance, assess our performance and anticipate impending requirements and regulations.
