Our expectations


Responsible Business Alliance (formerly known as the EICC)

In 2018, BT joined the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) as an affiliate member. The RBA is globally recognized as a leader in supply chain sustainability, which includes human rights, as well as conflict minerals, environmental sustainability, and many other existing and emerging issues. Its members include leaders from the electronics, retail and automotive sectors.

Joining the RBA underpins BT's commitment to maintain high ethical principles and to respect human rights. We expect our suppliers to do the same: our Sourcing With Human Dignity standard sets out our expectations on working conditions for everyone working in our supply chain.

The RBA is the world's largest industry coalition dedicated to electronics supply chain responsibility. Our membership will enable us to collaborate with other companies across the ICT sector on a variety of initiatives, such as Conflict Minerals, Sustainability, and Responsible Labour, and to share best practice.

BT agrees to actively support the Responsible Business Alliance and its mission, vision, bylaws, and the principles of the RBA code of conduct, in the spirit of common industry goals.
