A responsible supply chain

We work closely with our suppliers to create a high-quality, reliable supply chain that supports our business objectives and meets our high ethical standards. Everyone involved in purchasing at Gemalto follows a well-established social responsibility evaluation process and achieves annual CSR objectives.

Ethics and governance

Our business is built on trust, so it's critical that we conduct our activities with honesty and integrity, comply with best practice and meet the highest standards of corporate governance. We have a number of codes and charters which underpin our management practices and professional standards: our Code of Ethics, signed by all employees, our anti-fraud policy, our whistle-blowing line, our Purchasing CSR charter.​​​​

Identifying and managing risk

Effective risk management is integral to our service and our culture, and it is fundamental to building trust in our ability to provide secure solutions and devices. We see effective risk management as a core responsibility to our stakeholders – including our customers, their end users, investors, employees and others.

Control and compliance

We manage our business through a number of well-established management systems, including risk, security, environmental and quality management systems. 

Monitoring and verification
