One of the most important aspects of sustainability at Milestone is ensuring the suppliers we do business with act in a social and environmentally responsible manner.
We also understand it's our responsibility to work with our suppliers to achieve the best possible outcome. As such, we have a dedicated team within the supply chain that focuses on ensuring suppliers' practices incorporate fair treatment and pay for their employees, consider the impact their actions have on the environment, and ensure the security of our supply chain at origin.
Ultimately, our goal is to provide a world-class product in a socially responsible manner. Here are some of the ways we do this:
Milestone has implemented a thorough CSR audit program to evaluate and monitor the CSR performance of our suppliers. In building sustainable relationships with suppliers, we look to them to share in the responsibility and continually look for ways to improve their CSR management system.
With strict security process controls both in the U.S. and at our overseas suppliers, Milestone has earned Tier 2 C-TPAT validation from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. C-TPAT is a voluntary government-business initiative to build cooperative relationships that strengthen and improve overall international supply chain and U.S. border security.
Milestone, in conjunction with a retail partner, supports the EICC and its work to ensure safety and responsible practices in the electronics industry supply chain.
Milestone supports the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010, a law designed to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in the supply chain.
