As a global distributor of Manufactured Electronic goods, Speakerbus Technology is committed to operating in a socially responsible way and promotes total transparency to aid our customers with all reporting requirements as we do utilise some of the materials in the manufacturing of our products.

Speakerbus Technology do not directly procure the minerals so we rely on the information from our suppliers and we work closely with them to ensure the materials are responsibly sourced.

Our Expectation of Suppliers

  • Adopt a policy of responsible sourcing of mineral and pass this requirement through its supply chain;
  • Implement due diligence processes to support that policy;
  • Source materials from socially responsible suppliers.

Information from manufactures is becoming more readily available all of the time and Speakerbus Technology will continue its earnest efforts to facilitate the timely flow of information as it becomes available.
