CommScope’s strong focus on corporate social responsibility
(CSR) has been recognized for a third consecutive year with a Gold CSR rating by
EcoVadis, a global leader in monitoring, benchmarking and enabling
sustainability in global supply chains.
CommScope earned an overall score that indicates
confirmed CSR engagement, putting us in the top 12 percent of all companies
assessed, and in the top eight percent within our industry category
(communication equipment manufacturing).
In granting Gold status to CommScope, EcoVadis cited our
structured and proactive CSR approach, our policies and actions on major CSR
issues, and our strong reporting on CSR performance. CommScope customers and

CSR is a high priority for CommScope. Most broadly, CSR is a
philosophy that embraces our core company values and ensures we produce smart
solutions that respect our people and our planet. CommScope earned the gold rating based on the CSR policies, programs and
reporting we have in place across the company.
EcoVadis subject matter experts evaluate a company’s CSR
system by looking at seven management indicators. Their analysis takes into
account 21 CSR criteria that are contained under four themes:
involving energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; materials, chemicals
and waste; sustainable consumption and more.
practices and human rights: regarding employee health and safety; working
conditions; discrimination and harassment and more.
- Fair business
practices: regarding corruption and bribery, anti-competitive practices,
and responsible information management.
procurement: supplier environmental practices; supplier social practices.
The Ecovadis methodology and criteria are in line with
international CSR standards including the Global Reporting
Initiative, United Nations
Global Compact, and ISO 26000.
A strong commitment to corporate social
responsibility is often a strong indicator of a well-managed company, and many
companies use CSR ratings as part of their supplier decision-making
process. We are proud of our Gold CSR
recognition and are committed to continuous improvement in this area. We care
about the legacy CommScope will leave to future generations.
