Apple's Bengaluru supplier achieves zero waste in record time

Apple releases 2018 Supplier Responsibility Report, highlights progress in India

Out of the 756 suppliers spanning 30 different countries, 197 suppliers were audited for the first time.

This photo taken on May 27, 2010 shows Chinese workers in the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, in southern China's Guangdong province. Issues range from falsifying working hours to harmful environmental practices. The company found 44 core violations including fabricated work hours data. Collectively, workers in the Philippines gave up over $1 million in order to maintain their jobs at a contractor facility.

Compliance with the Apple's policy of 60-hour work week also dropped to 94%, from 98% in 2016. Apple said when it finds that a supplier falsified data, it notifies the chief executive of the offending supplier and puts the supplier on probation until a fix is implemented. Two of the violations last were over the use of underage labor.

Apple also said its efforts to create a greener supply chain "resulted in significant progress in 2017". "High performers" with scores of more than 90 rose to a record high of 59% from 47% the year before.

Customers queue inside an Apple store in Hong Kong on September 25, 2015. In both cases, the underage workers were immediately sent back home, enrolled in their choice of schools as they received wages from the violating supplier.

The report comes after child labor concerns emerged over the company's resourcing of cobalt, an ingredient used in the batteries used to power the iPhone.

Apple's annual Supplier Responsibility Progress Report has been in operation since 2007 and seeks to improve "working conditions at supplier facilities, protect the planet and ensure responsible sourcing".

Overall, supplier compliance was up year-over-year. The company aims to reach 1 million women at its supplies around the world by 2020.

More employees of Apple's manufacturing suppliers broke the company's rules on working hours and overtime previous year, as it raced to overcome production delays and meet initial demand for the new iPhone X. Constantly raising the bar, finding problems and fixing them, providing advancement opportunities and reporting transparently are fundamental to Apple's supplier responsibility efforts.

"A new preventive health care curriculum is encouraging women to focus on their personal health, and hopefully share that knowledge with their families and communities". The Factory Line Leader Program bridges the gap between skills and employment by providing practical vocational skills and guaranteed internships with an Apple supplier, as well as long-term, full-time employment opportunities.

On Wednesday, Apple also issued its conflict minerals report, which is required by United States securities regulators.
