A Safe Workplace​​

To maintain a clean and risk-free work environment, contractors will do their due diligence to adopt reasonable measures to avoid workplace hazards and disasters. All contractors will keep facilities under these standards to protect the safety interests of employees.​

Environmental Impact​​

Observing the BIONIC mission statement, contracted factories will be expected to go above and beyond the minimum regulatory guidelines as stated by country law. To respect local communities, employee health, and minimize our ecological footprint, BIONIC factories will establish unprecedented restrictions to ensure the least possible amount of emissions, hazardous waste, and water discharge. In turn, contractors are expected to continually work to improve on these guidelines, aiming for the least possible amount of environmental impact.​

Adherence to The Code​

Pre-requisite to working alongside BIONIC is the adherence and respect to these guidelines and any additional stipulations which they may incur. Further, all contractors will be subject to monitoring and verification of the code as established in the aforementioned principles. The code shall be made available in all workplaces in the local language of all employees, with the information easily available and aware to all for whom it affects.​
