Detection Technology, a global provider of X-ray detector solutions, has published a Code of Conduct to reinforce its commitment to grow sustainably. Detection Technology acknowledges the Code of Conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), and has aligned its own Code with that of RBA. The RBA Code is a set of social, environmental and ethical industry standards, that reference international laws and practices, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ILO International Labor Standards, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and ISO and SA standards.

“Our business is driven by performance as well as integrity. We believe that sustainability is fundamental to the success of our business. As our aim is to provide a unique customer experience without exceptions, sustainability has played a significant role in our business for years. The newly published DT Code sums up the company practices conveniently. It reflects our values, expresses our commitment to improve our customers business and improve our activities sustainably, and guides all of our employees and business partners,” says Hannu Martola, President and CEO at Detection Technology.

The company’s quality, environmental, business ethics, labor and health and safety policies form the DT Code in order to ensure that working conditions are safe, workers are treated with respect and dignity, and business operations are environmentally responsible and conducted ethically. Detection Technology manages the policies via its ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certified management systems.

“The RBA framework that has been introduced to the electronics industry suits our business very well. For us, a business-driven yet ethical approach is everything. Excellence in quality, gender equality, and managing of people and cultural diversity are key enablers for succeeding in sustainable business.”

The Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), is a nonprofit coalition of companies dedicated to improve social, environmental and ethical conditions in their global supply chains. The RBA was founded in 2004.
