Doing Right

We foster a culture guided by the ethics of mutual respect, integrity and honesty. At Southwire, we are committed to supporting those values in every aspect of our business and working lives, and we promise transparency and responsiveness when challenges arise.

Southwire is seeking to ensure the highest standard of ethical business practices within all of our operations. Specifically, we have set a goal to achieve recognition on Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies list by 2025.

Ethics, Anti-Corruption & Transparency

In 2021, we further strengthened our ethics and compliance program by publishing and implementing our first Ethics and Compliance Program Charter, as well as our first Supplier Code of Conduct. These additions, along with existing program governance and policies, create a robust ethics and compliance system that allows Southwire to manage ethics, compliance and risk management goals responsibly.

Cybersecurity & Data Privacy

Southwire recognizes the evolving nature of the cyber-risk landscape, and we continuously enhance our data and information infrastructure security systems to prevent breakdown or security breaches of critical information.

In 2021, Southwire expanded end-user awareness training and increased the frequency of company-wide phishing assessments. We also expanded our security and threat detection capabilities by establishing a security operations center-as-a-service that provides 24/7 firewall, network device, critical infrastructure monitoring and endpoint detection.

Supplier Diversity

We also recognize that Doing Right includes supporting supplier diversity as an important aspect of a sustainable supply chain. Our Supplier Diversity program ensures that Southwire identifies qualified small businesses including those owned and operated by minorities, females or veterans; and provides opportunities to foster the development and advancement of diverse businesses, when and where practical. Our overall spending with small and diverse businesses has risen by 60% in the last five years, reaching $523 million for the year. In 2021, Southwire added 137 small or diverse firms to its list of authorized diverse suppliers, accounting for 35% of Southwire’s total supplier pool.
