Supplier social responsibility

Kyndryl is committed to social and environmental responsibility in our operations and in our supply chain. We share a responsibility with our suppliers to protect workers, communities, and the environment.Our goal is to protect and respect the human rights of all people across our operations and share related best practices with our suppliers and employees. We commit to proactively avoiding human rights abuses and avoiding complicity in abuses by other participants in our supply chain.

As a technology services company, Kyndryl’s success depends on the physical and psychological safety of each of our employees and the suppliers who support our operations, products and services. You can read more about our commitment to human rights in our Human Rights Policy.

Kyndryl works with suppliers to procure and deliver products and/or services that can help reduce our environmental impact and can be reused, recycled, or disposed in an environmentally sound manner.

Kyndryl is a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), an industry coalition which is dedicated to corporate social responsibility.

Kyndryl Supplier Code Of Conduct follows the RBA code and we ask our suppliers to sign it during onboarding.
