Corporate Social Responsibility

Since its founding in 1981, Xandex has conducted business according to a set of guiding principles, one of which defines the company's commitment to the well being of its employees, the environment and the community in which we live. Xandex is currently working steadily towards formalizing that long held environmental commitment through certification to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Registration is expected to occur in 2018.

Xandex supports many non-profit organizations who serve our local Petaluma - Sonoma County, California community and the larger San Francisco Bay area. These organizations, through their many volunteers and staff provide invaluable social and human services that improve quality of life and expand social justice in our community. View a gallery listing some of these worthy organizations HERE.

Xandex is also committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, business ethics and environmental responsibility, as embodied in the Corporate Social Responsibility / Conflict Minerals Policy and Export Policy, stated here.

Environmental Policy

Xandex is committed to environmental stewardship. The Xandex management team believes in reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral and fundamental part of our business strategy and operating methods. It is our priority to encourage our customer, suppliers and all business associates to do the same.

Corporate Social Responsibility/Conflict Minerals Policy

Xandex, Inc. strives to meet the highest standards of business ethics and corporate governance. We actively promote human rights and protection of the natural environment; we support the communities we impact.

We are committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values around human rights, business ethics and environmental responsibility. We expect all our suppliers to abide by the requirements of Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct, which prohibits human rights abuses and unethical practices. We also require all suppliers to comply with applicable legal standards and requirements.

On August 22, 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued the final conflict minerals rule under Section 1502 the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). The Conflict Minerals Rule requires publicly traded companies to report annually the presence of conflict minerals (tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold, or “3TG”) originating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries (“Covered Countries”).

Although Xandex, as a private company, is exempt from the Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals Rule, we support the goal of ending violence, human rights violations and environmental devastation in the Covered Countries and are committed to sourcing 3TG from sources other than the Covered Countries.

Xandex will assist our customers in implementing their conflict minerals programs. We strive to work cooperatively with our customers and supply chain partners in implementing our conflict minerals compliance program.

Xandex requires all our suppliers to provide us with completed conflict minerals declarations using the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template and will consider disqualifying suppliers that fail to comply with this Policy.

Xandex Export Policy

Xandex is committed to comply with the United States Export Administration Act (EAA), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and the International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), along with all other United States Government export regulations and like laws and regulations of all other countries in which Xandex and its affiliates, engage in export of products or technology. No exports contravening such regulations may be undertaken or participated in under any circumstances.
