Xandex formalized that long held environmental commitment through certification to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. Xandex Received certification to ISO 14001:2015 in December, 2018 and was recertified effective December 20, 2021.
Xandex Inc. Adheres To The Responsible Business Alliance Code Of Conduct – Ethics Policy as the foundation of our Business Ethics Policy.
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.
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.
