VTech's sustainability vision is to create sustainable value for the lives of people and protect the planet for the future generations.
VTech's sustainability mission is to integrate economic growth, environmental protection and social responsibility in our business strategies to design, manufacture and supply innovative and high quality products for the wellbeing of people and benefits of society, aiming to drive sustainable value for our stakeholders and the communities.
In order to achieve the sustainability vision and mission, VTech has developed a 5-year Sustainability Plan 2025, focusing on increasing the use of sustainable materials in our products, recycling our products in a responsible way, increasing the use of renewable energy and reducing the natural resources consumption in our production process, as well as stepping up our efforts to use more eco-friendly transportation modes in our supply chain management.
We have developed our sustainability strategies and programmes based on our five sustainability pillars – Governance and Business Ethics, Product Responsibilities and Value Chain Management, Environment, Our People and Society.
Governance and Business Ethics
VTech ensures its corporate governance structure meets the applicable laws and regulations and industry best practice with effective internal control and risk management systems. We also uphold the highest ethical standards of business integrity and foster a culture of compliance throughout the Company.
Product Responsibilities and Value Chain Management
VTech strives not only to provide high quality products and comply with the highest product quality and safety standards, but also incorporate sustainability concepts into product design for the well-being of our customers and the society. A Supply Chain Management System is also in place to ensure the implementation of sustainable supply chain practice throughout the Company.
VTech has developed "Climate Change Strategy" to assess and address the potential impacts of climate change on its sustainable growth through the implementation of high performance production chain, green manufacturing and sustainable logistics practices.
VTech aims to provide a supportive, pleasant and healthy workplace for our employees, and to foster a caring community in our working environment. We care for our employees and recognise that having good staff relations and a motivated workforce play a vital role in the Company's efficient operations.
VTech uses its expertise and resources to support the communities in which it operates, focusing on supporting people in need, collaborating with local charities, providing training opportunities for young people, nourishing an innovative environment and developing a healthy and green community.
