In year 2013 JAC, in dialogue with a range of stakeholders, developed and published the JAC Supply Chain Sustainability Guidelines that form the set of common requirements expected from the ICT industry.
The JAC Guidelines include also a defined set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to help suppliers measure their compliance with respect to the defined requirements.
The Guidelines have recently been updated (version 02). In this document JAC’s requirements on Responsible Sourcing of Minerals have been clarified in more detail, and there has been the addition of a set of environmental KPIs, that come together with some tools to enable organisations to calculate their energy consumption and carbon footprint. These new KPIs add to the already existing ones on Working Hours and Fair Wage and even more are currently under development.
