Elisa becomes member of Joint Audit Cooperation of telecoms operators

Monday 9 September 2019 | 12:44 CET | News

Elisa said it has been invited to join the Joint Audit Cooperation (JAC) of telecommunication operators, who conduct combined corporate social responsibility (CSR) audits among ICT suppliers, thereby promoting sustainable sourcing.

JAC aims to verify, assess and develop CSR implementation at manufacturing centres of major multinational suppliers to the ICT industry. Members share resources and best practices.

Since its foundation, JAC has conducted more than 482 audits in 33 countries. Collaboration has significantly increased the number of audits and increased corrective actions, driving a higher CSR standard across the supply chain, said Elisa.

Susanna Kraft, vice president for procurement at Elisa, said the operator works with several thousands of suppliers and subcontractors globally. Supply chains are complex and often not very transparent. This makes active cooperation and collaboration with suppliers important to ensuring that quality, security and responsibility goals can be reached.

The JAC was founded in 2010 by Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom and Telecom Italia. It now has seventeen members, the others being AT&T, KPN, MTC, Orange, Proximus, Rogers, Swisscom, Telecom Italia, Telefonica, Telenor, Telia Company, Telstra, Veon, Verizon and Vodafone.
