Supplier Code of Conduct

Vertiv expects its suppliers to project its values and principles, to stay current with technology, to act with integrity, and to treat people and the environment with respect. These actions reflect Vertiv’s priorities. In this way, we partner with only the highest caliber suppliers that demonstrate social responsibility and a commitment to fairness and honesty.

Vertiv has established a Supplier Code of Conduct and we expect each supplier to adhere to its principles. Vertiv may discontinue its relationship with a supplier that fails to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct.

Efforts to Prevent Slavery and Human Trafficking

Vertiv is committed to complying with all applicable laws and employment regulations where we operate and does not engage in forced labor or human trafficking.  Vertiv’s policies oppose—and we prohibit our suppliers from using—any form of forced, bonded, or indentured labor.

Human Rights Policy

Conflict Minerals

Vertiv supports efforts to end the human suffering and environmental impact that have been associated with mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. Tracing the origins of minerals throughout a global supply chain is a complex process, and this can only be accomplished with the cooperation and support of a vast number of industries and stakeholders.

Vertiv continues to work with its suppliers and other stakeholders to develop and implement policies and systems to reduce the risk that minerals in our supply chain come from mines that finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC region, and Vertiv expects our supply base to acquire minerals from responsible sources.

A Commitment to Diversity

At Vertiv, we are a company engineered to deliver solutions for critical technologies.  And those solutions often come from having a variety of viewpoints and perspectives at the table.  So it should come as no surprise that there's a spirit of inclusion found in everything we do.  Having a wider range of experiences to draw from doesn't just make us a diverse company.  It makes us a better company.

Vertiv works hard to create a global workplace that supports and promotes diversity, embraces inclusion and cultivates respect for the individual.  We believe that bringing together bright, enthusiastic, and talented people from various backgrounds promotes the birth of new ideas and an exciting energy level.

As a result, we have an active program to recruit and hire women and minorities to our management ranks.  We seek to create an employer of choice environment in terms of promotions, transfers, compensation, benefits, career mentoring, company-sponsored training, tuition assistance and social and recreational programs for our employees.

Vertiv's Equal Employment Opportunity policy ensures that there will be no discrimination or harassment against an employee or applicant on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, national origin, veteran status or any other factor considered unlawful by applicable laws and regulations.


Vertiv's world-class leadership and focus on corporate responsibility are embodied in our continual enhancements to our quality management systems: 

Vertiv Corporate EHS Policy

Our corporate EHS Policy includes minimum requirements and standards for EHS across the company. It covers all Vertiv employees, as well as contractors and members of the public who are on company premises.

The mission of Vertiv’s EHS Team is to protect Vertiv and Vertiv’s employees from environmental, health, and safety risks so they can be prosperous and achieve their goals.

A robust ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) system is critical to that mission while allowing Vertiv to be both commercially successful and socially responsible.
