Founded in 2004 by a group of leading electronics companies, the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), formerly the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), is a nonprofit comprised of electronics, retail, auto and toy companies committed to supporting the rights and wellbeing of workers and communities worldwide affected by the global electronics supply chain. RBA members commit and are held accountable to a common Code of Conduct and utilize a range of RBA training and assessment tools to support continuous improvement in the social, environmental and ethical responsibility of their supply chains. In addition to setting and holding members accountable to core standards and providing training and assessment tools, the RBA regularly engages in dialogue and collaborations with workers, governments, civil society, investors and academia to gather the necessary range of perspectives and expertise to support and drive its members toward achieving the RBA mission and values of a responsible global electronics supply chain. In October 2017 the EICC became the RBA to reflect its expanded reach and influence. Today the RBA is comprised of more than 110 electronics companies with combined annual revenue of over $4.75 trillion, directly employing more than 6 million people. In addition to RBA members, thousands of companies that are Tier 1 suppliers to those members are required to implement the RBA Code of Conduct. More than 3.5 million people from over 120 countries contribute to the manufacture of RBA members' products.
