Corporate Responsibility

The Verizon Supplier
Code of Conduct

We take pride in our strong relationships with suppliers, and strive to promote a mutually beneficial business relationship based on the highest standards of ethical conduct.

The Verizon Supplier Code of Conduct was revised in May 2013 to clarify our expectations of how suppliers do business. The revised code:

  • Explicitly prohibits the use of child labor, forced labor, and discrimination.

  • Explicitly protects the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining, pursuant to local laws.

  • Adds a section on Conflict Minerals: Suppliers are expected to ensure that products supplied to Verizon do not contain metals derived from tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold that finance or benefit armed groups in or near the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

  • Adds language manifesting Verizon’s intent to engage with suppliers on compliance and enforcement

To submit an inquiry or concern regarding these standards, contact the Office of Ethics and Business Conduct through the VZ Ethics and EEO GuideLine at 800-856-1885 (U.S.), (+)800-0-624-0007 (International), or visit
