Tokyo, July 13, 2021 – Kioxia Holdings Corporation, a world leader in memory solutions, is pleased to announce that it has joined the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), a non-profit organization supporting the rights and well-being of workers and communities worldwide affected by the global supply chains.

 

As a member of the RBA, Kioxia will fully support its vision and goals and aim to continuously improve its own operations in accordance with the RBA Code of Conduct. Kioxia will also support and encourage its first-tier suppliers to do the same.

RBA’s Vision: A coalition of companies driving sustainable value for workers, the environment and business throughout the global supply chain.

RBA’s Mission: Members, suppliers and stakeholders collaborate to improve working and environmental conditions and business performance through leading standards and practices.

 

Kioxia will seek to adopt the RBA approach and tools in practical ways, not only by promoting CSR activities across its own group companies, but also by endeavoring to address CSR issues throughout its supply chain, in the spirit of the industry’s common goals.

 

Guided by its mission of uplifting the world with memory, Kioxia is committed to contributing to the resolution of a variety of social issues with cutting-edge products such as flash memory and SSDs, to bring the value of “memory” to people across the world.
