Sustainability Report 2021 15 Sustainability Report 2021 15 Responsible Business Alliance Code of Conduct Applied Materials sets clear expectations for social responsibility in our supply chain, requiring our vendors and suppliers to comply with both our own Standards and the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) Code of Conduct. The RBA Code provides standards related to labor, health and safety, environment, ethics and management systems, including responsible minerals sourcing. Ethics Compliance and Training Applied Materials provides all our employees with training and reinforcement to support their ongoing obligations around ethics and compliance. Newly hired employees are assigned a Standards of Business Conduct training and certification course that covers our policies on conflicts of interest, intellectual property protection, anti-corruption, gifts, insider trading, supplier selection and treatment, speaking up and non-retaliation. Employees renew their training and certification to the Standards each year. Employees also have access to ongoing training in specific areas of ethics and compliance. In 2021, those included live localized anti-corruption training across our APAC region and micro-learning and awareness campaigns designed to provide process refreshers and support ethical decision-making. Responsibility and Integrity Week In April 2022, we held our annual Responsibility & Integrity Week to show Applied’s values in action. Conducted virtually, the week included events designed to raise awareness of themes, resources and best practices supporting our core value of Responsibility and Integrity, and featured insights from regional leaders and a fireside chat with Chief Legal Officer Teri Little and CFO Brice Hill. Over the course of the week, the programming attracted over 38,560 views and included cross-functional presenters from across our teams. In early 2022, we launched a new Inside Compliance channel on our internal Applied4You social media platform.
