CrowdStrike expects its suppliers to conduct their business with the highest ethical standards of conduct, social responsibility, and compliance with law. Accordingly, suppliers must avoid activities that conflict with, or give the appearance of conflicting with these principles and with the interest of CrowdStrike. Consistent with these values, Suppliers must act and perform their duties ethically, honestly, and with integrity in an honest and trustworthy manner when dealing with CrowdStrike and its partners, customers, and other third parties.
CrowdStrike values and promotes diversity in its supplier community. We strive to obtain the best possible products and services to support our business regardless of the legally protected characteristic or status of the supplier’s owners or employees. Where possible, CrowdStrike will select its suppliers among small business vendors, as well as minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned and LGBTQ-owned suppliers.
Workforce Diversity / Equal Employment Opportunity
CrowdStrike is committed to a policy of equal employment opportunity and workforce diversity. CrowdStrike does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, religious creed, sex, national origin, ancestry, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, disability, citizenship, family care status, military caregiver status, veteran or military status, marital status, domestic partner status, status as a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, and genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, or other non-merit factors. CrowdStrike provides reasonable accommodation to applicants with disabilities where appropriate, to include within the application and hiring process, with determinations made on a case-by-case basis.
In accordance with the above policy, CrowdStrike values and promotes diversity not only in its workplace, but in its suppliers and community as well. CrowdStrike expects its suppliers to uphold and support equal employment opportunities and workforce diversity and to strictly prohibit discrimination or harassment of any kind on the basis of such characteristics or status.
Child and Forced Labor
CrowdStrike’s policy on Child Labor and Forced Labor is based on International Labor Organization conventions and national laws. CrowdStrike restricts employment to those who have reached the age of 16 years or older, or the local minimum employment age, or the mandatory school age, whichever is higher. CrowdStrike has an explicit ban on the use of any forced labor or exploitative working conditions.
CrowdStrike requires all suppliers to comply with applicable child labor laws and has a zero-tolerance policy for suppliers that use or support child labor or forced labor.
Sustainable Procurement and Environmental Footprint
CrowdStrike believes that businesses play a vital role in protecting the planet from the threats of climate change, water shortages, depletion of natural resources, and air pollution, just to name a few. CrowdStrike is proud to advance environmentally sustainable and ethical procurement by embracing the use of third-party resources shared among multiple customers for efficient data processing and scalable data storage, and by distributing its software offerings and intelligence products almost exclusively in electronic format. Our adoption and expansion of networking capabilities, to include our promotion of shared big data analytics, significantly reduces the environmental footprint of CrowdStrike while also helping to reduce the environmental impact of each of its customers.
CrowdStrike encourages its suppliers to look at methods to adopt and expand methods and operations to advance environmental sustainability and ethical procurement to reduce the supplier’s overall environmental impact.
Measurement of Environmental Impact
CrowdStrike prides itself in being an energy efficient corporation, with few direct energy costs (primarily relating to office electricity consumption and employee commuter carbon emissions) and modest indirect energy costs (primarily that portion of electricity attributable to CrowdStrike’s use of third-party cloud computing and telecommunications services as well as business travel associated primarily with CrowdStrike’s professional services team). CrowdStrike has minimal or no direct environmental impact in the areas of water use, waste disposal, transport, construction materials, or industrial chemical use.
In an effort to reduce impact on the environment, CrowdStrike encourages its suppliers to also become energy efficient to reduce their own environmental impact and that of CrowdStrike’s supply chain. To further this policy, CrowdStrike may, from time to time, request reports or information from suppliers describing their efforts to reduce their impact on the environment, including, through modernization, efforts to reduce water consumption, energy consumption, and waste, and/or improvement in processes.
