Suppliers are critical partners in GE’s value chain. As GE’s businesses have globalized, so has our supply chain, including in locations where environment, health, safety, labor, human rights and other practices can be problematic.  We expect our suppliers to obey the laws that require fair treatment of workers, a safe and healthy work environment, and environmental protection.
