Corporate Responsibility

A10 Networks’ mission is to enable service providers and enterprises to deliver business-critical applications that are secure, available and efficient for multi-cloud transformation and 5G readiness. In our rapidly expanding digital economy, this has never been more relevant and critical. Our 7,000+ customers rely on us to help them drive better business outcomes now and into the future.

With our mission in mind, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and corporate governance, and to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce and customer and partner ecosystem. We believe these practices will deliver the highest value for our employees, customers, partners and shareholders. Our global footprint provides an additional level of sustainability for business performance and we ensure that we are driving this responsibility across all our global locations.

We use the code of conduct policies set forth by the Responsible Business Alliance as a guide and encourage all of our suppliers to do so as well. The alliance sets standards and practices for a social, environmental and ethical supply chain.

Further, A10 Networks has also established standards and practices by which its Board of Directors, executives and employees are obligated to adhere as outlined in the following documents, as well as those detailed in the Employee Handbook.

Environment

A10 Networks is committed to being an environmentally responsible member of our global community.

We work with our contract manufacturers and suppliers to maintain compliance with, for example, RoHS and REACH in the EU and elsewhere across the globe for other such environmental requirements. The company’s Conflict Minerals Supply Chain Policy outlines our practices and procedures with respect to human rights to ensure participants in our supply chain do not knowingly contribute to local conflict or human rights abuses. We expect our suppliers to comply with our policy on responsible sourcing of minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas and to cooperate with our diligence inquiries and requests for information and certification as may be required by us to comply with reporting and disclosure obligations to which we are subject from time to time.

Our corporate headquarters in San Jose, Calif. is compliant with the California Building Energy Efficiency Standards - Title 24 to reduce wasteful and unnecessary energy consumption. At our headquarters, we offer EV charging stations to our employees and visitors, and where applicable according to local requirements, we offer recycling and properly dispose of e-waste.  

Social

We fundamentally believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive environment for employees, as well as encouraging diversity and inclusion within the customer and partner ecosystem, and our community at large. We strive to create a corporate culture that values diverse backgrounds and innovative thinking. These are the hallmarks to the curiosity and creativity that drive customer innovation and shareholder value. We continually strive to offer training and employment opportunities that address both our business needs as well as employee growth.

Our Board of Directors believes that our board should be a diverse body, and our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee considers a broad range of backgrounds and experiences when selecting nominees for our board. Fifty percent of our directors currently self-identify as being from one or multiple diverse groups.

Finally, we are committed to providing a work environment free from unlawful harassment and we prohibit all employees from engaging in harassment whether directed toward other employees or non-employees with whom A10 has a business, service, or professional relationship.

Protecting Employees During the Pandemic

As stated in our public communication in March of 2020, protecting the health and safety of our employees is of the utmost concern during this crisis, and is continues to be a key focus in 2021. At the outset of the pandemic, we immediately followed all local shelter-in-place orders in each of the locations where we do business. We restricted all non-essential travel and cancelled participation in any large-scale events, including tradeshows and meetings. We continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. and all other local requirements where we do business across the global.

Governance

We continuously review and improve our corporate governance guidelines in response to changing requirements and feedback from employees, customers, partners, vendors and shareholders. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees of the Board of Directors, consisting entirely of independent directors, evaluates the appropriate governance practices as defined by law and industry best practice and takes those recommendations to the Board of Directors.

The company’s governance and code of conduct policies are outlined in the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Corporate Governance Guidelines, Whistleblower Policy and the Employee Handbook. Employees many submit concerns to generalcounsel@a10networks.com or via the company’s third-party hotline as noted the Employee Handbook.
