Political and Public Influence
On its webpage, the company proclaims itself as “committed to conform laws, prevent pollution and economize resource, focusing on safety and health, execute total communication and eternal improvement. Primax provides products and services friendly to the global environments in terms of human safety and health”.
The article refers to a campaign called “Clean up your computer”. When the article was published, the campaign had been launched 6 months before. According to the article, the campaign was very useful not just for its main environmental proposal but also for putting the issue of labor standards on the agenda of the three leader computer giants (Primax Electronics being one of them). The three of them adopted a code of conduct and are were implementing it by 2004. However, the codes still don´t match international UN standards.
