Corporate Social Responsibility
Just as we continually strive to create high-performing and innovative products while conducting our global business in an ethical, honest and legal manner, we also make sure we act with integrity and respect on social issues important to our employees, shareholders and customers. This includes raising awareness with our employees and within our supply chain about how we can make the right decisions on issues like human rights, product safety and work environments affecting those who help us make our products.
"We conduct our global business honestly, ethically and legally, believing that good ethics is good business." This is the foundation of Callaway's policy of respecting internationally recognized human rights throughout our global operations; a policy that considers the principles described in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).Company’s Human Rights Policy

Corporate and Supplier Codes Of Conduct
Company Code of Conduct
The Company's Code of Conduct is part of Callaway Golf Company's effort to conduct its global business legally. The Code applies to all board members, officers and employees of the Company and its subsidiaries. All Company employees are required to comply with the Company's Code of Conduct, which includes provisions designed to address the principle that child, prison, or forced labor are not permitted at any Company supplier operation. The Company's Code of Conduct is applicable throughout the world, and the Company trains all employees, including management, on these standards as part of new hire training for all incoming employees and ongoing training for all company employees on a periodic basis. Employees in key business functions that may interact with government officials also receive a more robust anti-corruption training, which is currently created by Thomson Reuters. Additionally, those who have direct responsibility for supply chain management have ongoing training that addresses education on human trafficking and slavery prohibitions within the product supply chain.Read More Company’s Code of Conduct
Supplier Code of Conduct
The Company has also adopted and implemented a "Supplier Code of Conduct." The Supplier Code of Conduct describes the business practices and employment standards applicable to the Company’s direct suppliers on a global basis.Supplier Code of Conduct
Callaway Golf strives to follow the applicable law on socially responsible business practices among our employees and throughout our supply chain. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is designed to educate our suppliers about the importance of providing safe working conditions, treating workers with respect and using responsible manufacturing processes. If you have any questions about our supplier responsibility efforts, please send inquiries here.
The Company's audit program evaluates suppliers' compliance with the Company's Supplier Code of Conduct. Various types of announced audits are conducted under this program, including onsite audits conducted or attended by Company personnel, collaborative or self-audits, and periodic third-party on-site audits of practices and underlying management systems. If deficiencies are identified, suppliers are directed to produce corrective action plans. The corrective action plans typically outline how a supplier will resolve issues uncovered in audits. If any compliance issues are identified, the Company may terminate the supplier relationship or will require action by the supplier to rectify the problem within a designated timeframe. Currently, site audits are scheduled at most direct supplier sites every two years. These audits are conducted by the Company or by a third party auditing company. The audits are semi-announced audits. This means that the suppliers are given a window of time when the audit will take place, but the exact date of the audit within the timeframe is unannounced.Read More Social Compliance Summary
