Corporate Social Responsibility
Just as we continually strive to create high-performing and innovative products, we also seek to follow the law 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 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).

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.

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.
View the 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 to email@example.com.
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.

Commitment to Community
Making a difference where we live and work.
We don't just work here; we live here, play here and are part of the San Diego County community. Following the lead of our late Founder, Ely Callaway, Callaway Golf believes it's important to build more than just great golf equipment; we're also passionate about building great communities and making a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors—especially those in need. The Callaway Golf Company Foundation and the Callaway Golf Company Employee Community Giving Program are two ways we're working to make a difference.
Each month since 1992, Callaway Golf employees and their family members have volunteered with a local non-profit organization. These projects, which are coordinated by a volunteer steering committee, have focused on a variety of charitable endeavors, including improving the environment, youth empowerment, helping homeless and disadvantaged, animal care, and military support. If you are a non-profit in need of volunteers, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to discuss your volunteer needs with you.
The Callaway Golf Company Employee Community Giving Program will consider donations to events for certain U.S. nonprofit organizations within the target groups listed below. Please note that donations are subject to product availability and quantity limitations and not all requests for product donations can be fulfilled. Callaway is unable to fulfill requests for specific products or models.
Established Targets for Event Donations
- Youth - Improving the lives of young people in need or at-risk, primarily through the building of life-skills.
- Health - Providing access to essential health services for non-insured or under-insured individuals and families.
- Military - Providing support and services to wounded warrior programs.
In order to ensure availability for the target groups described above, Callaway Golf is unable to provide event donations to non-profit organizations that are not specifically focused on at-risk youth or under-insured individuals and families. Additionally, due to the large volume of requests, we are only able to consider chapters of national organizations located where we have a Callaway Golf Office. National Organization Examples include: American Cancer Association, Heart Association, Boys and Girls Club.
