NEW YORK (

TheStreet

) --

Apple

(AAPL) - Get Apple Inc. Report

has issued a comprehensive list of the companies it works with for the first time as well as revealing a supplier code of conduct.

The move follows criticism of the company over the past few years that some of its partners treat their workers poorly.

"Apple is committed to the highest standards of social responsibility across our worldwide supply chain," the company

said on its Web site

. "We insist that all of our suppliers provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and use environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Our actions -- from thorough site audits to industry-leading training programs -- demonstrate this commitment."

The

list of suppliers

includes many recognizable names of publicly traded U.S. companies, such as

Intel

(INTC) - Get Intel Corporation Report

,

TheStreet Recommends

Advanced Micro Devices

(AMD) - Get Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Report

,

Nvidia

(NVDA) - Get NVIDIA Corporation Report

and

Qualcomm

(QCOM) - Get Qualcomm Inc Report

.

The company said the suppliers on the list "represent 97 percent of Apple's procurement expenditures for materials, manufacturing, and assembly of Apple's products worldwide."

Apple shares closed Friday at $419.81, down 0.4%. The stock has risen nearly 21% in the past year, and it hit a new all-time intraday high of $427.75 on Jan. 9. On Friday, the company had a

rough time of it

opening its flagship store in China.
