BUSINESS ETHICS

In order to be socially responsible and to achieve success in the marketplace, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of business ethics including:

  • Business integrity
  • No improper advantage
  • Disclosure of information
  • Protection of intellectual property
  • Fair business, advertising and competition
  • Protection of identity

Our corporate code of business conduct and ethics (“Code of Conduct”) weaves that commitment into principles, standards and responsibilities that help guide our behavior and decision making. This Code of Conduct prohibits unethical behavior, such as conflicts of interest, kickbacks, bribery, fraud, improper accounting and the improper use of company assets or funds. It mandates compliance with the laws of the countries in which we do business. It also requires the protection of confidential information and intellectual property, and the selection of suppliers only in accordance with set business criteria.
