Ethics & Compliance

Acting with Absolute Integrity

Absolute Integrity means we are committed to honest and ethical business practices in our dealings with customers, business partners, investors, communities and each other. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides the framework for these behaviors and is available in 13 different languages.  

Our Code is organized by focus areas to make it easy for our employees to use it to answer questions. It also includes important ESG and inclusion and diversity considerations, discussion around the use of social media, and information on the roles managers and leaders play in building awareness about ethical behavior.
