- Our Businesses
Our culture of ethics ensures that each of us at General Dynamics acts with integrity, honesty and respect for others and our communities.
General Dynamics is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and integrity in everything we do. Our employees understand the key role they play in preserving our reputation for excellence, and they take this responsibility seriously.
Our company-wide ethics program, introduced in 1986, provides tools and resources that help our employees do the right thing. With these resources available at all times and mandatory training every year, we give our employees the support they need to understand and uphold our standards of ethical business conduct.
Our Standards of Business Ethics and Conduct employee handbook, commonly known as the "Blue Book," sets out our expectation that all employees conduct business in accordance with the law, our policies, our values and our business ethics principles. We also expect our suppliers, vendors, contractors and joint-venture partners to develop ethics and compliance programs consistent with our values.
Finally, we reinforce our ethics program with resources and tools like our Ethics Helpline, available at all times in numerous languages. We investigate and resolve all matters promptly, discreetly and professionally. We strictly prohibit retaliation against anyone who raises an ethics or compliance issue in good faith.
Below, you'll find PDFs of the code of conduct for our Board of Directors and financial professionals, as well as copies of the "Blue Book" in 17 languages.
