Commitment to Ethics

We reinforce our commitment to our ethics program in a number of ways, including a Business Ethics Helpline and website. Both are available at all times and accessible in numerous languages, from which all matters are investigated and resolved promptly, discreetly and professionally.

We strictly prohibit retaliation against anyone who raises an ethics or compliance issue in good faith.

Our employee ethics handbook, commonly known as the “Blue Book,” states our expectation that all employees conduct business in accordance with the law, our policies, our values and our business-ethics principles. We expect our suppliers, vendors, contractors and joint-venture partners to develop ethics and compliance programs consistent with our values.

Following are PDFs of the Blue Book, available in 17 languages, and the code of conduct for our board and financial professionals.
