We're deeply committed to conducting our business responsibly, communicating openly and acting with integrity. Our high ethical standards keep our company accountable to stakeholders and aligned with our core business values in everything we do.
Strong governance and ethics are a proud part of our heritage, and we constantly push ourselves to be even better. Our board of directors and CEO set the tone for our ethical culture. We measure our success not only by our results, but also by how we achieve those results. Beyond complying with laws and regulations, we enforce our Code of Conduct and implement best practices to govern our operations. We also continuously refine our ethics and compliance policies, processes and employee trainings.
Playing fairly and doing the right thing is at the heart of who we are as individuals and as a Company. Our Code of Conduct outlines our core values and remains the foundation that guides us in our decisions.
