Ethics and Business Conduct

Our core value of integrity supports our dedication to business ethics. Strong ethics and compliance with all applicable laws and regulations are essential to our success, and we require every employee to engage in ethical behavior.

  • Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

    Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets expectations and standards for ethical and moral behavior. It covers topics including, but not limited to, compliance with laws, conflict of interest, fair competition and non-discrimination. We expect all our employees to perform their work with integrity, and we provide regular training on compliance with the Code, which includes reporting procedures for employees to communicate concerns formally or informally regarding misconduct, illegal or unethical behavior, or Code violations. All employees are required to review and acknowledge the Code upon hiring and on a biennial basis.

  • Ethics Hotline

    Our management has established and communicated the Ethics Hotline Policy to all employees. Our ethics hotline allows employees to report ethics violations and concerns anonymously. The hotline is managed by a third-party provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and management has established and communicated an ethics hotline policy to all employees. All calls to the hotline are initially reviewed by our General Counsel and other members of senior management as needed. All calls received through the hotline are confidential and investigated using appropriate protocols, with the results communicated to appropriate parties. No material ethics violations or concerns were reported to our ethics hotline in 2022.
