Ethics and Business Conduct

Our dedication to business ethics is supported by our Core Value of Integrity, which means doing the right thing, always. Strong ethics are essential to our success and we depend on every employee’s dedication to engage in ethical behavior.

  • Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

    Senior management has established a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (Code), which is available on our website for all employees and external parties to view. We expect all our employees to perform their work with integrity, and we provide regular training on compliance with the Code. This Code sets expectations and standards for ethical and moral behavior and covers topics, including, but not limited to, compliance with laws, conflict of interest, fair competition, and non-discrimination. All employees are required to review and acknowledge the Code upon hiring and on a biennial basis.

  • Ethics Hotline

    Boardwalk’s Ethics Hotline is available for all employees to anonymously report ethics violations and concerns. The hotline is managed by a third-party provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All calls that are received through the hotline are confidential and are investigated using appropriate protocols, with the results communicated to various parties, as appropriate and on a confidential basis. No substantiated ethics violations or concerns were reported to our ethics hotline in 2021.

Our industry is heavily regulated.
