We abide by the laws of the United States and other countries in which we do business, we strive to be good citizens and we take responsibility for our actions.
We recognize that our success as an enterprise depends on the talent, skills and expertise of our people and our ability to function as a tightly integrated team. We appreciate our diversity and believe that respect – for our colleagues, customers, partners, and all those with whom we interact – is an essential element of all positive and productive business relationships.
