Business Ethics

无论在何时何地开展业务,我们都致力于坚守最高的法律和道德标准。 Our Code of Conduct applies to all Ecolab directors, officers and employees and serves as a guide for how to act and make ethical decisions in compliance with the Code and the laws of the countries where we do business.

Our Code of Conduct was updated in 2023 to enhance ease of functionality for our employees and to emphasize our company's values. Our annual goal is to have 100% of global employees, including all senior managers, complete a training course and certify compliance.2023年,我们实现了99%的全球完成率。

Employees have the option to report a Code concern to their manager, the Human Resources, Compliance or Law departments, or Ecolab's third-party Code of Conduct helpline or web reporting service, which are utilized by internal and external reporters to convey concerns and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Reports of potential Code of Conduct violations are thoroughly investigated, and appropriate actions are taken or mitigation steps are put in place. We also have a whistleblower program, which ensures that reports are investigated in a timely manner and consistent action is taken based on the results of the investigation.
