We want to do things the right way and have clear standards for behavior in our business relationships. These help us ensure fair and ethical behavior and maintain our culture of respect and inclusion.
Highest ethical standards
At Atlas Copco, we stand for integrity, fairness and respect in all our interactions. How we conduct ourselves globally is more than just a matter of upholding regulations, policy and law; it's a reflection of our core values. We have an unwavering commitment to the highest ethical behavior, including zero tolerance for human rights abuses, bribery and corruption.
Everyone in the Atlas Copco Group is required to complete trainings every year in what it means to live our values and how to handle ethical dilemmas. New employees are required to sign our Code of Conduct when they join Atlas Copco and we must all reaffirm that commitment annually, by digitally signing our compliance statement. This training and signing process reinforces our expectations regarding our interactions with each other, our customers, and all stakeholders in the communities we serve.
We raise red flags
Employees and external stakeholders can easily raise red flags by using our third party misconduct reporting system, Atlas Copco SpeakUp. Suspicions of misconduct can be reported in 36 languages and all reports are anonymous. Substantiated reports may result in disciplinary action, including termination and legal action, where appropriate.
