The DuPont Code of Conduct provides information:
To guide employees so that their business conduct is consistent with the company's ethical standards.
To improve the understanding of the company's ethical standards among customers, suppliers and others outside the company.
Whenever you have questions or concerns regarding an ethical situation, you are encouraged to discuss these concerns with local line management. If you do not feel comfortable discussing the concerns face-to-face, you can call the DuPont Ethics and Compliance Hotline.
Such situations may include:
- Theft or fraud
- Accounting or Auditing issues
- Conflicts of Interest
- Inappropriate business gifts
- Safety, Health, or Environmental Issues
- Misuse of company assets
- Non-compliance with laws
The DuPont Ethics and Compliance Hotline is a multi-lingual, free phone number to call to report suspected violations of our Code of Conduct/Ethics Policy. The Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The callers can choose to remain anonymous. If you call the Hotline, a trained specialist, who is employed by an outside firm, will listen to your concerns and take notes to prepare a report that will be forwarded to the appropriate DuPont management for review, or, in cases involving auditing, accounting or internal controls issues, to the Audit Committee of the DuPont Board of Directors. If immediate assistance is needed, the outside firm will put the caller in touch with the appropriate DuPont personnel right away.
