Through our biennial assessment of sustainability issues, we classified two tiers of priorities: Tier 1 performance factors where we seek to accelerate progress by setting targets for 2017 and 2020; and Tier 2 factors that we will advance through continued management and disclosure, without setting new SMP goals. We define Business Integrity through these factors:
Ethical Governance and leadership
Efforts to maintain consistent, transparent and high ethical standards and practices across our business.
Anti-Bribery and corruption controls
Efforts to prevent bribery and corruption among employees, suppliers and contractors.
Helping suppliers strengthen management and disclosure on ethical, labor, human rights and environmental issues.
Efforts to ensure sales are conducted ethically and fairly, with careful consideration for export controls and trade policies, products’ intended use and impact on civilian needs.
Human and labor rights
Efforts to prevent abusive labor practices and civil liberties violations in business operations and supply chain in a manner consistent with internationally recognized standards.
Efforts to enhance procurement opportunities for small business suppliers by supporting their organizational development and competitiveness.
Efforts to monitor and manage conflict mineral use, as defined in section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act, in our product manufacturing and supply chain.
