Understanding Our Global Standards for Business Conduct
Our CoorsTek Global Standards for Business Conduct (our Global Standards) is a reflection of The CoorsTek Way and helps us operate openly, honestly, and lawfully. We count on every employee, at every level of every CoorsTek company, to live by The CoorsTek Way, follow our Global Standards, and make decisions that will preserve the trust others have placed in us.
We are each personally accountable for understanding and living by The CoorsTek Way and for complying with our Global Standards, all CoorsTek policies, and all laws and regulations wherever we do business. Even the smallest instance of misconduct can damage our reputation, our company, our customers, or our communities.
CoorsTek counts on you to:
- Live by The CoorsTek Way and encourage fellow employees to do the same
- Understand and consult our Global Standards and use it to help you make sound decisions
- Comply with our Global Standards, our policies, and all laws and regulations
- Seek guidance from CoorsTek internal resources when you are unsure about the proper course of action
- Report any suspected violations or concerns
Living by The CoorsTek Way and following our Global Standards will serve you well in all situations that you may face. Although The CoorsTek Way and our Global Standards cannot describe every situation you may face, they provide guidance and tools for you to refer to when making all decisions, communications, and actions. It’s important to use common sense and good judgment in everything you do and to ask for help if you are unsure about the right course of action.
CoorsTek also counts on our managers and supervisors to lead by example and to create a work environment where employees feel comfortable raising questions or concerns.
Be aware that anyone who violates The CoorsTek Way, our Global Standards, our policies, or any law or regulation may face corrective or disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment with CoorsTek.
ZERO TOLERANCE FOR RETALIATION
We recognize that speaking up isn’t always easy, and we want to make the decision to Share Your Concern as simple as possible. Regardless of who you contact, you can be confident that you are doing the right thing and that your concern will be handled promptly and appropriately.
CoorsTek will not tolerate any form of retaliation or intimidation against anyone who in good faith reports a suspected instance of misconduct or a violation of The CoorsTek Way, our Global Standards, our policies, or a law or regulation. Any person who is found to have retaliated against someone who in good faith raises a concern or cooperates in an investigation may be subject to corrective or disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment with CoorsTek.
