As a Bombardier employee, you have a duty to follow the Code, regardless of your position or location. If you’re a newly hired employee, you must read the Code and sign an acknowledgement that you’ve understood it and commit to complying with it. Every year, designated members of management are required to sign an acknowledgement that they’ve read and understood the Code and to indicate whether they’re aware of any breach of the Code’s provisions.
Our core values shape the culture of Bombardier and serve as the foundation of this Code. All of our actions and decisions must be guided by these common values:
1 | Integrity
Honesty, transparency, legality and high standards of ethical conduct guide us in all interactions.
2 | Respect for others
We achieve quality work when there’s mutual respect among everyone. We value professional relationships that are based on respect for all individuals and organizations we do business with. Respect is essential in maintaining a healthy and thriving work environment for everyone.
3 | Commitment to excellence
We’re committed to the pursuit of excellence—not only in our products, but also in how we perform our duties and in our dealings with customers, shareholders, suppliers, colleagues, partners and communities..
FOLLOWING THE LAW
As an international company, Bombardier does business in many countries around the world. That means we must follow the laws and regulations of multiple jurisdictions, including nations, provinces, states, municipalities and international bodies, as applicable to our businesses and operations. When local laws permit something that is prohibited by the Code, then our Code always prevails.
If you encounter a conflict between the laws of a country where Bombardier does business and this Code, or if you need clarification regarding applicable law, contact a Legal Services representative or the Ethics and Compliance Office.
UPHOLDING THE WORLD’S LARGEST SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE
Bombardier is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, and we’re committed to actively promoting its 10 fundamental principles addressing human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption through our corporate strategies and across our operations. Our Code of Ethics incorporates this commitment and guides all employees to uphold these core principles.
