As United Technologies continues to grow in markets around the world, we bring with us a belief that financial performance and corporate responsibility go hand in hand.
Leading in our communities. We celebrate and encourage volunteerism. We believe United Technologies and our employees can have a positive impact in communities around the world.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our products, our operations and our supply chain. We provide a safe work environment and support lifelong learning for all employees. We support charitable and social causes in the communities where we live and work. Everywhere we do business, we apply the highest standards of corporate responsibility and measure success with the same set of ethical, environmental and safety metrics.
At United Technologies, we are committed to making things better in our communities and our world. We partner with leading nonprofit organizations focused on areas that are important to our business and our stakeholders: promoting sustainable building practices; educating the next generation of engineers and scientists; honoring the courage and sacrifice of veterans and military families; and improving the well-being of the communities where we operate.
One world. One code. Our Code of Ethics applies everywhere we do business and provides a framework to help employees make the right decision in any situation. The integrity, reputation and profitability of United Technologies depend on the individual actions of our directors, officers, employees and representatives all over the world. Each is responsible and accountable for compliance with our Code of Ethics. Across the company, we expect high performance with high integrity. And we will never sacrifice the latter to achieve the former.
Acting with integrity. Every day our employees make decisions to uphold our Code of Ethics and the fundamental values that guide our way of doing business. Here are a few examples.
We earn the respect of our customers, partners and other stakeholders not just on the merits of our technologies but on the merits of how we do business. Acting ethically and in accordance with all applicable laws is critical to our future success.
We remain vigilant in our commitment to doing the right thing. We provide employees the necessary training and resources to reinforce our culture of trust, respect and integrity.
Supporting our efforts is a community of nearly 500 Ethics & Compliance officers who advise our 211,000 employees in upholding our Code of Ethics and commitment to doing the right thing, everywhere, every time.
