LIVING THE TEXTRON VALUES
Earning the trust and respect of our customers, shareholders, employees and the communities where we live and work is serious business. At Textron, and throughout our business units, we adhere to a strict standard of ethics and compliance.
Textron's Business Conduct Guidelines
Our values - integrity, respect, trust and the pursuit of excellence - fuel ethical behavior in our business and community interactions. Our strategy is to prevent, detect and correct unethical or non-compliant behavior. Noncompliance with Textron's Business Conduct Guidelines is subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. All Textron employees - regardless of position or title - are accountable for safeguarding and furthering the high ethical standards associated with our company in the global marketplace.
Textron's ethics and compliance program is structured to reinforce ethical and legally compliant behavior. Our Ethics and Compliance (E&C) steering committees focus on the prevention of noncompliant and unethical behavior through risk assessment, risk mitigation, monitoring and education. Our program has been active for more than 30 years and has evolved to reflect changes in the business world and regulatory environment. E&C's plans and initiatives follow a rigorous process.
Our values and culture support an E&C program that is based on self-reporting and acceptance of personal responsibility for ethical behavior. Textron provides and publicizes multiple channels for employees to ask questions, raise concerns or report violations without fear of retribution. Suspected violations are investigated by appropriate Corporate and/or business unit personnel. If an investigation reveals the need to take corrective action, we will implement changes to systems, practices and procedures.
