Supplier Code of Conduct
Over time Colgate-Palmolive Company has built its reputation as an organization that has utilized ethical business practices and high levels of integrity as a vital business asset. As a successful business, we are focused on achieving the goals required to continue our global momentum and to make us an even stronger Company. However, we believe that our suppliers also play an important role in the on-going success of our Company.
The strength of Colgate's reputation is based not only on our own conduct, but also on the behavior of those with whom we do business. For that reason, we aspire to work only with those suppliers that share our values. Our Board of Directors, senior management and all Colgate people are committed to the highest standards of integrity and full compliance with our Company's Code of Conduct as well as the regulations and policies affecting our business. As such, it is our goal to ensure that our relationship with supplier partners reflect and support the same high ethical standards.
In keeping with this goal, Colgate-Palmolive Company has developed a Supplier Code of Conduct. The intent of this document is to reiterate Colgate's commitment to ethical standards and to clearly convey to all suppliers, the Company's expectations of ethical conduct as it pertains to their business relationship with Colgate.
