When we say “it’s what’s inside that counts”, we mean how we conduct ourselves — and how we do business — starts with our core values. These guiding principles serve as a compass for our decisions, actions and behaviors. They form a code that transcends the boundaries of culture and geography to direct us in how to respond to issues of basic human rights. Living our values requires us to meet the highest standards of behavior in all aspects of business — all over the world. At their heart, our principles are based on two simple concepts — integrity and a concern for the welfare of others.
