Our ethical and accountable workplace is founded on our Code of Business Conduct. This Code affirms our standards of compliance with laws, including our zero tolerance standard for bribery and corruption and strict rules regarding gifts and entertainment, sponsorships, charitable donations, and social and political contributions.
For the past two years, we have been expanding our training and education around anti-corruption and other compliance policies and procedures. During International Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week, employees were invited to share their experiences about ethical actions in difficult situations. We have implemented an annual review and recertification of high-risk vendors, created new policies to address money-laundering and sanctions risks, and updated and refreshed our other compliance policies and procedures.
