Our CEO and certain other executive leaders additionally adhere to our Code of Ethics for CEO and Senior Financial Officers, which includes full and fair public disclosures, internal controls, conflicts of interest, and legal and ethical compliance. We also expect those we do business with to act ethically and abide by our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for Suppliers and Business Partners.
