"Our long-term sustainability is directly linked to achieving our business goals in the right way. Today more than ever, building trust with one another, our customers and our suppliers is essential to the success and competitiveness of our company.
Aptiv’s Code of Ethical Business Conduct is foundational to our commitment to act with integrity and in keeping with the highest ethical standards. It helps ensure that we comply with legal requirements and policies and serves as a guide to navigating our complex, ever-changing business environment. We provide our employees with the tools and training needed to enable them to do the right thing, the right way.
Our training and communications are made available across multiple channels throughout the year to reinforce the responsibility that each of us has to conduct business with integrity and to speak up if we become aware of potentially unethical conduct by others.
Only by living our values can we succeed in our mission to make the world safer, greener and more connected.”
The Drive Line is Aptiv’s ethics helpline, operated by an independent third party 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Available at driveline.aptiv.com, it offers translation services in 16 languages. We treat all reports confidentially, investigate them thoroughly, react promptly and appropriately and will not tolerate any form of retaliation.
As part of our supply chain compliance program, we ensure that our key suppliers affirm their alignment with our Code of Conduct for Business Partners, which outlines Aptiv’s values and priorities, including our fundamental ESG principles. We also engage with our supply base to underscore these ESG principles in other ways, such as by providing them with our sustainability training. Further, during our selection of new suppliers and throughout our relationship with them, we screen and monitor for various supply chain risks. In addition, we are focusing on ways to analyze risks in real time, which will allow us to address them more proactively.
Aptiv has been designated one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies 11 years in a row by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
