A WORD FROM OUR SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM
At Bombardier, we believe that good ethics make great business, and we demonstrate that in everything we do. We build trains and planes that carry millions of people around the world every day. We owe it to our customers, to our shareholders and to each other to always uphold the highest standards of ethics and business conduct.
How we conduct business is fundamental to our success and achieving our results. From major decisions made in the boardroom to day-to-day operations on our shop floors, we’re committed to operating openly, honestly and with unwavering integrity.
We believe ethics and compliance is our shared responsibility. It involves performing our jobs in good faith and thinking through the potential impacts of our decisions and actions. This Code of Ethics (“the Code”) is our roadmap to carrying out business and behaving in an ethical manner while protecting Bombardier’s employees, assets and reputation. Together, we can compete with integrity and succeed in a way we can all be proud of.
Thank you for your efforts in safeguarding our reputation as a trusted manufacturer of the best planes and trains in the world and as a good corporate citizen.
