Our Ethics and Code of Conduct are rooted in our values and provide the standards and support to help us successfully navigate issues, make the right decisions and conduct our business with the integrity that reflects our heritage and ethical reputation. We uphold Jacobs’ global Supplier Code of Conduct, and in 2020 we are developing our sustainability partnership dialogue with 15 global suppliers.
The Jacobs Code of Conduct provides a consistent, company-wide statement of our business practices and workplace conduct, and establishes the expectations, obligations and responsibilities of our employees to abide by these business practices in all situations and circumstances, regardless of local culture or business climate and regardless of the competitive environment in which we may find ourselves. The Code of Conduct applies to every employee, director and officer of the Company, anywhere in the world. This also includes majority-owned subsidiaries and subsidiaries over which Jacobs has managerial control. Parts of the Code of Conduct may also apply to agents, consultants, business partners, suppliers and subcontractors.
The Jacobs Integrity Hotline is available to employees and others who wish to report non-compliance or suspected violations of law and policy, or to seek guidance on specific situations regarding company policy. The Integrity Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Reports may be made anonymously at integrity.jacobs.com or at telephone number +1.844.543.8351. Jacobs strictly prohibits any form of retaliation against individuals who make a report in good faith out of genuine concern.
We respect the human rights and dignity of people in our operations, supply chain and the communities where we work. Our approach is guided by international principles including the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. In 2020, we are publishing our new Human Rights Policy.
Every day we strive to act with integrity and honesty to ensure the health and future of our company. We ask that each of our Jacobs teammates, clients and partners commit to maintaining the highest ethical standards.
