ST Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct and its Addendum is all about ST’s values and commonly held principles that represent our corporate culture and history, and are the top-level reference for guiding our behavior, decision-making and activities:
Integrity: we conduct our business with the highest ethical standards, honor our commitments, deliver on our promises, are loyal and fair and stand up for what is right.
People: we behave with openness, trust and simplicity; we are ready to share our knowledge, encourage everyone’s contribution, develop our people through empowerment, teamwork and training; each one of us is committed and personally involved in the continuous improvement process.
Excellence: we strive for quality and customer satisfaction and create value for all our partners; we are flexible, encourage innovation, develop our competences, seek responsibility and are accountable for our actions; we act with discipline, base our decisions on facts and focus on the priorities.
Complying with our Code of Conduct is mandatory for everyone acting on behalf of ST, including executives, managers, employees and business partners, as we are all responsible for acting ethically.
The Company’s Management strives for the cultivation of a “speak up” culture, allowing everyone (such as employees, business partners and customers) to express any concern they might have regarding possible violation of the principles contained in our Code of Conduct, internal policies and the law. ST set up an Ethics Hotline, operated by an independent third party provider, reachable 24/7 online or by phone (with a multilingual offering).
