From Intel CEO
Intel has consistently been recognized as one of the world's leading corporate citizens and most ethical companies. I would like to thank you for your contribution in role modeling Intel values and maintaining our reputation as a company that is well respected, trusted, and admired.
As we embrace new challenges and increase our presence in rapidly changing markets, one thing that must never change is our unflagging commitment to our values and the highest ethical standards. These core values and standards are the foundation of the unique Intel culture that differentiates us, builds our brand, and inspires our customers and suppliers.
Our Code of Conduct is and will always be our steady compass. The Code sets the expectations for integrity and ethics that I expect all employees to follow. Read it, discuss it, and commit to upholding it. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your manager, your Business Group lawyer, the Ethics Program Office, or any member of Intel Ethics & Legal Compliance.
I look forward to your continued commitment to live our values in the workplace each and every day.
Since the company began, uncompromising integrity and professionalism have been the cornerstones of Intel’s business. In all that we do, Intel supports and upholds a set of core values and principles. Our future growth depends on each of us understanding these values and principles and continuously demonstrating the uncompromising integrity that is the foundation of our company.
The Code of Conduct sets the standard for how we work together to develop and deliver product, how we protect the value of Intel and its subsidiaries (collectively known as 'Intel'), and how we work with customers, suppliers, distributors, and others. All of us at Intel must abide by the Code, our Employment Guidelines, and other applicable policies when conducting Intel-related business.
The Code affirms Intel’s five principles of conduct:
• Conduct Business with Honesty and Integrity
• Follow the Letter and Spirit of the Law
• Treat Each Other Fairly
• Act in the Best Interests of Intel and Avoid Conflicts of Interest
• Protect the Company’s Assets and Reputation
Intel revised its Code of Conduct (the "Code") in January 2016 to, among other things, provide that directors and executive officers are to disclose any actual or apparent conflicts of interest directly to the General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer, or Board of Directors. The Code previously required all Intel employees to report such conflicts to their managers. The revised Code also reiterates Intel's commitment to preventing human trafficking and forced, debt-bonded, indentured, and slave labor in its supply chain, and adds a reference to Intel's Philosophy on Protecting Personal Information.
