Everything we do at Campbell reflects our strong foundation of ethical business practices. This foundation allows us to attract and retain talented people who share our values and reduces the potential for risk or reputational damage. We pride ourselves on having built an ethical company where employees are proud to work. Campbell’s corporate compliance and ethics program, Winning with Integrity, reflects our conviction that conducting business in compliance with the law and the highest standards of business ethics is essential to our success. As reflected in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, employees share responsibility for ensuring that the Winning with Integrity principles are fulfilled every day, through each and every action taken – whether in the marketplace, the workplace or the community.
The Code outlines our company’s basic standards and expectations, highlights important policies and summarizes certain fundamental legal requirements that employees must follow. Employees receive a copy of the Code when they join Campbell and participate in training regularly. The most recently updated version was approved by the CEO and the Board of Directors, is available in multiple languages, and is posted on the company’s internal and external websites.
Campbell’s Legal Department is responsible for maintaining and administering the Winning with Integrity program. The Vice President, Deputy General Counsel & Head of Corporate Compliance and Ethics has overall responsibility for the direction and administration of the program and has direct access to the Chair of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors for all compliance-related matters. A full report on the program is presented to the Audit Committee on an annual basis.
