Fluor Ethics and Compliance
Fluor strives to move beyond compliance with laws and regulations, approaching ethics issues proactively. We continually improve and enhance our ethics and compliance program by monitoring evolving risks and benchmarking best practices in our company, our industry and the global business community.
In a recent survey of global Clients, "ethical" was one of the three unsolicited terms cited most frequently as being associated with Fluor. Throughout Fluor's history, we have made ethical conduct a priority. We believe this is largely due to the fact that integrity has been one of the company's enduring values. Fluor aims to instill a strong ethical standard into its business culture. Our leadership continuously expresses the critical importance that ethical conduct and anti-corruption plays for the success of every employee and business partner, the growth of our company and the benefit of all our stakeholders.
The Code & Related Policies
The Fluor Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the Code) is the centerpiece of the commitment Fluor has made to conduct business with the highest standards of integrity. Fluor finds every incident of corruption, no matter how small, to be unacceptable. Fluor’s Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy sets forth clear standards for employees to apply to every business environment and context.
Third Party Expectations
Fluor suppliers, contractors, and other third parties are key participants in our quest for high standards of business conduct. They are expected to maintain the highest standards of integrity and to comply with the laws and regulations that govern their business and the business they do on behalf of Fluor. Fluor requires all our suppliers and contractors comply, and in turn require their suppliers and contractors comply, with Fluor's Business Conduct and Ethics Expectations for Suppliers and Contractors (the Supplier Expectations).
Compliance and Ethics Program Structure
Fluor's Management and Board of Directors are committed to ensuring the company has an effective Compliance and Ethics Program. The company's Compliance and Ethics Committee, made up of cross-functional senior management, supports the company to operate in accordance with the highest ethical business standards.
Anti-Corruption Initiatives through Collective Action
Fluor believes collective action is critical to affect positive change. Fluor takes a leadership role in external initiatives focused on eliminating corruption and bribery, creating a level playing field for business and engaging governments through collective action.
We believe in supporting and protecting the health, safety, welfare, security, and dignity of each worker on our projects. Ethical recruitment and employment practices, safe work practices, as well as safe and healthy living and working conditions are critical elements delivering our work.
Compliance & Ethics in Action
Fluor holds itself to high standards of ethics going beyond compliance with the law. Fluor's commitment is simply this: to do the right thing. Fluor has developed standards, including the Code, and works to ensure that its employees have the tools, knowledge, and resources to adhere to them.
Getting Help and Reporting Concerns
Fluor employees, Clients, suppliers, subcontractors, and other third party business partners can ask questions about the Code or report any suspected misconduct involving Fluor through Fluor's Compliance and Ethics Hotline, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
