Statement of Ethics

The values that set us apart from others –integrity, respect for the individual, service to our customers, and the search for excellence- are the cornerstone of our Culture, and we categorically reiterate that under no circumstances are they negotiable. Associates in all areas and all levels of our business are held responsible for understanding and complying with our Statement of Ethics. Therefore, we are always vigilant that our activities are governed by our basic beliefs and values.

Some of the primary subjects covered in our Statement of Ethics:

  • Non-discrimination
  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Gifts Policy
  • Confidentiality of Privileged and Trade Information
  • Inappropriate Behaviors
  • Harassment on the Job
  • Proper Use of Company Assets
  • Sexual Harassment
  • No Repercussions
  • Fair Trade
  • Financial Integrity
  • Anticorruption

We have an Ethics area that reports directly to the Executive Vice President of General Counsel and Institutional Affairs for Mexico and Central America. This area is charged with the responsibility of disseminating and promoting a culture of ethical behavior and strict adherence to all legal regulations in the matter, which we consider one of the most important principles. In addition is the responsibility of handling all inquiries and ethics-related cases. The Audit Committee receives periodic reports from this area.
