Ethics & Compliance
Since 1865, when W.W. Cargill founded our company, Cargill has acted on the belief that doing the right thing sets the foundation for long-term success. This rich legacy has sustained us for nearly 150 years. Today, as a global leader in nourishing people, we remain just as committed to this belief. Our customers, shareholders, employees and communities count on us to uphold this commitment and we know that Cargill’s continued success depends on it.
We achieve this by following our Code of Conduct, enabling our suppliers to follow our Supplier Code of Conduct and providing a way to report a concern through our Ethics Open Line.
Code of Conduct
Cargill’s Code of Conduct outlines our company’s ethical and compliance standards for conducting business throughout the world and serves as a guide for employees when they face dilemmas where the right choice is not clear. Our Code is grounded in our seven Guiding Principles, which are ingrained in our culture and serve as the foundation for the behaviors expected from all of our employees in all parts of the world.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Cargill’s purpose is to nourish the world in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way. We understand that supply chains that support the global food system must be sustainable—balancing the needs of today with the needs of future generations. We can achieve our purpose only by working closely with our Supplier Partners. Our Supplier Code of Conduct explains how we expect farmers, producers, manufacturers, and others to work with us to fulfill that purpose—ethically and in compliance with applicable laws.
Ethics Open Line
Even companies with a long history of doing the right thing experience misconduct and we are no exception. Cargill has established a hotline, called the Ethics Open Line, as a way for anyone (employees and third-parties) to ask questions or raise concerns. The Ethics Open Line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week worldwide. Anyone can submit questions or share concerns by scanning a QR code on a mobile device, completing an online form, or calling a country-specific phone number. Access is provided in many languages and anyone making a report has the option to provide contact information or to remain anonymous (where allowed by country law). We respond to all questions and take reports of potential misconduct seriously, and we handle investigations promptly, fairly, and as confidentially as possible.
