Our Code of Conduct

At Atlas Copco Group, we stand for integrity, fairness and respect in all our interactions. How we conduct ourselves globally is more than just a matter of upholding regulations, policy and law; it's a reflection of our core values. 

We have an unwavering commitment to the highest ethical behavior, including zero tolerance for human rights abuses, bribery and corruption.

We have internal controls in place to make sure that we act with the utmost integrity. The Code of Conduct is our guide to doing business ethically and optimizing the social and environmental impact of our operations.  The Code of Conduct has been translated into 36 languages so that each and every one of us embodies these values in our work, day in and day out.

We train our employees in how to recognize conflicts of interest, bribery, fraud, harassment, discrimination and other forms of misconduct. Our business partners, especially those representing a brand within the Atlas Copco Group, are also encouraged to use the ethical dilemmas training package to learn more about what we expect of them.   

Our employees, business partners and other stakeholders are encouraged to report any suspected wrongdoing through our external and independent reporting system, Atlas Copco Group SpeakUp. It can be used to anonymously report behavior or actions that may be perceived as violations of laws, regulations, or our Code of Conduct.  We encourage anyone who suspects misconduct to report it.

Significant business partners must commit to our Code of Conduct by signing our Business Partner Criteria. Both documents are available in English and other languages. Supplier evaluations help ensure that they are aligned with our high standards in the areas of safety, health, the environment and quality.
