Values and Ethics

Trust is one of our core values. To maintain our company’s position as a market leader, it is crucial for us to earn the trust of our customers, employees, investors and the communities in which we operate. Gaining that trust starts with conducting our business to high standards of ethics and integrity.

We are committed to conducting our business ethically and in compliance with the letter and spirit of all applicable laws and regulations. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics outlines our expectations, and all employees, officers, directors, vendors, contractors and partners are expected to comply with them.

Respect for human rights is embedded in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and reflected in our labor policies which address the fundamental conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Ethical supply chain

Purchasing decisions can have a major social and environmental impact. We hold our suppliers to the same high standards to which we hold ourselves. In keeping with our Supplier Code of Conduct, we expect our suppliers to behave responsibly, ethically and sustainably.

Our expectations, which are outlined in The OpenText Sustainable and Ethical Procurement Policy, also apply to supplier environmental responsibility, integrity and fair and honest dealings.

We also help customers ensure their supply chains meet ethical practices with transparency into the sustainability practices of their partners/suppliers.
