Ethics, Compliance and Public Policy

  • Ethics and Compliance

    Collins Aerospace is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards and business practices. Doing things the right way, every day – even when it's hard and no one is looking – is at the core of what we do.

    We take great pride in our strength of character and place ethics and integrity above all else. Raytheon Technologies' (RTX) Code of Conduct ("The Code") is an integral part of our culture, is an expression of our fundamental values, and represents an ethical framework for our decision-making and business activities. We expect our employees and business partners to act in a manner consistent with the values and standards set forth in The Code.

    At Collins Aerospace, we work in a complex and dynamic global business environment that's full of unique challenges and high expectations, and we understand that every employee is united by our core set of values and the commitments we've made to our stakeholders – our customers, competitors, suppliers, shareowners and the communities in which we operate. The way we conduct ourselves throughout the world matters.

  • EH&S policy

    Collins Aerospace is committed to being a leader in Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) by protecting the health and safety of its employees, its neighbors, its contractors and the natural environment. We will comply with all applicable laws and regulations and will not hesitate to go beyond legal requirements if a higher level of performance is in order. EH&S performance is valued along with all business considerations (e.g., quality, customer satisfaction and cost).

    We are committed to providing safe working conditions by eliminating hazards and reducing EH&S risks. We will engage our employees to ensure participation in the reduction of EH&S risks at our operations. Business unit and operations management, assisted by EH&S professionals, is responsible for identifying and attaining goals that result in continual improvement of our compliance, employee safety and pollution prevention performance. Each employee is responsible for improving performance, not only by understanding and following established standards and procedures, but also by recommending improved practices where appropriate.

    We will work with our suppliers, who are expected to meet minimum EH&S requirements, by sharing best practices and offering outreach programs to help improve their EH&S performance. We will also partner with our customers by sharing best practices and, where appropriate, learning from their EH&S achievements.

    Regulators and other external EH&S customers will be dealt with openly and honestly. Collins Aerospace will strive to meet all of its commitments, perform well on audits, and provide excellent customer satisfaction. We will be a leader in EH&S performance. This policy will be made available to the public upon request.

  • Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities (AODA)

    The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) became law in 2005 with the stated purpose of “recognizing the history of discrimination against persons with disabilities in Ontario” and to “achieve accessibility in goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises.”

    Collins Aerospace is committed to treating all people in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. We support integration and equal opportunity for all people. Collins is committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in a timely manner, and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.
