Ethics & Compliance

Ethics & Compliance

​​​​​​​At UTC, trust, respect and integrity are built-in to everything we do and everything we make. Acting ethically and in accordance with all applicable laws is critical to keeping UTC competitive. We expect high performance with high integrity  ̶  we seek to always compete fairly and solely on the merits of our products and services. When faced with a choice between our business ethics or completing a deal – we always adhere to our Code of Ethics.​

UTC’s success relies on a system of core values that require us to hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards to ensure we earn our business based solely on our merits.

Our Code of Ethics, adopted in 1990, clarifies those values and commitments that establish a framework for ethical decision making everywhere we do business. The Code strengthens UTC’s fight against corruption and promotes behavior that leads to the development of fair markets so that every company competes only on its merits.

Nearly 500 Ethics and Compliance Officers (ECOs) advise employees, contractors, suppliers, sales agents and other stakeholders on UTC’s ethics, ensuring thorough and appropriate communications, training and appraisals.

UTC prides itself on a system of complementary ethics activities.

  • ​​We sustain enterprise-wide communications celebrating ethics successes and advising of ethics risks.
  • We provide mandatory ethics training for all employees and investigations training for personnel involved in assessing ethics violations.
  • We require ethics competency for all salaried employees.
  • We identify annual ethics objectives, cascaded from our chief executive officer, to others in leadership positions.
  • We provide channels for reporting issues or raising questions, including the confidential Ombudsman/DIALOG program.
  • We protect all those who speak up to protect the company through a formal non-retaliation policy and accompanying handbook.
