ACEs Standards of Business Conduct and Codes of Ethics
Ethical Standards and Business Practice
ACEs conducts its business in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and with high ethical standards and business practices.
ACEs believes that ethical values establish the foundation for its business success. We strive to conduct our business activities consistent with the highest ethical standards as well as the many laws, regulations and policies that impact our business dealings. We believe our company and all of our stakeholders benefit when integrity is the cornerstone of our operations. Therefore, we take pride in the ethics program we provide for our employees, subcontractors, and suppliers.
It is imperative that company employees, subcontractors, and suppliers adhere to particularly high ethical standards. ACEs demands and fosters highly ethical conduct because the organization can be successful only when employees look after long-term interests of ACEs and resist pressures to compromise company standards.
Specific policies governing business ethics and standards are described in our Standards of Conduct and Code of Ethics Handbook
The culture and business approach of ACEs allows more individual freedom than in many other companies. With this freedom comes the individual responsibility not to abuse it in a manner that causes risk to the organization, its employees, or its customers. Performance goals are important, but they must not be achieved at the expense of fair and ethical dealing.
ACEs expects its employees to implement ethical values throughout their organizations. To facilitate this process, ACEs has established an Ethics & Compliance Program that is provided to each of our employees. In addition, a web-based Standards of Conduct & Code of Ethics Handbook is available to employees to assist them with day-to-day decision making. The handbook includes workplace rules, standards of business conduct, guidance on procurement requirements and intellectual property rights, among other information.
Subcontractors and Suppliers
ACEs is committed to the highest standards of product quality and business integrity in their dealings with customers, subcontractors, suppliers, and all who work on behalf of ACEs. As a result, all subcontractors and suppliers and the ACEs employees who work with them are expected to conduct themselves with the highest standards of honesty, fairness and personal integrity. It is critical to ACEs that suppliers and employees alike maintain high ethical standards, adhere to all applicable laws, and avoid even the perception of impropriety or conflict of interest.
