Code of Conduct


Ecolab adopted its initial Code of Conduct policy in 1976. The policy was last amended on November 29, 2012. The Code of Conduct applies to all Ecolab officers, directors and employees.  Ecolab intends to promptly disclose on this website should there be any further amendments to, or waivers by the Board of Directors of, the Code of Conduct.


Committing to the Highest Ethical and Legal Standards

The excellent reputation Ecolab enjoys is one of its greatest assets.  It provides a solid foundation upon which to build trust with our customers and communities.

Our Code of Conduct serves as a guide for how to act and make decisions as an employee of Ecolab.  Following the Code helps ensure that Ecolab will continue to be recognized for doing what is right.

Each employee is responsible for demonstrating the Company's values and following its Code of Conduct.  It is, therefore, essential for our employees to read, understand and follow the Code.  How we work really does matter--to our co-workers, customers and communities.
