Our Global Code of Conduct

Our Global Code of Conduct is a clear set of standards for our business conduct. It provides the ethical and behavioral framework on which we base our decisions every day. The Code is anchored in our values and beliefs and underpins all that we do.

Our Global Code of Conduct (pdf) provides a series of guiding principles grouped into five categories that cover the breadth of our activities. They are:

  1. Working with one another
  2. Working with clients and others
  3. Acting with professional integrity
  4. Maintaining our objectivity and independence
  5. Protecting data, information and intellectual capital

By delivering on the promise of our Code, we protect and enhance the reputation of EY, and play a key role in building a better working world for our people, for our clients and for our communities.
