Business Ethics and Tata Code of Conduct
Ethical behaviour is intrinsic to the way we conduct our business and is part of our legacy from the founder of the Tata Group, Jamsetji Tata, who believed that business must operate in a way that respects the rights of all its stakeholders and creates an overall benefit for society.
Our ethical principles are articulated in the Tata Code of Conduct (TCOC), to which all Tata Group companies subscribe. The TCOC is a testament to the Tata Group’s determination to help employees in every way to understand our duties and commitments towards shared values and principles. The comprehensive document serves as the ethical road map for Tata Group companies and employees.
The TCOC also embodies clarity of communication, transparency, respect for others and an ethical approach in conducting business, all of which contribute towards building team spirit and enhancing integrity in the our interaction with all stakeholders. We do not tolerate corrupt or fraudulent practices. We expect honesty, integrity and transparency in all aspects of our business from our employees, vendors, contractors and other business counterparts.
The TCOC has added significance in the Group’s aspiration to be the global industry benchmark for value creation and corporate citizenship. It highlights the importance of our efforts in improving the quality of life of the communities in which we operates. This includes the understanding that in the process of production and sale of products and services, we will strive for economic, social and environmental sustainability.
