PRAXAIR BUSINESS INTEGRITY & ETHICS POLICY
Standards of business integrity
We have adopted an Ethics Policy and developed Standards of Business Integrity to provide additional, specific business conduct guidance to our employees.
This information is distributed to our employees around the world to outline Praxair’s expectations of ethical conduct and integrity wherever we do business. We take these standards very seriously and non-compliance can result in severe disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Our employees are actively encouraged to report suspected complaints and concerns, and can anonymously report violations through a number of channels, including the Integrity Hotline. We also encourage customers, vendors or other observers to use the hotline to submit complaints or allegations about these or other matters.
The following table provides the aggregate number of hotline reports made during the years:
If you have observed a violation of Praxair's Standards of Business Integrity, please contact our Integrity Hotline:
