Avnet's Code of Conduct clearly details how we conduct ourselves in every aspect of business. It is a commitment to our stakeholders that they can count on us to operate with respect, honesty and fairness in all interactions.
One of the most valuable assets of Avnet is its integrity – in fact, it is one of our core values. Protecting this asset is the job of everyone in the company. Integrity and ethics are central to Avnet’s success and these are issues that I take very seriously. Having a documented Code of Conduct is an important part of this commitment. But our responsibility goes beyond the paperwork and fulfilling legal requirements. The Code of Conduct demonstrates to customers, suppliers, partners and employees that they can rely on Avnet for full legal compliance and uncompromised business ethics. As employees, we all have a duty to uphold the code, company policies and the law by performing our jobs in an open and honest manner.
The Code covers a variety of topics which help equip employees with skills necessary to make the right decisions.
