Our CR Policies

Our policies outline our expectations for employees and suppliers. They represent our principles and align our efforts companywide. We review our policies regularly and revise when appropriate.


UTC’s Code of Ethics was created in 1990 and re-launched in 2006. The Code is the foundation of our governance efforts. We continuously work to strengthen our internal systems to encourage ethical behavior across the company.

Supplements to the code, including statements on corruption and antitrust guidelines, are available in 28 languages and can be found here.

In 2008, we expanded our Code of Ethics to include a Policy on citizenship and human rights which reflects our unwavering commitment to protecting and supporting human rights around the world.

Environment, Health and Safety

UTC’s EH&S policy, created in 1991 and revised in 2005, defines the general conditions to which all UTC businesses and employees are expected to comply, and illustrates and elaborates on our goals of safe products and services, zero employee injuries, and an unmatched record in protecting the natural environment.


Our global supplier environmental health and safety initiative ensures that 100 percent of all identified key and critical suppliers meet five minimum expectations outlined in our Supplier EH&S policy

In addition, we expect our suppliers to maintain the same ethical standards to which we hold ourselves accountable. Our Supplier Code of Conduct provides suppliers with this foundation in ethics.

Conflict Minerals

UTC’s conflict minerals policy supports the underlying objective of legislation enacted to curb the illicit trade in conflict minerals. UTC is engaged in efforts to reduce the risk that minerals used in its products contribute to the violence in the DRC region, including sponsorship of initiatives aimed at ridding global supply chains of conflict minerals that help finance violence.
