Our Commitment

Bill & Melinda Gates Agricultural Innovations is an organization where we are expected to act with integrity, abide by the highest ethical standards, and ensure a culture of respectful behavior and good stewardship.

Gates Ag One is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your manager, foundation Human Resources or Assurance & Risk Management, or Gates Ag One’s CEO or Board of Managers, or foundation legal counsel in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred.

If you feel you cannot discuss the matter with these individuals or if you prefer to place an anonymous report, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint, to submit reports relating to violations of our Code of Conduct.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you so choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
