Six Things You Need to Know About the DuPont Ethics & Compliance Hotline

What is the Ethics Hotline?

It is a confidential channel through which both DuPont employees/contractors and external parties can ask questions and raise concerns about ethics, compliance or DuPont’s Code of Conduct.

Who administers the Ethics Hotline?

The Ethics Hotline is administered by an independent company (NAVEX), is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can accommodate calls in more than 75 languages. You can contact the Ethics Hotline anonymously by phone or through the web from most locations.

Who else can I speak to?

DuPont encourages speaking up to the channel you are most comfortable with, such as your line manager, another member of management, a relevant supporting function such as legal or HR, or any member of Ethics & Compliance.

What happens after I contact the Ethics Hotline?

Once you submit a question or concern via phone or web, you will receive a report key and password which can be used to follow up on your submission. Then, an electronic summary is sent to a member of DuPont’s Ethics & Compliance team for review and to determine further action.

What is DuPont’s stance on retaliation?

DuPont does not tolerate retaliation. We consider acts of retaliation to be misconduct. Our commitment to such is stated in the first part of our Code of Conduct. We seek to provide a safe, healthy and productive workplace for our employees and our business partners who assist us in our business operations. Every report of retaliation is taken seriously.

Are reports to the Ethics Hotline secure and confidential?

DuPont uses NAVEX's EthicsPoint case management application to support the administration of the Ethics Hotline. EthicsPoint is hosted on NAVEX's secure servers and is not part of DuPont’s website or Intranet. Any report you make will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible consistent with applicable law and appropriate business practices.

Leadership Message

Conducting business today is more complex than ever – highlighted by rapid digitalization, heightened stakeholder expectations, increasing emphasis on Environmental, Social & Governance priorities and a constantly changing risk landscape. Highest Ethical Behavior – one of DuPont's four long-standing Core Values – sets an unwavering expectation for every employee at every level of the organization to be a respected corporate citizen worldwide. That means doing the right thing, every time, despite the complexity or circumstance.

Expectations regarding how we conduct business activities are clearly articulated in our Code of Conduct. The DuPont Ethics & Compliance team provides many tools and resources to enable all employees to understand and meet these guidelines. I encourage you to become familiar with the tools and resources available including how to ask questions or raise concerns through our ethics reporting hotline, EthicsPoint.
