Built in trust. Respect. Integrity.

UTC’s success relies on a system of core values that require us to hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards to ensure we earn our business based solely on our merits.

Our Code of Ethics

United by Values
What we do is critical and how we act matters. That’s why our Code of Ethics focuses on the core values that serve as the foundation of our culture: trust, integrity, respect, innovation and excellence.

Our Code of Ethics

Our Code of Ethics applies everywhere we do business. The integrity, reputation and success of UTC ultimately depends not only upon the individual actions of our employees, but on the actions of the many parties with whom we do business. Accordingly, we expect our employees and our business partners to act at all times in a manner consistent with the values and standards set forth in our Code of Ethics.

Beyond requiring us to comply with the law, our Code of Ethics demands that we aspire to do the right thing even when the law may permit us to do otherwise.

Since 2009, UTC has developed annual objectives to drive Ethics & Compliance performance. In 2015, UTC adopted a new, long-term approach with aggressive 5-year goals, designed to drive transformational improvement of our ethics and compliance program.

Speaking Up

Our Ombudsman Program allows employees and others to ask a question or raise concern in complete confidence.

Ensuring Compliance

UTC’s Enterprise Risk Management assessments measure compliance risks, deploy risk mitigation plans and track implementation for five key areas.

Trust. Respect. Integrity.

At UTC, we strive every day to earn the respect of our customers and shareholders based on the quality of our products and services as well as how we do business.
