The actions you take every day in responding to customer needs shape our culture and help form our reputation in the eyes of the world.

By working together and working right, we are building a culture that makes a positive impact in our communities, with our customers, and that positions us for a sustainable future.

At Celanese, we have a business conduct policy.

You’ll find it applies regardless of where you are or what you do for Celanese, helping all of us follow the same standards of integrity, honesty and compliance with the law.

Please review this resource and use it routinely.

Consult it for guidance on how to work responsibly and avoid unintended mistakes.

This policy will help you understand your role in ensuring that we do business the right way because how we do business matters.

No action is worth damaging our reputation in the marketplace or compromising our values.

I also encourage you to have open, candid dialogue with colleagues and supervisors when you have questions about our policy or see risks that could prevent us from achieving our objectives.

Great communication helps us remain in compliance and will help us achieve our vision of being the first-choice chemistry solution provider.

OUR RESPONSIBILITIES

HOW WE ACHIEVE SUCCESS.

At Celanese, our actions define us and our Company. To achieve our goals, we know that it takes honesty, integrity and compliance with the law. We embrace our responsibilities and adhere to these standards to ensure a better working environment and the continued success of our Company. It’s how we do business and how we do business truly matters.

We all have the ability to influence the attitudes, actions and habits of those around us. As members of the Celanese team, we agree that our influence comes with the responsibilities to:

  • Follow all laws, regulations and our policies
  • Live and promote our values
  • Be respectful; act ethically and with integrity
  • Create a positive, inclusive and collaborative environment where we feel comfortable seeking advice and raising concerns
  • Safeguard the confidentiality of those who raise a concern in good faith and protect them from retaliation
  • Protect our Company's financial integrity and reputation
  • Take care that personal interests do not interfere with our Company loyalty
  • Ensure that third parties we engage follow these standards
  • Take appropriate action once aware of possible unethical behavior or violations of law

Compliance with our BCP is a condition of employment. We will take appropriate disciplinary action, which could include termination of employment for serious breaches of our BCP. In some circumstance, if an employee has violated a law, the Company may notify relevant authorities, which may result in criminal prosecution.

Help build our reputation on a foundation of trust. As a Celanese director, officer or a team member, including subsidiaries and affiliates, we each agree to comply with our business and ethics guidelines to help make our company a success.

Any Waiver of the Business Conduct Policy (BCP) for executive officers or Directors may be made only by the Board of Directors or a Board committee.

ETHICS HELPLINE

If you need to discuss an issue, the best place to start is often with your Supervisor.

They know your situation; they can direct you to resources, help you with procedures, and lend immediate support. But you can always reach out to our Celanese Leaders, HR Partner, or Chief Compliance Officer.

The Ethics Helpline is always available to you to raise your compliance concerns confidentially or anonymously. It’s necessary to report certain compliance issues (bribes, price fixing, and failures of financial integrity) to the Chief Compliance Officer or the Ethics Helpline because they can result in serious consequences.

Read the Celanese Non-Retaliation Policy

Celanese will not permit retaliation for providing information regarding any conduct which you reasonably believe constitutes a violation of our Business Conduct Policy, any applicable law, or for participating in an investigation.


The Ethics Helpline

“You can talk to me” means we will not retaliate; all Ethics Helpline calls are confidential and, if you like, you can raise concerns anonymously.
