From communications by executive leaders to conversations between managers and individual employees to transactions with customers, Cisco stresses the importance of ethical practices in all areas of its business.
Responsibility and Trust
Effective corporate governance is necessary to maintain public trust and achieve business success. Stringent financial policies and transparent practices reflect our diligence. Cisco's Board of Directors has taken steps to maintain objectivity and to meet or exceed legal requirements.
Integrity and Values
Cisco promises to uphold the highest professional standards in all global business operations. Company leaders also expect that those with whom Cisco does business will adhere to high ethical principles. The Cisco Code of Business Conduct outlines these expectations.
Cisco provides information about its social and financial performance across all areas of business.

"As a global business leader, Cisco is expected to produce results through actions that reflect our culture based on open communication, trust, and integrity."
