Guidelines and Policies

Honeywell observes the highest standards of business ethics and corporate social responsibility wherever we operate.

Code of Business Conduct

Honeywell’s Code of Business Conduct places a high value on the integrity of the company and our directors, officers, employees, and representatives. Our reputation and our brand mean a lot to us. From the shop floor to the boardroom, all Honeywell employees and representatives are expected to comply with all laws and regulations in the countries where we do business, and adhere to our Code of Business Conduct.

Sustainable Opportunity Policy:
Honeywell’s Commitment to Health, Safety, and the Environment

By integrating health, safety, and environmental considerations into all aspects of our business, we protect our employees, our communities, and the environment; achieve sustainable growth and accelerated productivity; drive compliance with all applicable regulations; and develop technologies that expand the sustainable capacity of our world. Our health, safety, and environmental management system reflects our values and helps us meet our business objectives.

Honeywell’s Sustainable Opportunity Policy is aligned with our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Management System, which is integrated into the Honeywell Operating System. Honeywell’s Vice President of Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability (HSES) has overall responsibility for the sustainability program. A Corporate Energy & Sustainability Team, led by the Vice President of HSES and the Vice President of Global Real Estate, helps drive the company’s greenhouse gas and energy efficiency goals.

Product Stewardship: New Product Introduction Procedure

Our Product Stewardship: New Product Introduction Procedure requires each of our businesses to establish and document a process to consider eco-efficiency criteria throughout the product lifecycle during new product development. Criteria to consider include:

  • Reduction of natural resources during manufacture and distribution;
  • Increased energy – efficiency of the product itself or because of its use;
  • Reduction in waste production;
  • Product reuse or recycling opportunities;
  • Opportunities for use of recycled or renewable production materials;
  • Reduction or elimination of classified toxic or hazardous materials;
  • Reduction in packaging.

Political Contributions

Honeywell engages responsibly in the political process. Our products and services are closely aligned with several key public policy priorities including safety, security, energy efficiency and clean energy generation.

Honeywell generally does not use corporate funds for political contributions to any party or candidate or in support of any ballot measure or political committee.
