UTC’s Code of Ethics is the foundation of our culture. It was first adopted in 1990, is an expression of fundamental values, and represents a framework for decision-making.
CODE OF ETHICS
The UTC Code of Ethics does not merely require compliance with laws. It embodies a commitment to positive behaviors that build trust, promote respect, and demonstrate integrity. We honor our commitments, communicate openly, and hold ourselves accountable. Operating within the framework of the Code, UTC creates and sustains value for its stakeholders.
Implemented in 1986, UTC’s Ombudsman / DIALOG program allows employees to raise questions or concerns confidentially. Since inception, we’ve received more than 91,500 inquiries. Over the past five years, approximately 80 percent of inquiries requested change, and about half have resulted in change.
