AECOM succeeds on the merits of its own excellence and is committed to conducting its business ethically, honestly, and with integrity.
Corruption not only violates these ideals, but it is also illegal and prohibited throughout the world. As a U.S.-based company, all AECOM businesses must comply with U.S. domestic anticorruption laws that prohibit bribery within the United States and with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that prohibits corrupt payments outside of the United States. Ethical business conduct may also require compliance with other applicable anticorruption laws, regulations, and conventions, including the U.K. Bribery Act (UKBA); the Criminal Law of the People’s Republic of China (PRC Criminal Law); the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) anti-bribery convention; the World Bank Guidelines on Preventing and Combating Fraud and Corruption; and all other applicable laws in every country in which AECOM does business.
AECOM’s Anticorruption Policy does not describe all of the specific requirements of anticorruption laws or anticipate every possible situation. Rather, the purpose of the policy is to describe general ethical standards that AECOM employees and its third parties must abide by and to provide guidance on detecting and preventing corrupt practices. The policy applies to AECOM and its subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees, intermediaries, sub-consultants, other contracted third parties, and any other persons performing similar functions on behalf of AECOM worldwide.
