How our Compliance and Ethics Program guides our way

Zurn Elkay Water Solutions maintains a comprehensive Compliance and Ethics Program that reflects the values and principles laid out in the United Nations Global Compact Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Principles

It’s designed to ensure that, throughout our company, we fulfill the expectations for our leaders, associates, agents and suppliers to comply with the laws and regulations that govern our industry and to act with integrity, respect and good judgment.

These are some of the program’s key elements:

  • We have a Code of Business Conduct & Ethics that steers behavior at all levels of our company, defining responsibilities, providing resources and guiding training on anti-corruption policies and procedures. It covers topics such as conflicts of interest, insider trading, data privacy, and employment issues such as harassment and discrimination. Associates are trained on the Code annually.

  • We have a well-established Ethics Reporting Program that is intended to discourage misconduct, fraud and abuse, and to discover and address these issues if they occur. Associates and vendors can report claims through a variety of channels, including our confidential 24/7 Ethics Hotline, our website, email, mail, in-person discussions or externally through government regulators. 

  • Our Anti-Corruption Law Policy is made available to all associates in multiple languages. Associates in certain relevant job functions including legal, finance, sales, business development, supply chain and logistics are required to take anti-corruption training on at least a biennial basis. Training includes questions about ethics, business practices and reporting comfort, a sign-off on the Anti-Corruption Law Policy and a Certification of Completion.

  • For governance, the Zurn Elkay Office of General Counsel manages the Compliance and Ethics Program and regularly briefs the CEO and Board of Directors on related matters. The Board of Directors’ Audit Committee oversees the program and reports to the Board on it annually.
