KBR promotes an organizational culture that encourages ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance with the law. It is the personal responsibility of every KBR employee and agent to observe the standards of KBR's Code of Business Conduct which exceeds the requirements of the definition of a "Code of Ethics" as set forth in the regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") issued pursuant to Section 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Compliance with the Law and honesty and integrity in our dealings with others will not be sacrificed in the name of profits.
Company policy requires Directors, employees and agents to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. Directors and employees must practice fair dealing, honesty and integrity in every aspect of dealing with other Company employees, the public, the business community, shareholders, customers, suppliers, competitors and government authorities. When acting on behalf of the Company, Directors and employees shall not take unfair advantage through manipulation, concealment, abuse of privileged information, misrepresentation of material facts, or other unfair dealings or practices.
Directors, employees and agents are also prohibited from receiving, directly or indirectly, anything of a significant value (other than salary, wages or other ordinary compensation from the Company) in connection with a transaction entered into by the Company.
