Acting Ethically Living our values every day
Our ethics are ingrained in the culture of Gap Inc. and inform how we run our business each day. We continually review and update our practices as our business evolves.
All of our people are required to complete training on and uphold our ethical standards and compliance procedures. Our Code of Business Conduct (COBC) serves as our ethical compass for the commitment we make to our stakeholders, customers and one another.
Our employees are encouraged to use our open door process for discussing any concerns with their supervisor, next level manager or human resources representative. Employees may also contact our Global Integrity team, who oversees our COBC program.
Our Code of Business Conduct serves as our ethical compass for the commitment we make to our stakeholders, customers and one another
to do what’s right.
A confidential COBC hotline, email box and web portal are also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to employees and anyone who conducts business with Gap Inc. or is affected by our business. We have investigative teams that process and address complaints received through any channel, including our COBC hotlines. All information is logged and cases are addressed and closed.
We need to be diligent about corruption risks, particularly in developing countries with limited rule of law. We have a company-wide program for monitoring, enforcing and addressing any issues related to our Anti-Corruption Policy, which combines elements from our COBC with anti-bribery requirements under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and other similar laws around the world. The policy and related training programs help employees recognize and avoid corrupt business practices in all aspects of Gap Inc.’s business.
