Code of Business Conduct

As a global health care leader, our success depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take each and every day.

Our Code of Business Conduct (1.6 Mb) is a critically important document that describes our company’s expectations of every employee as we represent Abbott in our daily work. It provides a foundation for our responsibilities and behaviors that will help us make the best choices for Abbott, for ourselves, and for the many people we serve.

Our commitment to do business responsibly

We actively oppose fraud, bribery and corruption, and we respect applicable laws, which is why we have an anti-corruption policy that commits us to:

  • Doing business in the right way
  • Never offer or give anything of value with the intention of obtaining a business advantage in an unfair or improper manner
  • Evaluate carefully when selecting third parties and intermediaries. Our reputation is also in your hands.
