We are increasingly aware of the effects that the many decisions we make at Carlisle have for our people, our customers, the communities where we do business, our suppliers, our investors and the environment. We are committed to continuing to find ways to become more economically, socially and environmentally responsible and in doing so, become a better global corporate citizen.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly essential element of our fundamental business strategy, to build stronger businesses that are critical to our long-term success and to enhance our value proposition for our customers. Using our core strengths in our diversified businesses we share innovations and best practices across our companies and across geographies, capitalizing on our competencies in order to build on our reputation for corporate responsibility.
Our values provide the framework for our commitment to corporate responsibility. This is supported and is a natural outgrowth of our operating principles and Carlisle’s Business Code of Ethics which states, in part:
“Ethical business conduct should exist at a level well above the minimum required by law. Honesty is not subject to equivocation at any time and we must always choose the course of highest integrity. A fundamental principle of business success is to treat all persons fairly. Everyone, including our competitors, is entitled to expect that our conduct will reflect the highest standards of honesty, integrity and fairness in all regards. When engaging the services of others, our choice should be made on the basis of the quality of the service and the competitiveness of the value. Our reputation is dependent upon exercising fairness, honesty and integrity in all dealings and transactions.”
Corporate Governance Documents
Carlisle leverages the strength of our portfolio and the power of our scale to drive innovations and improvements in our environmental stewardship and sustainability. As our business expands around the world, so does our corporate citizenship commitment and our focus on three strategic responsibility priorities – our people, our products and our impact.
