Ethics and Compliance

We're All Accountable

Effective governance needs a mechanism to ensure ethical codes are enforced. Employees at all levels of Cummins are empowered to help identify possible violations of the Cummins Code of Business Conduct, enabled by the Cummins Ethics Help Line. Where maintaining ethics is concerned, everyone at Cummins is part of the solution. Explore public Governance documents on our Investor Relations site.
