Code of Ethics
Operating in an ethical manner is the foundation for ensuring Momentive and its operating companies - Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. (MSC) and Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (MPM) - comply with the letter and the spirit of the law. Momentive values its reputation for integrity. We strive to adhere to the highest ethical standards in the conduct of our business and to comply with all laws and regulations that are applicable to the business. Our Board of Directors and Shareholders expect honest and ethical conduct from every associate. Each associate has a responsibility to maintain and advance the ethical values of the Company. We are judged not only by the business results that we achieve but also by how we achieve them. We believe that organizations that operate ethically and with integrity build value over time and have the best chance for long-term success.
MSC's Code of Business Ethics and MPM's Code of Conduct provides guidelines on the high standards of integrity and the conduct expected of every associate. It cannot address every situation that associates may encounter but is intended as a source of guiding principles. MSC's Code of Business Ethics and MPM's Code of Conduct also underscores a commitment to our stakeholders to operate our facilities in a safe and responsible manner.
The MSC and MPM Board of Directors is ultimately responsible for the implementation of the respective Codes. The General Counsel of MSC and MPM serves as our Compliance Officer to assist in the administration the Codes.
