In today’s competitive environment, we rely on the vision and principles outlined in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to guide our actions. Adhering to our code, complying with laws and regulations, and supporting fundamental human rights gives us a true compass and a strong foundation for the way we conduct business.
We meet the needs of our stakeholders by operating in accordance with our values — ethically, responsibly and sustainably.
We have long demonstrated our commitment to integrity and corporate responsibility, a promise that has only deepened as we have grown into one of the country's leading financial services companies. We do not tolerate unethical or inappropriate behavior. Every employee performance review includes a risk management goal that ensures employees are focused on and accountable for the ethical implications of their work. Detailed information about PNC’s corporate governance policies and procedures and other documents, including the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, can be found at pnc.com/corporategovernance.
In 2018, we launched our first Supplier Code of Conduct. Just as we expect our employees to uphold our corporate values, we encourage those who provide us with goods and services to follow similar practices and guidelines. Our code covers four key areas: Ethical Business Practices, Human Rights in the Workplace, Environmental Stewardship and Community Investments.

We trust the capabilities, character and judgment of our colleagues, and we treat each other with respect. Every employee is responsible for embodying not only our corporate value of Respect, but also all of our other values:
In alignment with our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we are committed to combatting modern slavery, including slavery, servitude, forced labor and human trafficking. We strongly support the Modern Slavery Act, which aims to eradicate modern slavery in commercial organizations with operations in the U.K. We are committed to helping ensure that there is no modern slavery, including human trafficking, in our supply chain or in any part of our business, as we believe it is our role to act ethically in all of our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to prevent all forms of slavery in our supply chains.
