Vertiv Pillars of Ethics & Compliance

At Vertiv, we are committed to doing business in accordance with the highest ethical standards, and we do that through living our core values.

The purpose of this Code of Conduct (our “Code”) is to guide all employees and members of the board of directors (“Board Members”) of Vertiv Holdings Co and its affiliates (collectively, “Vertiv”) around the world on how we do business. This Code outlines the actions and behaviors expected from every Vertiv team member so that all who interact with Vertiv can consistently rely on our integrity. Unless otherwise indicated in this Code, the term “employees” includes its officers.

Report an Ethics Violation

 
Revised Code of Conduct

On November 24, 2021, the Company amended the Vertiv Code of Conduct (formerly titled the Vertiv Code of Ethics).  This amendment did not change the values and principles of the Code; rather the Company revised the Code to:

  • Reorganize the Code so as to more effectively group key concepts together to further enhance reader experience;
  • Expand certain sections that are exceptionally nuanced and that continue to evolve from a regulatory perspective, to provide current guidance and additional real world examples;
  • Provide additional specificity in certain sections based on the Company’s continued growth and areas of operational focus; and
  • Further emphasize certain concepts that are important to the Company’s core values, including diversity and equal opportunity, corporate social responsibility, and protection against company waste of assets.

The updated Vertiv Code of Conduct has become effective for all Vertiv subsidiaries except for Vertiv Integrated System GmbH and Vertiv GmbH (both pending local approval).  The full text of the Code has been posted to the Company’s website (http://www.vertiv.com).

Anti-Corruption

Vertiv has established internal policies and controls that enforce compliance by all employees, officers, and directors with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, U.K. Bribery Act, the Brazil Clean Company Act 2014 (Law No. 12,846), and related anti-corruption laws of the countries in which we do business. Vertiv employees, officers, and directors are prohibited from directly or indirectly offering, giving, soliciting, or receiving any form of bribe, kickback, or other corrupt payment, or anything of value, to or from any person or organization, including government agencies, individual government officials, and private companies or their employees under any circumstances. This prohibition applies worldwide, with no exception to perceived customs, local practices, or competitive conditions. Further, this prohibition applies equally to any person or company acting on Vertiv’s behalf, such as sales agents, distributors, representatives, service providers, contractors, suppliers, and joint venture partners.

  • knowingly use a competitor’s confidential information or trade secrets without express written permission from such competitor;

Supplier Code of Conduct

Vertiv expects its suppliers to project its values and principles, to stay current with technology, to act with integrity, and to treat people and the environment with respect. These actions reflect Vertiv’s priorities. In this way, we partner with only the highest caliber suppliers that demonstrate social responsibility and a commitment to fairness and honesty.

Vertiv has established a Supplier Code of Conduct and we expect each supplier to adhere to its principles. Vertiv may discontinue its relationship with a supplier that fails to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct.

Efforts to Prevent Slavery and Human Trafficking

Vertiv is committed to complying with all applicable laws and employment regulations where we operate and does not engage in forced labor or human trafficking.  Vertiv’s policies oppose—and we prohibit our suppliers from using—any form of forced, bonded, or indentured labor.

Conflict Minerals

Vertiv supports efforts to end the human suffering and environmental impact that have been associated with mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries. Tracing the origins of minerals throughout a global supply chain is a complex process, and this can only be accomplished with the cooperation and support of a vast number of industries and stakeholders.

Vertiv continues to work with its suppliers and other stakeholders to develop and implement policies and systems to reduce the risk that minerals in our supply chain come from mines that finance or benefit armed groups in the DRC region, and Vertiv expects our supply base to acquire minerals from responsible sources.

A Commitment to Diversity

At Vertiv, we are a company engineered to deliver solutions for critical technologies.  And those solutions often come from having a variety of viewpoints and perspectives at the table.  So it should come as no surprise that there's a spirit of inclusion found in everything we do.  Having a wider range of experiences to draw from doesn't just make us a diverse company.  It makes us a better company.

Vertiv works hard to create a global workplace that supports and promotes diversity, embraces inclusion and cultivates respect for the individual.  We believe that bringing together bright, enthusiastic, and talented people from various backgrounds promotes the birth of new ideas and an exciting energy level.

As a result, we have an active program to recruit and hire women and minorities to our management ranks.  We seek to create an employer of choice environment in terms of promotions, transfers, compensation, benefits, career mentoring, company-sponsored training, tuition assistance and social and recreational programs for our employees.

Vertiv's Equal Employment Opportunity policy ensures that there will be no discrimination or harassment against an employee or applicant on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability, national origin, veteran status or any other factor considered unlawful by applicable laws and regulations.
