Worldwide Business Conduct Manual (WBCM)
Our Worldwide Business Conduct Manual contains the global standards that must be followed to ensure we uphold P&G’s Purpose, Values and Principles in our daily work. The WCBM applies to all of the Company’s employees, officers and non-employee directors. We also expect our suppliers and other business partners to comply with all relevant portions of the manual. Portions of the Worldwide Business Conduct Manual comprise P&G’s Code of Ethics for SEC and New York Stock Exchange Regulatory Purposes, as further described in the Manual.
On 1 November 2010, P&G Company finalised a renewed version of our Worldwide Business Conduct Manual. The content of the new P&G Worldwide Business Conduct Manual is generally consistent with the prior version, in effect since 2005, but includes updates for new policy areas and other minor revisions.
