Pioneering new ideas while also acting with the highest standards of integrity are key principles that have gotten us to where we are today. In fact, we believe that integrity and honesty are the foundation of a productive working environment and a strong company. When Comcast and NBCUniversal joined together, we created a new companybut our commitment to integrity is something we never want to change.
While our combined know-how has made us a leader in transforming the media, entertainment and communications industries, it's our actionshow we perform day in and day outthat will ensure our success. It's as simple as doing the right thing and treating people the right way.
As we innovate together, our brands continue to stand for integrity, trust and respect. Our Code of Conduct is the common framework for operating with integrity, the principles that we must apply every day in all we do. I am personally asking you to commit to following the Code of Conduct as a guide for your interactions with our customers, our viewers, our fellow employees, our business partners, and anyone else with whom you come in contact.
Since no code or policy can spell out the appropriate behavior for every situation, you should talk with your supervisoror refer to any of the resources listed throughout the Codewhen you have questions or concerns. Each of us is responsible for knowing when to speak up, asking tough questions and reporting any possible violation of the Code of Conduct. Remember, our policy strictly prohibits retaliation of any kind for reporting in good faith a suspected violation of the Code.
We each hold our company's reputation in our hands. We want the world to recognize us as a company that not only delivers for our shareholders, customers and viewers, but one that does so with an unwavering commitment to integrity. With your help, we will do just that.
