Electronic Arts Global Code of Conduct
Electronic Arts has long had an established set of values that reflect a clear vision for the Company and how we do business. These values – which we call “EA Actions” – provide a roadmap for our growth, govern our relationships with each other, with our partners and our customers, and should be used by our employees to guide their day-to-day decision-making.
The EA Actions:
- Go big | Take the right risks | Back our bets | Lead
Think Consumers First
- Listen and respond | Deliver beyond their expectations | Build lifetime customers
Create Quality and Innovation
- Deliver products and services that surpass expectations | Be relentless about improving quality | Take creative risks
Act with Integrity
- Do the right thing | Trust others and support their decisions | Be transparent
- Deliver on commitments | Always do what we say | Play our positions | Deliver and reward results
Learn and Grow
- Work hard, play hard | Develop yourself and others | Measure your improvement | Share knowledge generously
The EA Actions form the foundation of our Global Code of Conduct, which we expect each of our employees (including executive officers) and directors to read, understand and abide by. These values are reflected in a number of important Company policies, including those described below.
Integrity and Fair Dealing in the Marketplace. While EA competes vigorously in all of its business activities, we remain committed to dealing fairly with our customers as well as our competitors and conducting our activities in accordance with applicable antitrust and competition laws. This includes complying with all applicable requirements under the U.S. federal and state antitrust laws and other applicable U.S. laws and government regulations, as set out in our U.S. Antitrust Policy, and the antitrust and competition laws of the various territories where we do business. Since we are a global enterprise, we must also ensure integrity in our operations worldwide, and compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is a part of our global efforts. The FCPA is a federal anti-bribery law that makes it unlawful for any U.S. citizen or any representative of a U.S. corporation to give anything of value to a foreign official in order to obtain business. More information about our antitrust and FCPA principles can be found in EA’s U.S. Antitrust Policy, the International Business Activities Policy, and from the Legal Department.
Does this mean EA's TOS removes ethics from EA's business practices/model? (I.e...nullifies EA's very own code of conduct?)
