Document Effective Date April 2022
At Argo AI (“Argo”), we are on a mission to make the world’s streets and roadways safe, accessible, and useful for all. Our purpose is to reimagine the human journey.
Argo was founded on the principles underlying safety-critical systems. Everything we do – from development and testing to road operations and strategic planning – revolves around the safety of our employees and the communities in which we operate.
To build self-driving technology you can trust, we are determined to uphold the highest standards of excellence everywhere we do business. We are committed to finding solutions and building a responsible business environment based on honesty and respect – that is the way we treat each other and the way we treat our business partners.
At Argo, we are determined to adhere to all applicable international standards on responsible business conduct. We are committed to fair competition and zero tolerance for corruption.
We acknowledge that our business partners play an important role in our adherence to and upholding of these standards. Only through successful collaboration with our partners in the supply chain can we build self-driving technology that the public can trust.
This Supplier Code of Conduct (“Code”) outlines Argo’s commitments to these standards and our expectations for our suppliers. This Code applies to all of the suppliers, contractors, consultants, agents, and business partners with whom Argo does business (collectively, “Suppliers”). We expect our Suppliers to communicate and apply the Code and relevant policies to employees, agents, and other persons involved in the provision of goods and services to Argo, including those operating throughout our Suppliers’ supply chain. Argo reserves the right to ask any Supplier to complete a risk assessment, the results of which may result in remediation activities. While the Code outlines minimum standards in some areas, we encourage Suppliers to strive to undertake additional relevant actions.
In the event a Supplier knows or suspects a violation of an applicable law, regulation, standard, or this Code relating to the Supplier’s relationship or business interests with Argo, such Supplier must report the issue directly to their Argo business contact, or, if the Supplier wishes to remain anonymous, either online at https://argo.ethicspoint.com or via telephone at 844-418-4427 (US) or 0800 1814348 (Germany).
