Our success depends on our people and how we conduct our business. We pursue our business objectives with integrity and full compliance with all laws. It's not only the right thing to do; it makes good business sense.
USSTC’s Compliance & Integrity Program, led by the company’s Compliance Officer, guides our compliance efforts.
Key elements of our Compliance & Integrity Program include:
- The Altria Code of Conduct – The code provides an overview of the laws and policies that govern the activities of Altria and its companies, and reflects a commitment to protect those who seek advice, raise concerns or report misconduct.
- The Integrity HelpLine and Integrity WebLine – Our employees understand the importance of asking compliance-related questions and reporting potential non-compliance issues. Employees can turn to many resources, including supervisors, compliance officers and Altria’s Compliance & Integrity department. They may also report anonymously through our Integrity HelpLine and Integrity WebLine. An independent third-party vendor manages these 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week resources. We also make it clear that retaliation will not be tolerated against employees who raise good faith compliance concerns.
