Excerpted from the “EWI Code of Business Conduct”
 
Every EWI Associate occupies a position of trust. We must be particularly sensitive to any behavior that might erode that trust in EWI or in our individual fairness, impartiality, or the good faith of our acts or decisions.
 
A “conflict of interest” occurs when your private interests interfere – or even appear to interfere – in any way with the interests of the company, its clients, and stakeholders. Business relationships or situations which involve personal or financial interests, including involving you or your immediate family or friends and your EWI job responsibilities, must be carefully avoided. If you or any member of your family has a financial or other personal interest in any client, supplier or other firm that could affect the objectivity of business decisions in which you are involved, you must promptly advise EWI’s Ethics Officer and disclose in writing the nature of your interest.
 
Disclose any personal interests which could raise questions about the objectivity of your business decisions.
 
In particular, if you are recommending or approving the recommendation of a particular supplier or taking any similar action and you know that a member of your family or that of another EWI Associate is employed by or controls any interest in that supplier, you must disclose this fact in writing to EWI’s Ethics Officer as soon as it is learned by you. Close, non-relative personal relationships which could lead to questions about the objectivity of your judgment should also be similarly disclosed.
 
Before serving as an independent consultant to, or as a director, trustee, officer, or employee of, a company, organization, or government agency that EWI deals with or one which is involved in national defense work, you must obtain the written approval of your Executive Team Member and EWI’s Ethics Officer, even if that service is uncompensated.
 
Potential conflicts can involve clients, suppliers, present or prospective employees, stakeholders, or members of the communities in which we live and work. Even if you are the most conscientious person, a conflicting interest may influence you and the mere existence of that interest may cause the good faith of your and EWI’s acts to be questioned. Because others tend to judge a situation by what they think it is, avoiding the appearance of a conflict can be as important as avoiding an actual conflict itself. If you have any questions in this area, ask for help and guidance from your Executive Team member or EWI’s Ethics Officer.
