Thorpe is committed to compliance with the letter and spirit of foreign and domestic anti-corruption laws.

Thorpe values open and transparent communication. Thorpe expects employees and business partners to report known or suspected misconduct involving Thorpe, even if they are in no way involved with the misconduct itself. The company can only do something about misconduct if it knows about it.
When concerns about integrity arise, we encourage employees to go to their supervisors, Human Resource managers, or other Thorpe Senior Managers. If their integrity concerns are not resolved, or they do not feel comfortable discussing them with anyone within the company, they can report their concern by mail, phone or Internet to the Thorpe Anti-Corruption Compliance Officer.
