Trinseo’s Associate General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer chairs the Trinseo Ethics and Compliance Committee, which reports to the Audit Committee of Trinseo’s Board of Directors and is comprised of 11 senior Trinseo executives who represent diverse functions and geographies.
Most Trinseo employees embrace the company’s high ethical standards. Occasionally, however, individuals may act in a way that reflects poorly on Trinseo and its people.
Trinseo encourages employees who know or suspect that a legal or ethical violation has occurred or is taking place to speak up and report the situation.
Trinseo has zero tolerance for any reprisal or retaliation against a person who reports a known or suspected violation in good faith. Trinseo will take disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, against any employee involved in threatened, attempted, or actual retaliation.
We provide periodic updates on Trinseo compliance efforts using various internal communications tools, such as:
Trinseo has contracted with NAVEX Global ‒ a worldwide leader in ethics and compliance programs ‒ to provide a hotline, which allows anonymous reporting of ethics and compliance concerns or allegations where legally possible. Any individual inside or outside the company who has a concern about ethics and/or compliance at Trinseo is encouraged to report the issue.
