Conducting our business in accordance with the highest ethical standards is a responsibility we all share at Thomson Reuters.
Whether dealing with customers or suppliers, our actions are guided by a clear set of principles that align with our corporate values.
It all starts with our commitment to customers. Fulfilling their business needs with honesty, integrity and good judgment drives everything we do.
We fulfill this commitment through a variety of initiatives, including the following:
In every business decision and transaction, we endeavor to do the right thing - and we expect our suppliers to share this pledge. This means conducting business with integrity while complying with all laws, rules and standards of conduct that apply to us in the many countries where we do business.
We develop strong business relationships with high-quality suppliers that adhere to ethical standards equivalent to our own. These are clearly spelled out in the Thomson Reuters Supply Chain Ethical Code.
Today's solutions are not the answers to tomorrow's challenges. That's why we look for suppliers committed to continuous innovation and improvement in products, services and processes.
Thomson Reuters purchases from suppliers across a wide spectrum of product and service categories.
Focused on Customers
Understanding, anticipating and acting to fulfill our customers' needs is crucial to our growth. We achieve this through our Front-End Customer Strategy - a fact-based, customer-centric mindset and business practice that drives our business, as well as a set of tools for understanding each customer's workflow. This insight drives innovation that delivers real value to our customers. Responsibility for innovation and customer strategy rests with our Chief Strategy Officer
