Ethics and Integrity

OUR CODE OF CONDUCT

The Toro Company's Code of Conduct is the cornerstone of our ethics and compliance program and is the foundation upon which we will continue to build our legacy as an ethical organization. Our Code of Conduct serves as a guidepost of who we want to be as a company and how we want our employees to behave - it provides the framework for ethical decision-making. Every employee plays a critical role in safeguarding and maintaining our reputation and is responsible for proper conduct every day, with every business decision and action. Our commitment to conducting business in an ethical manner results in The Toro Company being a trusted partner to all of our stakeholders – employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders, communities and others.

Our commitment to ethical conduct is further evidenced through concerted and innovative methods to educate and engage our employees in how to apply the key principles of our Code, including through robust, interactive training, communications, videos and even humor, when appropriate, to help ensure that our ethical principles resonate across our enterprise. In addition, we provide training to our global employee population, including management, on the importance of complying with anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws. Our Board of Directors annually receives a report from management on our Code of Conduct and Ethics program.

Employees are also encouraged to trust their instincts and immediately report any concerns in good faith without fear of retaliation. As such, employees can report concerns anonymously, if they so choose. To facilitate reporting and/or inquiries on our Code of Conduct, we offer a global employee helpline with translation in 8 languages. Our management is committed to responding to concerns or ideas submitted through our helpline. As just one example, after receiving a comment from an employee through our helpline, we eliminated the use of Styrofoam in our headquarters’ cafeteria and switched to using compostable containers.
