Compliance & Ethics

Compliance & Ethics
CDM Smith is founded on an un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to in­tegrity and ex­cel­lence.

Since the firm’s founding in 1947, we have upheld a policy to conduct all business in a lawful and ethical man­ner. We are com­mit­ted to an en­vi­ron­ment where open, hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tions are the ex­pec­ta­tion, not the ex­cep­tion. We hold one an­other ac­count­able to live our core val­ues of ex­cel­lence, ini­tia­tive, team­work, shared com­mit­ment and in­tegrity every day.

Our Code of Business Conduct sets forth the guid­ing prin­ci­ples for con­duct­ing busi­ness with the high­est eth­i­cal stan­dards. Every CDM Smith em­ployee and all our busi­ness part­ners have a shared com­mit­ment to meet these stan­dards and con­duct busi­ness with in­tegrity.

CDM Smith also pro­vides an anony­mous re­port­ing sys­tem for ad­dress­ing eth­i­cal con­cerns and ask­ing pol­icy-re­lated ques­tions. The CDM Smith In­tegrity Line is also avail­able to third par­ties – cus­tomers, sup­pli­ers and the pub­lic.
