The mission of Tetra Tech's Finance organization includes promotion of professional conduct in the practice of financial management throughout our company. Tetra Tech's Chief Executive Officer ("CEO"), Chief Financial Officer ("CFO"), Corporate Controller and other employees of the Finance organization hold an important and elevated role in corporate governance in that they are uniquely capable and empowered to ensure that all stakeholders' interests are appropriately balanced, protected and preserved.

This Finance Code of Professional Conduct ("Finance Code") embodies principles to which we are expected to adhere and advocate. These tenets for ethical business conduct encompass rules regarding both individual and peer responsibilities, as well as responsibilities to Tetra Tech employees, the public and other stakeholders. The CEO, CFO and Finance organization employees are expected to abide by this Finance Code, as well as all applicable Tetra Tech business conduct standards and policies or guidelines in Tetra Tech's employee handbook relating to areas covered by this Finance Code. Any violations of this Finance Code may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

All employees covered by this Finance Code will:

  • Act with honesty and integrity, avoiding actual or apparent conflicts of interest in their personal and professional relationships.
