EnPro Industries Supplier Code of Conduct & Business Ethics

EnPro Industries, Inc. and its affiliates (“EnPro”) are committed to the highest standards in all aspects of its business.  To confirm that commitment, we are putting forth our EnPro Industries Supplier Code of Conduct & Business Ethics (the ”Code”).  This Code emphasizes Human Rights, Diversity, Environmental Sustainability and Ethics; it elaborates on the legal and ethical principles that we value and hold in high esteem, including our three core values of safety, excellence and respect.

EnPro expects all entities that supply goods, materials or services to EnPro (“Suppliers”) to abide by these principles and standards.  The Code outlines the minimum criteria that we require all of our Suppliers (and their sub suppliers) to comply with in every respect. 

Suppliers must observe and follow all applicable laws and regulations, and conduct business in a way that promotes high levels of integrity and transparency.   Obviously, the Code cannot address every conceivable situation that Suppliers face.  It does set out general legal and ethical principles that are to be applied globally, and obligate Suppliers to use sound judgement in applying them.
