Code of Conduct & Compliance

The Stellantis Code of Conduct

At the launch of Stellantis in January 2021, we reviewed the standards by which we would act and hold each other accountable and defined our Company purpose: “Powered by our diversity, we lead the way the world moves”. This led to the definition of our four core values which are also central to our Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan: “We Are Customer Centric, We Win Together, We Are Agile & Innovative, We Care for the Future”.

These core values underpin the Stellantis Code of Conduct, which is integral to our approach and our decision-making processes and provides guidance on what is expected of all employees and other stakeholders. The Code reflects our commitment to a culture of integrity, responsibility, and ethical behavior in all areas of our business and along the entire value chain, and in compliance with the applicable laws, regulations, and policies.

Integrity is a driver of our competitiveness and sustainable growth. It is also the pillar upon which we build and maintain our reputation as a Company which our customers, workforce and other stakeholders can trust and rely upon.

The Code of Conduct was approved by the Stellantis N.V. Board of Directors in March 2021 and amended in February 2024. It applies to the members of the Board itself, as well as to all Stellantis officers and senior management, full- and part-time employees, and temporary and contract workers. The Company also expects other stakeholders, including suppliers, dealers, distributors, and joint venture partners, to always act with integrity and in accordance with the Stellantis Code of Conduct.
