Halliburton has a longstanding ethics and compliance program administered by our Global Ethics and Compliance group under the leadership of the Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer and the Audit Committee. Our anti-bribery, anti-corruption, and fair competition policies and procedures apply to all employees, contractors, suppliers, agents, consultants, and others acting on our behalf.
Conduct business with integrity, choosing the ethical course of action when confronted with challenging circumstances, promoting a speak-up culture free of retaliation, and treating our employees and stakeholders honestly and fairly.
Ethics and Compliance Training
Halliburton requires all employees and contractors with access to our systems to complete in-person or online Code of Business Conduct (COBC) training every two years. We rely on our Local Ethics Officers (LEOs) to supplement this education by maintaining awareness of ethics and compliance issues on an ongoing basis and serving as a resource for our employees and contractors. We have 55 LEOs in 40 countries who model ethical behavior, answer questions, provide guidance, take reports of suspected misconduct, and deliver quarterly Ethics Moments and biweekly Ethics Topics. In 2021, LEOs conducted 2,699 presentations.
This year, Halliburton provided relevant, timely, and targeted virtual ethics and compliance training to employees around the globe — and our LEOs played a critical part in this accomplishment.
Anti-Bribery, Anti-Corruption, and Fair Competition
Our anti-bribery, anti-corruption, and fair competition policies and procedures apply to all employees, contractors, suppliers, agents, consultants, and others acting on our behalf.

We included our commitment to these principles in our COBC, which can be found on the COBC page of our website.

At Halliburton, we expect our employees to conduct business in a manner that aligns with our core values and in compliance with laws that include the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the UK Bribery Act 2010, and similar applicable laws around the world. Additionally, we expect our people to compete fairly and to win business in a legal and ethical manner, which includes refraining from making unfair or disparaging comments about our competitors and their offerings.
All employees with relevant job functions and those working in high-risk countries complete anti-bribery and anti-corruption training. This training emphasizes Halliburton’s core commitment to conducting business the REDWay (Responsibly, Ethically, and Diligently) in all that we do. It highlights international business relationship management and due diligence and provides guidance on ethical conduct when providing business hospitality and charitable contributions. In 2021, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Global Ethics and Compliance group conducted virtual training sessions to supplement our web-based anti-corruption training courses.
