Code of Ethics
For our company, as well as our employees, reputation is priceless. At DGC International, our reputation as a responsible, client-focused company and a respected corporate citizen is not given, but earned.
Our success is driven by reaching our client and business goals, but equally important is the way we achieve them. Our clients trust us to deliver business results with the expectation that we do so in an ethical, responsible manner.
Ethical violations at any level in the organization can quickly destroy that trust and confidence. Every employee works toward continuing to earn the trust placed in us by our clients. Our Code of Conduct governs DGC International business practices around the world.
DGC International is a proud member of the Defense Industry Initiative (DII). DII is a non-profit organization that combines the common dedication of signatory companies to a culture and practice of ethics and integrity in all business dealings with the United States Department of Defense.
