It takes more than strong performance to build a great company. Leaders embrace an unwavering commitment to embodying core values when serving their customers. At TE, we demonstrate – each day – our commitment to our standards of ethical excellence. It also requires an unwavering commitment to the core values of TE. We are committed to conducting our business in responsible ways that provide an advantage to our employees, customers, and shareholders by making a sustainable and positive impact in our communities.

It is important that we focus our corporate responsibility efforts on those issues where we can have the greatest impact. For this reason, we undertook a materiality analysis to identify the corporate responsibility issues of greatest significance to both TE and to the broader communities in which we operate. 


We must demand of ourselves and of each other the highest standards of individual and corporate integrity. We safeguard company assets. We comply with all laws and company policies. We are dedicated to diversity, fair treatment, mutual respect and trust.


We honor the commitments we make and take personal responsibility for all actions and results. We create an operating discipline of continuous improvement that is an integral part of our culture.


We foster an environment that encourages innovation, creativity, excellence and results through teamwork. We practice leadership that teaches, inspires and promotes full participation and career development. We encourage open and effective communication and interaction.


We recognize that innovation is the foundation of our business. We challenge ourselves to develop new and improved ideas for all that we do. We encourage, expect and value creativity, openness to change and fresh approaches.
