Ethics and Compliance
At Abercrombie & Fitch Co., we conduct business with a dedication to our values: honesty, integrity, respect, and doing the right thing. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“Code”) and our Whistleblower Policy (“Policy”) exist to support those commitments by giving us not only the guidance and resources to ensure we are acting ethically at all times, but also the means to report any behavior not aligned with these values. Our Board of Directors and Company management have adopted these policies, and they reflect the importance that we place on ethical conduct. We have high standards, and our Code and Policy are our written commitment to uphold them. Following them helps us protect the integrity, reputation, and future of our brands. It also helps us fulfill our commitments to all our stakeholders and the public, and ultimately contributes to our success.
While we look to the Code for guidance, it is our actions that ultimately define us. Acting with integrity and honesty ensures that we meet our high standards and enhance our ethical culture. Everyone at A&F Co.—no matter where they are located—is responsible for following the Code, regardless of seniority or title. We also expect our suppliers and other business partners to acknowledge and align with the principles of our Code when doing business with A&F Co.
