The Reed Elsevier Code of Ethics and Business Conduct is a guide to the way we go about achieving our business goals and helps us behave in an open, honest, ethical and principled manner. It incorporates the provisions of the UN Global Compact to which Reed Elsevier is a signatory.

In 2012, we updated the Code to ensure its ongoing currency and clarity.

Since being updated, the revised Code has been disseminated to our employees worldwide and all employees have received related online training.
