Doing Right

We foster a culture guided by the ethics of mutual respect, integrity and honesty. At Southwire, we are committed to supporting those values in every aspect of our business and working lives, and we promise transparency and responsiveness when challenges arise.


Upholding our values means fostering our commitment and obligation to ethical business in everything we do. At Southwire, our strong and engaged culture ensures that transparency and responsibility guides our decisions and actions.

Ethics, anti-corruption and transparency are the foundation of our strong, sustainable company. As a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Southwire fully supports Principle 10 – Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery. In addition, we recognize that customers compare suppliers according to their own standards or compliance requirements. By operating in an ethical, transparent manner in all our operations globally, we earn our license to operate while also minimizing the risk to our company’s reputation.
We also recognize that Doing Right includes supporting supplier diversity as an important aspect of a sustainable supply chain. Our Supplier Diversity program ensures that Southwire identifies qualified small businesses including those owned and operated by minorities, females or veterans; and provides opportunities to foster the development and advancement of diverse businesses, when and where practical.
