Policies and Positions

At Stericycle, we believe in operating with the highest ethical standards as part of our commitment to protect what matters.

As a trusted provider of business-to-business services in highly regulated areas, maintaining the highest levels of integrity and corporate ethics are integral to Stericycle’s culture. At Stericycle, we are guided by a comprehensive set of policies and positions that help clarify expectations for our organization while demonstrating our commitment to be a responsible corporate citizen.

Our Office of Ethics and Compliance (OEC) is responsible for managing and mitigating our ethics and compliance risk. Specific activities include maintaining our ethics policies and procedures; delivering awareness and training programs; monitoring and enforcing performance against our standards; supporting our ethics hotline; and conducting investigations where appropriate.

In 2020, Stericycle established Ethics Champions, a network of team members who volunteer to dedicate part of their time to working in partnership with the OEC to support our compliance program.  These team members serve as a focus group to OEC on new initiatives, support and drive compliance training, and serve as a local point of contact for ethics questions or concerns.

Our Code of Conduct reflects our deep commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all areas of our business. Indeed, it lies at the core of who we are as an organization and is the very foundation of our ethics and compliance program.

Use the Ethics Line to ask a question, raise a concern or file a report related to integrity in the workplace. Reports can be made anonymously 24/7 in your language. 

Our global Statement on Human Rights outlines our commitments to team members, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.  We commit to conduct our business in an ethical, respectful and sustainable manner.

Our global Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) Statement guides our commitment to safe, environmentally responsible and sustainable operations as we work to safeguard the people and communities we serve.

We understand that our integrity is closely tied to the suppliers and vendors with whom we work. As such, we require our suppliers and vendors to follow a Supplier Code of Conduct that aligns with our values and practices.

As part of our engagement in the political process, we have established this policy governing political contributions and expenditures by Stericycle, Inc. within the United States. The Company has adopted this policy, which is designed to help ensure that contributions comply with the law, are applied in a manner consistent with the Company's core values and protects and enhances shareholder value.

This Statement outlines our commitment to engage with the communities where we operate and to consider and reduce the environmental impacts that our operations may have on overburdened communities.
