Values and ethics of TI

TI's products and markets have changed through the years, but our determination to maintain the values on which our company was founded remains true to this day. High ethical standards, a respect for individuals, a commitment to long-term relationships, a concern for the environment and a sense of duty to our communities – these are the principles that bind us together and make TI a company of which we can all be proud.

Innovation lies at the center of all we do, but great products alone, aren't enough to win in the long run. In our business, trust matters, and a reputation for integrity is our most effective marketing tool. Our customers choose TI, not only for our technology, but also because we treat them with respect, deal with them fairly and deliver on our promises. We strive to be a company they can count on, and that focus has played a huge role in our success.

Throughout our company history, TI's commitment to high ethical standards has served our people, our customers and our communities. But it has also been good for business. If you believe, in good faith, that TI's business or related activities are being conducted in an unethical manner or in a manner that is not consistent with applicable legal obligations, you are encouraged to report your concern to the TI Ethics Office or your supervisor. And you should do so without fear of retaliation.

Our determination to do the right thing demands that we look at problems from many perspectives and consider the full impact of our actions. As a result, we develop solutions that are more efficient, more creative and more effective.
