A message from Mike Mussallem, Chairman and CEO
Our reputation and integrity are central to Edwards Lifesciences' ability to be successful globally. Integrity is a key ingredient in building and maintaining our relationships as trusted partners, both internally and externally.
At Edwards, our people are committed to integrity, honesty, openness and fairness. Edwards' Global Business Practice Standards, what we call the Titanium Book, is a practical guide to help us with business practice issues we face as a dynamic, growing corporation. It helps explain the universal principles governing our business, provides clarity about expectations and identifies resources that support these standards. We ask each of our employees to read this document carefully to be sure they understand its content and are willing to embrace its principles. We also depend on each employee to exercise intelligence, common sense and good judgment as they apply the principles in their work.
Our reputation must be guarded carefully and reinforced continuously through our actions. Our employees' performance and commitment to conducting Edwards' business in a manner consistent with our Global Business Practice Standards and Our Credo are essential to Edwards' continued success.
