How we manage enterprise risk

At RTX, we aim to be world-class in everything we do — including our compliance with U.S. and other national laws. Every employee is responsible for ensuring that our business is conducted in compliance with these laws and with our Code of Conduct. Our Enterprise Risk Management assessments measure compliance risks, deploy risk mitigation plans and track implementation for five key areas:


RTX has an aggressive antitrust compliance program that promotes and protects competition. We prohibit actions and behavior that support a company’s monopoly or unreasonably restrains competition.


RTX does not offer or accept bribes, kickbacks, facilitating payments or anything of value that could improperly influence — or appear to influence — a business decision. Doing so is in direct conflict with our commitment to fair competition. We compete on the merits of our products, services and people each and every day.

Data Privacy and Security

RTX is committed to protecting the personal and proprietary information of its customers, employees, contractors and business partners.

Government Contracts

RTX focuses on competing fairly, delivering quality products and services, adhering to government accounting and pricing requirements, and the timely and accurate submission of data to the government.

Global Trade

As a leading U.S. importer and supplier of controlled products and technologies to the U.S. Department of Defense, other national defense establishments, and various domestic and international customers, RTX is committed to conducting business in full compliance with all U.S. and other national laws and regulations governing exports, imports, anti-boycotts, economic sanctions and embargoes.

In accordance with recent sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union, United Kingdom and others, we have suspended operations in Russia and suspended all sales and support services to Russia’s civil aviation industry.

How we pursue anti-corruption initiatives

RTX strives to earn the respect of our customers and shareholders based on the quality of our products and services as well as how we do business. We face a wide range of business and compliance risks, including those associated with corruption.

It is the policy of RTX to ensure compliance by its leaders, employees and covered persons, including representatives, consultants and other contracted third parties, with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the U.K. Bribery Act and all other relevant anti-corruption laws. RTX has a zero tolerance policy for corrupt behavior.

In standing by our principles and values, we fight corruption and support the global development of fair markets. Our success relies on abiding by our core principles — regardless of what might be seen as customary or acceptable in a given market.

Our commitment to anti-corruption includes the following:

Winning Business Solely on the Merits

RTX conducts all of its business solely on the merits. We will not bribe anyone to obtain or retain business or secure any other advantage, nor allow anyone to do so for our benefit, in any market — public or private — anywhere. As a general rule, employees cannot seek or accept any payments from anyone doing business with or seeking to do business with RTX.

Books and Records

RTX maintains accurate and transparent books and records. All assets, liabilities and transactions must be promptly and accurately reflected, and RTX employees are strictly prohibited from ever making a deliberately false or misleading entry in our books and records, no matter how small or immaterial. RTX maintains a robust monitoring program to ensure that all of our businesses are upholding these nonnegotiable requirements.

Third-Party Intermediaries

Our third-party intermediaries are subject to similar rules and will be selected after a robust due diligence process aimed at confirming their good business practices. Once on board, they will be trained and monitored. Intermediaries engaged in advocacy and sales on our behalf have limited-term contracts, which cannot be renewed without a refreshed assessment.

Support of Industry Best Practices

RTX has a demonstrated commitment to various global anti-corruption initiatives, including the Global Principles of Business Ethics for the Aerospace and Defense Industry, the International Forum on Business Ethical Conduct (IFBEC) and the Defense Industry Initiative (DII). These initiatives and industry organizations focus on sharing best practices and enhancing ethics and business conduct among defense and aerospace companies.


Every RTX employee receives annual ethics and compliance training. Anti-corruption compliance is shared through written communication, video-based training, live training, and targeted online and in-person training for high-risk personnel with messages encouraging employees to identify issues, ask questions and raise concerns without the fear of retaliation, emphasizing the importance of training, and providing guidance on areas of particular concern to help all employees understand key anti-corruption responsibilities and their personal role in guaranteeing compliance with anti-corruption laws.


RTX regularly assesses and reviews the implementation and sustainment of its anti-corruption controls and continually reviews and assesses our anti-corruption policies, training and practices.

Reporting and Investigations

In conducting investigations, RTX is objective, thorough and balanced. In managing risk, RTX is conservative and data-driven. We communicate lessons learned from investigations and apply robust processes and practices for continuous improvement and risk reduction.
