Ethics & Compliance

We are committed to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and ethical behavior in all we do.

Integrity is one of Austin’s Core Values, and as a result, is central to everything we do: among the employee-owners we work with, on the projects we build together, and in the communities we serve. It is comprised of four primary characteristics: honesty, reliability, fairness, and accountability. These guide each business transaction Austin engages in, and drives to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.

Our employee-owners are guided by Austin’s Code of Conduct, which outlines the ethical principles that shape our daily interactions and set expectations our employee-owners must actively commit to follow when conducting business. We seek customers and business partners who share our ethical approach.
