American Tower is committed to doing business the right way in order to manage risk, both legal and reputational, and ensure we are viewed as a partner of choice for our tenants and the communities where we operate. Our commitment to operating in an ethical manner is visible throughout our day-to-day work and is clearly manifested in our training regimen and communications from our senior leadership.

Our Code of Conduct establishes behavioral expectations and disciplinary protocols that apply to members of senior management, the Board and all other employees throughout the organization. Each year, our Code of Conduct must be certified by all our employees and Board members. In addition, the Code of Conduct, supported by our Vendor Code of Conduct, applies to our customers, vendors and suppliers when we are partnering on projects.

Vendor relations teams in each of our markets have processes and policies in place to ensure vendors understand our ethical standards and expectations. In addition, in connection with our Sanctions Compliance Policy, the legal teams throughout the markets review all customers, vendors and service providers of American Tower through managed software to confirm there are no Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Bureau of Industry and Standards (BIS) or other sanctions applicable to such third parties.

In cases of potential misconduct, individuals are encouraged to contact our Ethics Committee at or Human Resources department directly. In addition, employees and other stakeholders can report a violation through our anonymous, confidential, third-party hotline.
