Integrity Drives Our Success

Operating with Integrity

We are deeply committed to conducting business with the utmost integrity and ethics and to complying with applicable laws worldwide. How we do business matters and we expect each of our associates, suppliers, and all our business partners to share these values and live them daily.


Governance and Leadership

Please see our Corporate Governance Page for Acuity Brands Certificate of Incorporation, By-Laws, Corporate Governance Guidelines, and various other governance documents that represent the primary governing principles under which, in conjunction with adherence to the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Board of Directors and management of Acuity Brands fulfill their responsibilities to customers, employees, and shareholders. Our Governance Committee of our Board of Directors oversees our corporate environmental, social and governance strategy, policies and procedures.


Doing Business Right

Our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and related policies apply to all our associates and business partners, including our officers, agents, distributors and suppliers worldwide. We have achieved and will continue to achieve success by ensuring we conduct our business the right way. Upon joining Acuity Brands, all associates receive training on our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and related policies. In addition, all associates receive annual training on our Code and re-certify their shared commitment to doing business the right way. This includes awareness about our Ethics Helpline and encouraging their partnership in raising concerns.
