At Eastman, we believe that it is important for our business, stockholders, employees, customers, and communities that we engage and actively participate in the political process. Decisions made at the federal, state, and local levels impact our business and the lives of those around us, and we believe our advocacy efforts are an effective and constructive means of working with regulators, legislators, and other relevant parties to strengthen and protect our business and communities. This policy sets forth basic principles concerning Eastman’s political contributions, political action committees, lobbying activities, and trade association participation.
In addition, Eastman employees and retirees in the U. S. are active in the policymaking and political process, contacting their legislators through grassroots campaigns. Eligible employees and Eastman directors may contribute to The Eastman Chemical Company Political Action Committee (EastmanPAC), which supports candidates for federal and state offices in the U.S.
Eastman is committed to conducting all our involvement in the political process with the highest standard of ethical conduct, pursuant to our
Code of Business Conduct.
