Colgate-Palmolive (Pakistan) Limited (“Colgate-Palmolive”) people live our values everyday by promoting ethical behavior through their actions. This commitment to ethical leadership is further demonstrated when we hold ourselves and others accountable by challenging behavior that conflicts with our Code of Conduct or other policies or by simply asking for guidance when in doubt.
