Ethics

Delta Companies’ Code of Ethics states our principles of business ethics and the minimum requirements of conduct for all of our officers, managers and employees. Zach Green, President, states, "Dedication to our Code of Conduct, Core Values, and Compliance, is the cornerstone for a culture committed to EXCELLENCE."

We believe that our employees are committed to “doing the right thing in the right way”. Each day we strive to make this part of our culture and to ensure that this approach takes precedence over short-term profits or simple convenience.

The foundation of Colas USA companies' ongoing success and development lies in preserving the trust of our customers, employees, shareholders and other third parties.
 
Our flexible, decentralized organization enables each and every one of our employees to exercise the autonomy required by our respective corporate responsibilities in accordance with the distinct characteristics  of each location. Given that autonomy, it is essential that we operate in a manner consistent with our values and in compliance with our ethical principles and the law.

To achieve that, nine basic core values guide our behavior in all aspects of our business activity throughout the United States:

Core Values

Delta Companies is guided by a set of core values: INTEGRITY, ACCOUNTABILITY, TEAMWORK, RESPECT, TRUST, SAFETY, ENTREPRENUERSHIP, TRANSPARENCY, and LEADERSHIP. These values reflect who we are and what we do. They guide and inspire our work every day.

INTEGRITY
Our business conduct will include the highest level of honesty, ethics, and moral correctness. We will not compromise employees, customers or our company. 

ACCOUNTABILITY
Each individual is fully accountable for his or her decisions and actions.

TEAMWORK
Our culture of teamwork allows us to work together within the Company, and with our customers to deliver better solutions and collectively accomplish our goals. 

RESPECT
Respect is the basic rule of behavior that guides every employee in all of his or her actions: respect for oneself and respect for other employees, customers, third parties, the trade unions, society at large, the Group's principles, laws, and regulations, the environment, fairness and ethics in the broadest sense.

TRUST
Relations within the Group are based on trust, which is the cornerstone of autonomy, frankness and authenticity. It is for each person to establish and develop his or her trustworthiness and for each person to extend trust to others.

SAFETY
The safety of our employees and the traveling public is everyone's responsibility. Plan safety into every aspect of our work and do not deviate from that plan. Strive for zero accidents.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Each employee should show initiative and be motivated by a desire to win, to commit and to succeed.

TRANSPARENCY
Our actions must match our works. Each day we must strive to earn our reputation rather than simply manage it. To that end, we must operate in a manner in which our integrity and values cannot be questioned - that is, we must be authentic.

LEADERSHIP
Each day, every employee is expected to give the best of themselves, to strive constantly for quality and to demonstrate the highest level of professionalism - and to lead by example.
