Ethical and Socially Responsive Business

At Chipotle we are committed to the highest standards of ethical and social responsible business practices. To ensure that all of our activities reflect these standards on a daily basis, we have created a Code of Conduct that is to be followed by all of our employees. To help us ensure that we provide the best customer experience and to make sure employees all across the business comply with our company policies and the law. At Chipotle, we have an “open door” policy that allows our employees report any activities or concerns about possible breaches or violations of our company policies.

This agreement helps protect the company from intentional or inadvertent disclosure of information that could seriously damage the company.

To ensure these policies are understood and followed, all of our employees receive a copy of the Code of Conduct during their new employee orientation. Employees are required to read and sign an acknowledgment form along with information about expectations of being a Chipotle employee, and policies in place that help them protect our company and their job. We have also created Chipotle Confidential, a hotline and website that allows our employees report com-plaints, concerns, and suspicion of violations to our Code of Conduct. This service is
