For Pemex and its subsidiaries, it is essential that suppliers, contractors, partners and customers share these integrity guidelines and our values and ethical principles, which is the reason we have established guidelines for the relationship through our Code of Ethics for third parties. Likewise, we apply Due Diligence in this area, in addition to developing actions that promote principles similar to the ones we have established, in order to create ethical chains, such as filling out the Declaration of Connections to Private Parties and Statements of previous employment, position or commission in Petróleos Mexicanos, its Subsidiary Productive Companies and, where appropriate, its affiliates (Spanish), in order to prevent the risk of conflicts of interest in our business relationships.

Reinforcing our transparency, accountability, and the fight against corruption are fundamental aspects. This encourages us to permanently update and implement mechanisms throughout the organization to prevent any practice contrary to our values and ethical principles; any misconduct can be reported through our ethics hotline and may lead to disciplinary measures.

All our contracts include an anti-corruption, auditability and transparency clause.
