Ethics & Compliance

Ethical behavior is one of the foundations of our success. While we take great pride in our business results, we know how we achieve those results is important. Our decisions, individually and collectively, are guided by our responsibility to act with integrity and maintain the highest ethical standards.

Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct is the cornerstone of our commitment to ethics and integrity. It embodies our values, reflects our culture, and guides our relationships with each other and our business partners. Every Mattel employee is responsible for acting with integrity, treating others with dignity and respect, being honest and fair in all transactions, and consistently striving to do the right thing.


Every employee has a responsibility to speak up to help Mattel uphold its values. Our independently operated EthicsLine provides employees a channel to report potential violations of the Code of Conduct, Company Policies or laws and regulations, and even provides an option to report anonymously. Employees may also bring ethical questions or concerns to their manager, Human Resources, the Law Department, and others.
