Ethics and Compliance

Ethical conduct is one of the foundations of our success. Our decisions and actions, individually and collectively, are guided by our responsibility to act with integrity and maintain the highest ethical standards.

Code of Conduct

The Mattel Code of Conduct (COC) is a key foundation of our company culture. Our COC 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.
All employees globally participate in our COC training when they join Mattel. We provide employees with ongoing training on topics and policies aligned to their job duties and require annual refresher training for all employees.


Mattel’s EthicsLine is available online and by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to report conduct that may be in violation of the COC or Company policies. Employees who call the EthicsLine can choose to remain anonymous but are encouraged to identify themselves. The EthicsLine is operated by an independent third-party provider, and translators are available for non-English speakers.
We are committed to investigating all reported concerns and dealing with each report fairly, reasonably, and discreetly, and maintain a strict non-retaliation policy protecting persons who raise a concern or question in good faith and in accordance with the COC.
