Code of Conduct for Suppliers and Business Partners

TelevisaUnivision is committed to conducting business with integrity, doing what’s right, and complying with the law everywhere we operate. This Code of Conduct for Suppliers and Business Partners (“Code”) documents the principles, guidelines, and expectations for establishing and maintaining a business relationship with us.


The Code applies to any employee, agent, or other representative of a company, corporation or other entity that provides any goods or services on behalf of, at the request of, or in connection with work completed for TelevisaUnivision (“you”). By performing work for and on our behalf, you acknowledge that you will conduct yourself in accordance with this Code and its requirements. You are also responsible for ensuring that any subcontractors that you employ to supply goods or services to TelevisaUnivision comply with this Code.

Where this Code sets higher standards than what the law requires, we expect you to adhere to our standards. It supplements, but does not supersede, your contract with us. To the extent there is any inconsistency between this Code and any provision of your contract with us, the contractual provision will control.

Promoting and Monitoring Compliance

We expect you to establish processes, policies, and procedures designed to promote and monitor compliance with applicable laws and regulations, as well as the expectations set forth in this Code. You must take appropriate steps to ensure that the principles in this Code are communicated to your workers and throughout your own supply chain. We may ask to periodically acknowledge that you have reviewed and understand this Code and are willing to comply with its standards.

Compliance with this Code is subject to an audit at the discretion of TelevisaUnivision. Failure to comply with the Code may result in discontinuance of current and/or the prevention of future
business relationships between you and TelevisaUnivision.

Principles of Business Conduct

You must be committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct when dealing with workers, their suppliers, customers, and other third parties. We expect you to always operate in full  compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to anti-corruption laws, antitrust and competition laws, anti-money laundering and anti- terrorism laws, laws prohibiting tax evasion. We expect you to follow global trade laws and avoid doing business with counterparties that are sanctioned or restricted by the United States and Mexican governments, or by any other jurisdiction where we conduct business.

Respect Human and Labor Rights. We expect you to ensure that all workers meet applicable legal minimum age requirements, and that all labor is voluntary. You must prohibit abusive, exploitative, and illegal conditions in your hiring practices and workplace, including but not limited to forced labor, modern slavery, and human trafficking. You must also respect the rights of workers to join, associate, and participate in worker organizations, such as unions, and to collectively bargain.

Treat People Fairly and with Respect. We expect you to foster an inclusive and non-discriminatory workplace. You must comply with anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws and
are prohibited from engaging in any form of harassment or discrimination based on an individual’s race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, age,
marital status, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy or maternity, medical condition, physical or mental disability, or any other trait or status that is protected by law.

Maintain a Safe and Healthy Work Environment. We expect you to implement appropriate procedures, controls, and safeguards to provide a safe, secure, and healthy working environment to your employees. To ensure a safe and healthy work environment, you must ensure that you are complying with applicable law and regulations on health and safety procedures.

Never Offer or Accept a Bribe. TelevisaUnivision has zerotolerance for corruption and bribery, and we require that you abide by all applicable anti-corruption laws and regulations.
Interactions with government officials pose special risks under anti-corruption laws, and you should therefore always approach any interaction with government officials that you have on behalf
of TelevisaUnivision with heightened caution. Corruption, extortion, embezzlement, bribery, and kickbacks in any form are strictly prohibited.

Under no circumstance should you give, pay, offer, promise to pay, or authorize the giving or payment of anything of value to any government official or TelevisaUnivision employee to improperly obtain or keep business, obtain a permit or license, secure some other improper advantage, or to improperly influence the decisions and/or actions of a government official or TelevisaUnivision employee. You must also avoid any conduct that creates even the appearance of an improper interaction with a government official or TelevisaUnivision employee, as such an interaction could compromise our reputation and values. You also may not use a third party to engage in conduct that would otherwise be prohibited by this Code.

Maintain Financial Integrity. We expect our Suppliers and Business Partners to ensure accuracy and integrity in their financial record-keeping, reporting, and public disclosures, in compliance with accounting, tax, and other applicable laws and regulations, particularly in your contractual relations with TelevisaUnivision. You should maintain books and records that accurately and completely reflect all transactions related to your business with us. You should never alter, conceal, or destroy any document to misrepresent any fact, circumstance, or transaction. We expect you to always have supporting documentation for any transaction between you and TelevisaUnivision.
