Our code

Global Code of Business Conduct

The Global Code of Business Conduct, referred to as our Code, declares who we are and what we stand for. It underscores our commitment to doing business not only legally but also ethically. This Code provides the framework for the decisions we make and the actions we take every day, around the globe. It's also a practical tool to help us understand what is expected of us, how we live Our Values and when we should seek help. We can't possibly anticipate all the scenarios and questions you might have as you live into Allstate's Values, so we encourage you to ask questions.

Our Code applies to all employees, leaders, officers, internal and external directors of Allstate. It's up to each and every one of us to use and follow it at all times. It contains references to relevant policies that should be adhered to. It also provides guidance on how we can help our customers, shareholders, communities and people prosper without compromising Our Values. This commitment to doing the right thing strengthens our business by making us more reliable, resilient and responsive to those we serve.

Adoption and disclosure of the Code

The Code provides ethical guidelines for conducting business on behalf of the Allstate family of companies. It applies to every employee and officer, as well as outside directors, of the Allstate family of companies. This Code was adopted by the Audit Committee of the board of directors of The Allstate Corporation. The Audit Committee is responsible for periodic review and assessment and approval of changes to the Code.

The Code cannot address every issue that may be encountered, so we must be familiar with its principles and use it to guide our judgment and inform our actions.


We recognize that in exceptional cases, a strict application of the Code may result in serious hardship. In these rare circumstances, except for employees of Allstate Canada Group, a waiver of the Code to mitigate hardship may be sought. Any waiver of the Code for the CEO, CFO, Controller or other senior financial or executive officers, or outside directors, must be approved by the Audit Committee. For all other employees, any waiver must be approved according to procedures adopted by the Audit Committee.
