Political Activity and Lobbying
We support a fair political process, advocate for our business policies and encourage our employees to be actively engaged.
We believe that active participation in a fair political process promotes a healthy society. As a company, we engage policymakers on issues and concerns that are important to our business and our customers. We encourage employees to be politically engaged locally. Clarios generally limits the use of company resources to support political candidates.
We participate responsibly in the political process by:
QUESTION: I’m volunteering for a local politician running for office. I was asked to create a banner for an upcoming campaign event, and need to find a large work space to complete it. I would like to use the conference room in the office for this. I would only use my own materials and only work on the banner after completing my day’s work for Clarios. I would also make sure that no one else needs the room for company business. Is this allowed?
ANSWER: Clarios respects everyone’s right to be involved in the political process. We are proud of our employees who volunteer their time and money to support their political beliefs and preferred candidates. However, Clarios does not permit the use of company resources, including office space, to support a given candidate. We must avoid the perception of promoting specific politicians or political parties. Therefore, the use of the conference room would not be allowed.
