At Kodak, we conduct ourselves according to six corporate values.
These values define who we are, and how we act toward each other,
our customers, our shareholders, and all of our publics. It is
important that everyone understand our values so we can work together
as one worldwide company as we navigate today's increasingly tough,
Respect for the Dignity of the Individual
tWe cannot operate effectively unless each of us is able to treat
everyone else with appropriate respect. This essential value is
at the heart of our culture and will help us focus on many important

other. We must depend upon and trust our colleagues to do their
assigned tasks without the need to check and recheck their work.
Likewise, each of us must handle our responsibilities so that
our colleagues can trust we are doing our part.
Each of us must earn credibility with others inside and outside
the company. Certainly, the company as a whole must strive for
the highest credibility with all its external publics. We must
commit to do what we say we will do, and no later than we commit
to do it.
Continuous Improvement and Personal Renewal
Results do count, and continuous improvement toward world-class
levels is essential to achieve credibility with our publics. We
must each continually improve ourselves and renew our skill sets.
Training and education must be accepted as a common responsibility
between us as employees and the company as a whole.
Recognition and Celebration
We will search out and welcome opportunities to openly celebrate
the achievements of others and congratulate individuals, teams,
employees, suppliers and customers for delivering results that
contribute to Kodak success. Recognition and celebration will
be an integral part of our everyday work activity.
