Eastman Kodak's (EK) Mission Statement

At Kodak, we believe that by doing well by shareholders also means doing right by customers, employees, neighbors, and suppliers. With that in mind, Kodak operates its facilities, and designs and markets its products and services , not only to increase shareholder value, but also to promote development of the individual, the well being of the community, and respect for the environment.

Kodak Values & Mission

All of us at Kodak work from a set of core values, and we're proud to say that our resulting personal conduct allows for an environment that is free from inappropriate pressures and diversions.

We show respect for the dignity of the individual. And in the process, we value and champion our human differences. This helps us maintain the diversity of our workforce.

We uphold uncompromising integrity. We demonstrate honest, ethical behavior in all transactions, placing the success of our business and its people ahead of any personal gain.

We give and receive unquestionable trust. We work in an environment in which we can trust one another and share information freely, thereby doing our jobs to the very best of our abilities.

We prove and maintain constant credibility. By consistently delivering on our commitments (and even admitting to the occasional mistake), we earn the credibility of those around us.

We support continual improvement and personal renewal. Varied opportunities for individual learning and growth allow us to achieve the world-class expectations of our publics.

We recognize and celebrate achievement. We welcome opportunities to openly celebrate individual and team achievements, and congratulate those contributing to Kodak's success.

With the above mentioned values in mind, we plan to grow more rapidly than our competitors by providing customers with the solutions they need to capture, store, process, output and communicate images—anywhere, anytime. We will derive our competitive advantage by delivering differentiated, cost-effective solutions—including consumables, hardware, software, systems and services—quickly and with flawless quality. All this is thanks to our diverse team of energetic, results-oriented employees with the world-class talent and skills necessary to sustain Kodak as the world leader in imaging.
