Corporate Governance Guidelines

For more than 160 years, Corning has applied its expertise in specialty glass, ceramics, and optical physics to develop products that create new industries and transform people’s lives. Our technologies have helped make the air cleaner, accelerated the speed of information transport, and changed the way people interact with the world and each other.  Yet 164 years of experience has taught us that, to succeed long-term, we must not only innovate, we must also maintain the trust of our stakeholders. 

Our commitment to corporate governance goes beyond compliance with accounting rules, government regulations, and SEC requirements. We share information frequently and candidly through a variety of tools from news releases to social media. We meet regularly with investors to understand their concerns. We tie executive compensation strongly to financial performance. And we are governed by a Board consisting of twelve independent directors out of fourteen. Most importantly, a clear set of Corporate Values guides everything we do:  Quality, Integrity, Performance, Leadership, Innovation, Independence, and The Individual.  We live all seven, all the time, all around the world.

We recently implemented several changes to our governance based on feedback from shareholders, and we will keep the dialogue going in our quest for continuous improvement.

We are committed to earning your confidence with our performance, and your trust with our actions.

Wendell P. Weeks
Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President
