To millions of Americans, the words “Koch brothers” and “political activism” go hand-in-hand. And for good reason.
At Koch Industries, we are unapologetic advocates for the principles of a free and open society. These include integrity, responsibility, innovation, respect, tolerance, humility, equality before the law, free speech and exchange, and mutual benefit. We apply these principles across Koch companies every day. We believe they have been critical to our success.
Sadly, decades of misguided policies have eroded these basic values, creating a two-tiered society that gives unfair advantages to the financially privileged and politically connected few. America today is failing our most vulnerable and holding people back from reaching their extraordinary potential.
The way we see it, a free and open society is one that provides opportunity for everyone. That’s why we continuously strive to advance these fundamental principles.
