Business Ethics

We conduct our business in an honest and ethical manner. We expect our employees to deal with everyone in a fair and open manner and to conform to the spirit and intent, as well as the technical requirements, of all contracts and agreements that we enter into, and with all laws, regulations and rules that govern us.

Demonstrating ethical behaviour and compliance with applicable regulations is core to our company and essential to sustainable operations. We recognize that transparency in meeting our business ethics obligations is critical for earning trust and maintaining our social licence to operate. As part of our approach to ethical business practices and public policy, we focus on being a collaborative, solutions-based partner with governments in the jurisdictions where we work.

We engage in and support the work being done to fight corruption by supporting international frameworks such as the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). Our Code of Ethics requires that we conduct global business in a moral and ethical manner, and that employees comply with all applicable laws. Under our anti-corruption compliance policy, payments, charitable donations, travel expenses, gifts and entertainment may not be made to government officials to assist us in obtaining or retaining business, nor can employees provide payments, gifts or entertainment that are prohibited by applicable country or local laws.
