Integrity is everyone’s business

Maintaining a reputation for integrity depends on the actions of all our people. We want to become a benchmark in the industry for how to do business the right way.

We’ve come a long way and learned a lot on our journey to ethics and compliance excellence. We recognize that it’s not enough to simply comply with laws, rules and regulations. It’s also not enough to set up a framework for good governance practices. To meet the benchmark we set for ourselves, it’s essential that integrity is woven into the very fabric of our organization.

Whether demonstrated in our annual employee certification program or our core values, safety, integrity, collaboration and innovation, we’re committed to ethics and compliance excellence in everything we do. Our goal is to set a higher standard and go beyond typical compliance levels.

Our Integrity Program components adhere to ethics and compliance principles from international bodies such as Transparency International, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Global Compact, World Bank, African Development Bank, and follow the United States Department of Justice FCPA Guidance.
