GOVERNANCE

The health and safety of all our people is our top priority. We treat them fairly, uphold their rights and reward them competitively, in line with their contribution to our success.

We believe all fatalities and injuries are preventable and that safe workplaces result from a strong safety commitment on the part of both management and workforce. We continually work to improve our safety performance across our business.

Our governance framework includes our Values, Code of Conduct and other policies and guidelines. Our sustainability framework represents our commitment to uphold good business practices and to meet or exceed applicable laws and external requirements.

 

We will not knowingly assist any third party in breaching the law, or participate in any criminal, fraudulent or corrupt practice in any country.  Our managers and supervisors are responsible for ensuring that employees understand and comply with the policies.
