Our ethical principles set the guidance for all that we do. As we seek to achieve responsible commercial success, we will be challenged to balance these principles against one other, always mindful of our promise to stakeholders that we will achieve responsible commercial success.
Our ethical principles encompass the following:
- INTEGRITY: We will live up to our ethical principles, even when faced with business, individual and social risks, as well as economic forces.
- HONESTY: We will not say things that are untrue. We will never purposely mislead. We will be as honest as possible, candidly and unreservedly share information, as appropriate to the relationship.
- COMPASSION: We will preserve an awareness of the needs of others and act to meet those needs whenever possible. Whenever possible we will minimize harm. We will act in ways that are consistent with our obligation to social responsibility.
- RESPECT FOR OTHERS: We will be open and candid in our communication, and amenable to influence. We will respect and value the abilities and contributions of others, embracing the responsibility and accountability for our actions in this respect.
