Business policies

We’re committed to creating long-term value for our customers, shareholders, employees and the societies in which we operate. At the same time, we are committed to our three core principles of Safety, Integrity and Sustainability.

To achieve our ambitions in a manner consistent with our core principles, we’ve adopted clear policies that guide us with respect to essential aspects of our operations – in striving for a safe work environment, managing risk, paying our fair share of our taxes in compliance with applicable laws, managing our human resources, and providing security for our people, our processes and our businesses around the world.

Each of these business policies has been summarized in a formal statement, as listed below.


Safety is managed as a core process for managing operational risk in all our business activities and achieving our vision of zero injuries, waste and harm. This process reflects our culture of taking care of people and the environment.
