Business Policies

Making it clear where we stand

We’re committed to creating long-term value for our customers, shareholders, employees and the societies in which we operate. We don’t take this promise lightly. That’s why we’ve put it in writing.

The following statements have been approved by the board to formalize the policies which give effect to our core principles of safety, sustainability and integrity.


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.

Risk management

Managing risk is all about identifying, understanding, assessing and dealing with risk effectively. Done properly, we believe it can bring opportunities and help us achieve our objectives.

Tax principles

We believe that a coherent and responsible position on tax is an essential element of our sustainability strategies. In that context, we have adopted the following tax principles.

Human resources

Our people are central to everything we do. We’re committed to making the most of their skills and talents through ongoing training and development.


We take security very seriously. That’s why we have risk-based security management systems to protect our people, processes and businesses around the world.
