In our Good Citizenship Business Principles, we commit to the highest levels of ethical conduct and transparency.

At Anglo American we are implacably opposed to corruption. We are committed to contributing to the long-term sustainability and the good governance of the countries where we operate.

We will not allow our employees, or those acting on our behalf, to offer, solicit, pay or accept bribes. Supporting this commitment, we have adopted our Group wide Business Integrity Policy.

We will not condone anti-competitive practices and we will not tolerate any such activity by our employees.

We prohibit employees from trading securities when in possession of unpublished, price sensitive information.

We will maintain high standards of business assurance in order to identify and monitor material risks, safeguard our assets and prevent or detect fraud and corruption.

Our principles apply to every business that we manage and sets out the standards of conduct required at every level within Anglo American. It applies too everything we do and to every part of the world where we operate. We will promote the application of our principles by those with whom we do business. Their willingness to accept them will be an important factor in our decisions to enter into, and remain in, such relationships.

We expect employees to take personal responsibility for ensuring that our conduct complies with these principles and we encourage all stakeholders to raise concerns about potential breaches or any legal or ethical issues. We provide and promote a Speak Up facility for all employees, business partners and other stakeholders to raise concerns about potentially unethical, unlawful or unsafe conduct or practices involving the Group.
