Dragon Oil demands and maintains the highest ethical standards in carrying out its business activities. This is necessary because Dragon Oil’s image is reflected by the people who work for the Dragon Oil Group of companies (the “Group”). Dragon Oil can only build and grow on solid foundations of integrity and strong ethics.
This Code describes the principles of Dragon Oil’s business ethics and is intended to assist all employees in meeting high standards of personal and professional integrity required of them. The Code applies to everyone who works for or with Dragon Oil, whether as employee, director, consultant, officer, contractor (and their subcontractors) or any other business partner.
Our ethics policy is straightforward: everyone working for or with Dragon Oil must uphold the highest standards of business integrity and ethics in the conduct of all Company activity, complying with both the spirit and letter of all applicable laws and regulations. Dragon Oil’s employees are expected to avoid any action or behaviour which could create even the perception that such behaviour is unethical, illegal or otherwise improper.
Irrespective of an employee’s position within Dragon Oil, he or she is involved in the business process including decision-making that affects Dragon Oil and other employees. It can sometimes be difficult to discern if a certain course of action will result in contravention of the provision of the Code. Also, certain situations may arise which may not be covered in our Code of Conduct. If there is any doubt as to whether a certain action is in compliance with the Code or any other Dragon Oil policy, it is expected that an employee will err on the side of caution and discuss the issue with his or her manager. If you have any questions concerning the legality of an action or the meaning of the Code, you should contact Dragon Oil’s Legal Department.
I am certain that as a team we will uphold the highest ethical standards.
