At Endeavour, our most important shared values are honesty, integrity, and accountability. We do what we say we are going to do, and we strive to ensure our policies and practices extend beyond the requirements of laws and regulations.
Values and Business Ethics
Ethical conduct is a fundamental value at Endeavour. We have adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to promote honest and ethical conduct, full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure, and compliance with applicable governmental rules and regulations. The Code was last revised and updated in 2013 and is available here.
Our Whistleblower Policy provides a mechanism for open communication and the anonymous reporting, without fear of reprisal, of any unethical or illegal activity or behavior which violates the company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. Details are outlined in the company’s Whistleblower Policy, available here.
Conflicts of Interest
Embedded within our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics are definitions and expectations relating to the avoidance of conflicts of interest. Employees, officers and directors are expected to avoid all situations where personal interests or activities interfere or appear to interfere with the interests of the company.
We have a policy reflecting the company’s commitment to making timely and accurate disclosure of all material information and providing fair and equal access to material information. Our Disclosure Policy can be found here.
Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery
Starting in 2014, this policy will be included in induction training of all new employees. Examples of situations that may constitute bribery and corruption are included in the policy which is located here.
We value human rights; the respect for and protection of which are embedded in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. We foster a work environment free from discrimination, and do not tolerate derogatory comments or actions based on racial or ethnic characteristics, personal harassment, or sexual harassment.
