Operating Ethically

Case Study
Rolling out Anti-Corruption Training
In 2015, Sherritt updated its Anti-Corruption Policy and by the end of the year, 54% of our total eligible workforce received anti-corruption training.
As a public company, our overarching responsibility is to operate profitably and take advantage of opportunities to grow our business. This allows us to keep our commitments to our shareholders, employees, contractors, host country governments and communities. Making a profit, however, is not done at any cost. To ensure that we protect our business and reputation, we commit to conducting all activities with integrity and the highest standards of responsible conduct. This includes avoiding actual and perceived conflicts of interest, having zero tolerance for corruption of any form, and respecting the rights of all people with whom we interact. We do this by rigorously implementing our Business Ethics Code, Anti-Corruption Policy and Human Rights Policy, and by ensuring that we have the systems and programs in place to bring effect to our expectations.
In 2015, we:
  • Completed anti-corruption training for 54% of our eligible workforce around the world
  • Did not receive any human rights–related grievances across Sherritt
  • Recorded, managed and closed seven reportable concerns from employees
  • Received the Syncrude Award for Excellence in Sustainable Development
  • Received the Green Star Award in the category of Prevention and Preparedness
