Our Values reflect our purpose, our priorities and the beliefs by which we conduct ourselves. They define what it means to work at Glencore, regardless of location or role. They are the fundamental basis of our sustainability management system, GCP (Glencore Corporate Practice), along with our Code of Conduct and our Group policies.
Glencore’s fundamental values
Our first priority in the workplace is to protect the health and well-being of all our people. We take a proactive approach to health and safety; our goal is continuous improvement in the prevention of occupational disease and injuries.
Our approach fosters the highest level of professionalism, personal ownership and entrepreneurial spirit in all our people while never compromising on their safety and well-being. This is important to our success and the superior returns we aim to achieve for all our stakeholders.
We aim to achieve our key deliverables efficiently as a path to industry-leading returns, while maintaining a clear focus on excellence, quality, sustainability and continuous improvement in everything we do.
We recognise that our work can have an impact on our society and the environment. We care profoundly about our performance in relation to environmental protection, human rights and health and safety.
We value open relationships and communication based on integrity, co-operation, transparency and mutual benefit, with our people, our customers, our suppliers, governments and society in general.
Translating values into action
Our values are the basis for our Code of Conduct, with which every individual working for Glencore must comply, regardless of role or location. We derive our separate Group and operational policies from these two fundamental documents. The Code and our main Group policies are available to download.
