Glencore is committed to advancing everyday life by supplying the commodities needed to develop, sustain and improve the world around us.

It’s why we come to work and it’s what we do. We want to bring about long-term growth and opportunity for all our stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, employees, and the communities and countries in which we operate.

Through the scale and diversity of our industrial and marketing businesses, we responsibly supply the commodities that are fundamental to the building blocks of life. Be that to build essential infrastructure, from homes and hospitals, to roads and rail networks; to produce the batteries that are transforming modern technology and mobility; or to ensure access to affordable energy for all.

By partnering with communities and governments we are able to bring progress to many. This is our Purpose. When we fulfil it, we advance everyday life.

Our Values

Our Values reflect our Purpose and define what it means to work at Glencore. They are at the heart of our culture and the way we do business.

We never compromise on safety. We look out for one another and stop work if it’s not safe.

We have the courage to do what’s right, even when it’s hard. We do what we say and treat each other fairly and with respect.

We take responsibility for our actions. We talk and listen to others to understand what they expect from us. We work to improve our commercial, social and environmental performance.

We’re honest and straightforward when we communicate. We push ourselves to improve by sharing information and encouraging dialogue and feedback.

We work efficiently and focus on what’s important. We avoid unnecessary complexity and look for simple, pragmatic solutions.

We encourage new ideas and quickly adapt to change. We're always looking for new opportunities to create value and find better and safer ways of working.
