As a global energy company, we set high standards of performance and ethical behaviours. We are judged by how we act - our reputation is upheld by how we live up to our core values honesty, integrity and respect for people. The Shell General Business Principles, Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics help everyone at Shell act in line with these values and comply with all relevant legislation and regulations.
The Shell General Business Principles
Our eight Business Principles are based on our core values and promote trust, openness, teamwork, professionalism, and pride in what we do. We were one of the first global companies to state and share our beliefs when we published our General Business Principles in 1976.
The Shell Code of Conduct
How should I react if a business partner offers me a gift? What is “insider information” and how must I deal with it? Our Code of Conduct provides practical advice to our staff on how to comply with laws and regulations, how to work with others and how to resolve questions on business conduct.
