Codes of Conduct
Fortescue actively promotes ethical and responsible decision making through the development of Codes of Conduct. There are separate Codes of Conduct tailored separately for the Directors and the employees to suit their particular needs. Executives are aware that they are required to ensure that employees and contractors under their control are aware of the code.
New employees are required to read and acknowledge the requirements of the code in writing before they commence with the Company.
Through this Code, Fortescue seeks to encourage and develop a culture of
professionalism, honesty and responsibility in order to maintain and enhance our
reputation as a valued employer, business operator and corporate citizen.
In addition to Codes of Conduct, the Group operates a Whistleblower Policy and hotline and all matters reported are treated seriously and automatically referred to an appointed independent party for follow up.
