Ethics and Business Conduct

Syncrude’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct policies are designed to foster the high level of ethical conduct expected by our many internal and external stakeholders.

All employees are formally trained in these matters and they participate in regular refreshers.  All employees must sign a certification stating they understand the policies – Administrative, Professional and Technical employees certify annually based on their increased exposure to potential situations, while Occupational employees certify every four years.  All employees receive an annual letter from the CEO as a reminder of these policies.

In addition to internal processes, Syncrude has a third-party system for the reporting of concerns about corporate conduct. Employees, contractors and members of the public may file their concerns anonymously and confidentially through EthicsPoint, at or 1-888-493-1866.
