As a member of the Anglo American Group, the Scaw Metals Group applies its parent company's Good Citizenship Business Principles to all its decisions and actions. Wherever it operates in the world, Scaw Metals Group strives to adhere to consistently high standards of business integrity and ethics.
Getting the balance right
The company believes it is possible and desirable to provide strong investor returns to shareholders and deliver long-term, sustainable benefits to the communities where it operates. Honouring social and environmental responsibilities as a corporate citizen goes hand-in-hand with managing a successful business.
Being a good employer
Scaw sets out to attract, develop and retain the best people – people who work to the highest standards of integrity and ethics. Safety is its first priority and one of the company's core values, and it strives to achieve zero harm to employees and contractors. The company is committed to combating unfair discrimination and to promoting opportunities for workers from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Scaw has participated in Tip-Offs Anonymous, a whistle blowing scheme to help promote business integrity and ethics, since 1999.
The company communicates its Business Principles widely and incorporates them into new contracts with suppliers, letters of appointment and induction training for new employees, and ongoing internal communication with employees.
The Business Principles are available to download in English. Multiple languages of the Business Principles can be downloaded from the Anglo American corporate website.
