Ethics, Culture & Integrity
We aspire to demonstrate a well established ethical culture through our actions and behaviours. Our values are the cornerstone of our Ethics and Culture programme.
Embedding best practices
Our Code of Conduct, founded upon our values, is a set of rules and principles that guide our behaviours and actions, including guidance on complying with the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the Mexican General Law of the National Anti-Corruption System. Workshops and master classes are conducted regularly to embed ethics and integrity in the culture, in combination with an online training programme and evaluation to effectively reach employees. Training our people to make better decisions has been a crucial element of our anti-bribery and anti-corruption strategy; the scope of our online training programme and evaluation has broadened to cover money laudering and fraud and been recognised internally as a success for its innovative approach. We recognise that embedding ethics in the culture as a core competence in the organisational structure support our strategic and operating goals.
PwC have guided the design of our masterclasses and employee workshops, and rolled out training for our managers, 20 of whom were selected to become trainers in the employee workshops.
The workshops reinforce how to apply Fresnillo policies and where to go for additional support, with an emphasis on using the behavioural compass for decision-making. Managerial workshops went further to stress the practical requirements of their role as leaders in enabling and supporting business ethics and integrity.
Step-Up Culture Framework
Our behaviours and actions should always reflect our well-established ethical culture. We have identified the winning behaviours of a step-up culture and a strategy to embed ethics throughout Fresnillo.
