An integral part of our corporate philosophy is our commitment to the highest standards of ethical business conduct. The Group makes stringent efforts to uphold our reputation as a transparent, fair and responsible business. In order to achieve this aim, the Group adopts an attitude of zero tolerance towards all forms of corruption and bribery and takes a systematic approach to preventing and responding to misconduct.

The Group places a strong emphasis on ensuring full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Russian Law on Preventing Corruption, the UK Bribery Act and the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. EVRAZ has also elaborated a comprehensive set of internal documents that set forth the norms of ethical and fair business conduct that the Group’s employees are expected to uphold. The key documents regulating these matters are:

The Code of Conduct

The Health, Safety and Environment Policy

The Social Investment Guidelines and the Sponsorship and Charity Policy

The Anti-Corruption Policy

The Group expects all our employees and subsidiaries to faithfully comply with the provisions of these documents at all times.
