Salamander Energy operates in accordance with the following principles:
- We aim to treat all our stakeholders fairly and with integrity
- We will not tolerate any form of bribery and corruption within our business activities or within business activities of those who perform services on our behalf
- We will comply with applicable laws and regulations (in particular the UK Bribery Act) and apply recognised international standards where laws and regulations are not in place
During 2012, employees received briefings and training on the Code of Business Conduct and expected standards of behaviour, encompassing compliance with the Bribery Act. All employees have undertaken a bespoke online training programme to deal with fraud and corruption risks and received face-to-face briefings as required in each office. The training and briefings will be repeated in 2013 and will continue to be repeated annually as part of an on-going Group compliance programme. In addition, towards the end of the year an annual ABC risk assessment was undertaken throughout the business.
