Purpose, culture and values
Our purpose, culture and values describe what we set out to achieve as a business, who we are as a team and the behaviour and standards that we expect of ourselves and our colleagues.
Our Code of Conduct is designed to outline our values and promote them, both at the corporate level and across our business operations. Our Code has been developed in order to demonstrate what is expected of our employees, suppliers, and stakeholders and to guide them on how to promote the strong principles of our business.
Our purpose is to produce base metals profitably in a safe and sustainable environment for all our stakeholders.
We promote low cost, sustainable and ethical metal production to benefit our workforce, local communities, host governments and shareholders. We enrich communities close to our operations with employment opportunities and education, sports facilities, medical care and help for underprivileged members of society. Focus on environmental responsibilities remains key to our business strategy.
The metals we produce are essential for modern living and a technologically advancing future. They play a key role in transmitting power and transporting people in order to foster economic growth and development.
Since inception of the Company, our culture has been to operate in an open and transparent manner and develop a long-term and sustainable business. CAML as a business has been built embracing technology and continues to operate with an enterprising spirit.
Our values inform the behaviour and standards expected of all our colleagues in the business regardless of location or role of that individual. Our employees are the essence of the Company and their conduct affects our work ethic, the decisions we make and our performance.
We encourage our people to take ownership of their work, lead by example, and set achievable goals. Through this we facilitate improvement in our processes and practices enabling us to meet the targets we set ourselves. Accountability for us means defining our responsibilities and fulfilling our commitments to our partners, employees, and stakeholders. This means delivering on our objectives and goals efficiently in respect of time and cost.
Health and Safety
The safety of our employees is a core value and we are passionate about protecting the health and wellbeing of our people. We work hard to monitor, assess and mitigate all the risks that could potentially cause harm to our employees. We strive to ensure that every individual within the Company understands that safety is their responsibility.
Taking responsibility for sustainable development is our core objective and its importance is considered in each decision that we make. We aim to positively affect our employees and local communities, while minimising any adverse impacts on the natural environment.
Efficiency and innovation
We encourage our team to embrace change and commit to continuing to bring technology and innovation together to improve our operations. This approach helps us to use our resources wisely and efficiently in achieving long-term sustainable production.
Respect and trust
We encourage open and constructive communications with team members and value collaborative working. We accomplish transparency through honest, fair, and open communication with all key stakeholders built on disclosure, clarity, and accuracy. We are open to recognising our faults and improving practices.
