The Shell General Business Principles state our insistence on honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of our business. The direct or indirect offer, payment, soliciting or acceptance of bribes is unacceptable.
UN Global Compact Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
We set up a global helpline and website in 2005 for staff and business partners to confidentially report concerns and get advice on any suspected infringements of the law or of our Code of Conduct or Business Principles.
We report cases of bribery and fraud to the Audit Committee of the Board of Royal Dutch Shell plc. We review our relationship with any partner found to be taking bribes or committing fraud. Following reports of violations of our Code of Conduct in 2013 we ended our relationship with 63 staff and contractors.
