  • Abide by the law and regulations of the law of the host country by appreciating labor practices.
  • Abide by prevailing international standards on occupational safety and health.
  • Employ as many as possible residents of the host country and, if doable, as many as native people of the operating or exploration site.
  • Provide training for residents of the host country with a primary focus on the native communities of the operating and exploration sites to prepare them for work in the operation.
  • Promote employees based on their motivation and capacity for performing their work regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, tribe, color, language, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, or tribal affiliation. Nevertheless, special measures will be taken to train and employ native communities in each operating and exploration site.
