Code of Conduct

Our potential is powered by our passion to innovate, dedication to serve our customers and willingness to collaborate with each other. It’s also driven by the trust we have built with our customers, neighbors, communities, suppliers, and investors. These qualities have contributed to a reputation that has taken years to build.

To protect and further enhance this reputation, our work is guided by our core values of Care, Collaboration, Courage, Curiosity, Humility, Integrity and Transparency.

In August 2019, we launched our new Code of Conduct, which provides an overview of our expectations and standards for ethical behavior and compliance, as applied in day-to-day employee activities. The Code represents our Core Values in Action.

The Code is supplemented by our interactive eCode, which is accessible to Albemarle employees on their computers and smartphones. The eCode sets out specific requirements for each type of work activity, with links to supporting policies and details of whom to speak to if they have questions. All employees are expected to Start with the Code.
