Albemarle is committed to achieving the highest standards of legal, honest and ethical conduct.

Training on the content and application of the Code is mandatory for all employees. We take seriously and investigate all potential legal or Code violations.

Noncompliance by such suppliers or vendors may result in termination of such business relationships.
