Code of Conduct

Our governance practices promote ethical business conduct

FirstPrinciples, our comprehensive code of business conduct and ethics, guides our ethical decision-making and conduct of our directors, officers and employees.

The board, through its Audit and Conduct Review Committee, reviews the operation of FirstPrinciples. Each year, every director, officer and employee must sign an acknowledgement that they have read, understood and complied with FirstPrinciples. We also have an online FirstPrinciples course for all new and existing employees that reviews and tests for understanding of FirstPrinciples.
