Business principles

Shareholder value

Shareholder value is fundamental to realising Discover Exploration’s business goals and to operating sustainably in the long term. It results in the necessary financial resources to develop the projects in which Discover has invested. Without shareholder value and a strong financial position, Discover would not be able to fulfil its commitment towards its other business principles.

Discover’s investment decisions are screened carefully against all 4 business principles: shareholder value; business integrity and compliance; health safety and environment; and local communities.

Business integrity and compliance

Discover is committed to conducting its business activities with integrity, honesty and fairness.

Discover complies with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries in which it operates, with particular attention to the UK Bribery Act 2010 and the US FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended by the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act amendments of 1988 and 1998).

All employees of Discover and its affiliates are required to comply with its anti bribery, corruption and sanctions policy.

Throughout its business activities, Discover demands its partners to comply with similar high standards of business integrity and compliance.

Health, safety and environment

Discover endeavours to maintain the highest standards in health, safety and environment throughout its business activities. Discover strives to minimize the impact of its operations on the environment. Discover will not compromise on health and safety.

Local communities

Discover is committed to being a good neighbour by enhancing the general wellbeing of the communities within which Discover and its partners work.

Discover manages the impact of its business activities on the local communities meticulously. It works to improve the benefits to these local communities, and to mitigate any negative impacts from its operations.
