We respect the privacy of our employees, and their right to pursue outside activities and interests. A conflict of interest can arise, however, when employees have a personal interest in a transaction or situation that could affect their business judgment, loyalty to Albemarle or work performance. When potential conflicts of interest arise, we take appropriate steps to manage the risks arising from them.
- We make business decisions in the best interests of Albemarle, without bias or favoritism.
- We avoid situations where personal activities, interests or relationships could affect, or be perceived to affect, our decision-making or work performance.
- We do not engage in outside interests that compete with Albemarle.
- We proactively disclose any potential conflict of interest, even if we think it will have no influence on our judgment or performance.
