A speak-up culture is one in which stakeholders feel confident they may raise a perceived or actual concern related to our business and that it will be handled with respect, discretion and confidentiality, with no threat of reprisal or retaliation. Fear of retaliation — which can include everything from termination or demotion to gossip and exclusion from team activities — is one of the biggest potential hurdles that may prevent workers from raising concerns.
CNOOC International has zero tolerance for retaliation or negative action against someone who raises a concern in good faith. This is expressly stated in the Speaking Up Standard.
Providing employees and external stakeholders with a safe environment to raise concerns is an important element of an ethical culture. At CNOOC International, there are several ways to report a concern:
Attention: Integrity & Compliance
You can also report a concern using our integrity helpline, which is a secure reporting system operated by Navex Global, an independent third-party service provider. The helpline allows you to anonymously report a concern if you want to protect your identity.
