Ethics & Compliance

SNC-Lavalin is committed to doing business with the highest integrity. And maintaining a reputation of integrity depends on the actions of everyone in the organization.

We have come a long way on our journey to ethics excellence and we have learned a lot. It is not enough to simply comply with laws, rules and regulations. It is also not enough to set up a framework for good governance practices. Ethics and compliance is woven into the very fabric of our organization. Whether demonstrated in our annual employee certification program or the six core values, we are committed to ethics and compliance excellence in all that we do. Our goal is to set a higher standard and go beyond typical compliance levels: we want to become a benchmark in the industry for how to do business the right way. Take a look at how we are working towards this.
