SPIRIT Values set the tone for how we behave. The words are not proprietary to our company but the combination and the acronym are pure ConocoPhillips.
We operate safely. As our first SPIRIT Value, safety is the cornerstone of ConocoPhillips operations. Our philosophy – “Our work is never so important that we cannot take the time to do it safely” – was adopted in the late 1930s and has served a constant reminder of the importance of protecting the health and well-being of our people, our partners and the communities where we work each day.
Our people are our most important asset and the key to our success. That’s why we respect one another, and consistently demonstrate honesty and commitment in our words and actions. We believe in creating an environment of trust, and giving people access to learning opportunities and challenging work assignments, so they can realize their true potential as individuals and contribute to the company’s progress.
We aim to be the preferred and trusted partner of choice for our stakeholders and to operate in an ethical and trustworthy manner. By demonstrating visible and active leadership in communities where we operate, ConocoPhillips creates and maintains inclusive, honest, and mutually-beneficial relationships with those who are impacted by our business or who have the ability to impact our business. Our goal is to create and maintain long-term relationships.
We are accountable for our actions. As a good neighbor and civic partner we strive to make a positive impact in communities where we operate through charitable efforts and volunteer commitments. We are committed to conducting our business in a manner that promotes a healthy environment while thoughtfully preparing for the future by pursuing lower carbon energy sources. We adhere to robust operating standards and procedures and have a proven track record of responsible operations. We use technological advances to minimize our environmental footprint; resource development, safety and environmental stewardship can and must be achieved together.
We have an uncommon ability to unlock the potential in our people, technologies, and the world’s energy resources. Developing and applying innovative technology is a key component of our future success and social license to operate. As an independent company we focus on applying the most leveraging technologies where they can create the most value, anticipating change and responding with creative solutions. We are agile and responsive to the changing needs of stakeholders and embrace learning opportunities from our experience around the world.
We work together, building strong partnerships and relationships with our colleagues, as well as all people impacted by or interested in our activities. We believe in proactively seeking out different perspectives, breaking down silos and communicating the “why” behind the decisions we make, and looking beyond the events of today to help our company succeed in the future.
