Jubilee believes that long-term success hinges on sustainable development, which benefits everyone – the business, society and environment. To this end, Jubilee has adopted a policy of responsible, proactive environmental management and works hard to ensure compliance with relevant legislative obligations in the course of any exploration activities.

In pursuing the corporate objective, we have committed to the highest level of governance and strive to foster a culture that values and rewards exemplary ethical standards, personal and corporate integrity and respect for others. Our approach to governance is predicated on the belief that there is a link between high-quality governance and the creation of shareholder value. Our expectations of our employees and those to whom we contract business are set out in our Code of Business Conduct.
