We are guided by international frameworks, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board (SASB), CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and the United Nations frameworks that are associated with the Global Compact (UNGC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Code of business conduct

Code of business conduct

Our guiding principles

Our Code of Business Conduct is our guiding principle of ethical standards and drives the way we do business around the globe. As such, we adhere to the values and behaviors outlined in our code in everything we do and expect the same of those working for us.

Human Rights Standard

Human Rights Standard

Committed to respecting human rights worldwide

Weatherford believes that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their gender, race, nationality, place of residence, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, religion, language, physical ability, or any other status. We do not tolerate discrimination. We believe that failing to honor the human rights of our employees and those with whom we conduct business can create an unfavorable work or social environment that leads to low morale, employee turnover, an unengaged workforce, and can degrade our stakeholder relationships and compliance with community obligations.

Our Human Rights Standard coupled with our Code of Business Conduct reinforces our culture of internationally recognized standards for human rights and zero tolerance for human rights abuses. Our Human Rights Standard is guided by international human rights principles found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Conflict Minerals Policy

Conflict Minerals Policy

Committed to a culture of compliance

Weatherford is committed to a culture of compliance with the laws of each of the countries in which we operate. Weatherford is also committed to sourcing materials and components from companies that share our values and commitment to human rights, ethics and environmental responsibility. Our commitment to balance good business with sound, socially responsible engagement is evidenced in our One Weatherford philosophy, our Operational Excellence and Performance System, and our Code of Business Conduct.

The United Nations Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) determined the trade of certain minerals and their derivatives (i.e., tantalum, tin, tungsten, and gold) mined in the DRC and surrounding countries has helped fuel war and human rights violations in the eastern region of the DRC. These minerals and their derivatives originating from these countries and mined to fund ongoing conflicts and human rights violations are now referred to as Conflict Minerals.

In July 2012, the U.S. Congress enacted the U.S. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) which, among other things, imposes supply chain reporting requirements on publicly traded companies with regard to the use of Conflict Minerals in manufacturing operations. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) subsequently adopted rules requiring publicly traded companies to perform due diligence as to the source and chain of custody of tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold in its supply chain after January 31, 2013.

Weatherford supports efforts to increase transparency regarding Conflict Minerals and to eliminate their use. As a result, Weatherford adopted due diligence procedures consistent with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) guidelines and seeks to obtain chain of custody declarations from all Weatherford suppliers of tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold and their derivatives incorporated into Weatherford-manufactured products in accordance with its obligations pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act.

Summary of Compliance

Policies and Procedures

Weatherford Compliance policies and procedures are designed to provide the tools and guidance needed for our employees to perform their jobs with excellence and integrity.

We have implemented fit-for-purpose compliance policies and procedures on a variety of subjects including Anti-Corruption, Gifts & Entertainment, Conflict of Interest, Computer System Use, Antitrust Global Competition, Anti-Money Laundering, Records Information Management, and Trade Compliance to meet legal compliance obligations and mitigate corruption risks.

Weatherford had a business relationship with Unaoil that terminated in 2013. During this relationship, Weatherford took steps to ensure that anti-corruption controls and compliance measures were in place, including conducting due diligence on Unaoil, binding Unaoil through contractual terms, providing training to Unaoil employees, and obtaining periodic ethics and compliance certifications from Unaoil. Weatherford fully cooperated with voluntary document requests relating to this relationship that were issued by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2016, and also presented to the Department of Justice the results of its internal investigative activity in this regard, which did not identify information indicating Weatherford knowledge of corrupt dealings by Unaoil on behalf of Weatherford. No pending requests remain open from the Department of Justice or any other government agency, to our knowledge, and the Company does not believe it is the target of further investigations regarding Unaoil. Weatherford maintains a robust compliance program including stringent anticorruption controls which includes the execution of past reviews and investigations of our Iraq activity to ensure compliance with all applicable law and our enterprise requirements.


We are committed to enriching the communities in which we live and work by engaging with local communities, volunteering our time, and donating much needed resources. Our employees are passionate about their work and about making a difference. We encourage them to participate in causes they feel strongly about and offer them opportunities to become engaged. 

Being a good corporate citizen also means having an unwavering commitment to act responsibly and with integrity, respecting the fundamental rights of our people. We strive to ensure individual rights within our area of influence. Together, we are committed to fighting corruption, protecting human rights, and leaving a lasting and positive impact on our world.
