What is the Code?

The Code contains information and resources that will help you conduct Johnson Matthey's business legally, ethically, responsibly and reflecting our values. It sets out our individual and collective responsibilities – the things each of us must do.

The Code is divided into four sections to make it easier to use: People, Market, Company and Planet. It is designed so that you can use it in your daily activities. It contains examples and things to look out for, as well as guidance for making decisions.

Code of Ethics

For me, 'doing the right thing' is fundamental to Johnson Matthey's success.

Doing the right thing is about doing good business; not 'business at any cost'. It is about treating everyone fairly, keeping our promises and being honest and open with ourselves and others when things have not gone as planned.

Thank you. Robert MacLeod, Chief Executive

Ethical Decision Making

To help guide you in your decision making we have included a two part process that you can use when you are not sure what the right thing to do is or to test a decision you have made. Use this process to help you do the right thing...
