Ethics & Compliance

Opla is committed to operating its business demonstrating the highest regard for integrity and ethical conduct. We firmly believe that establishing a reputation built on honesty, integrity and accountability is key to our success. The Code of Conduct and Business Ethics policy, hereafter referred to as the “Code”, sets forth the general principles of conduct employees are expected to demonstrate in their daily activities. The Code does not supersede the specific policies or procedures addressed in any specific policy statement.

The Code reflects Opla’s commitment to a culture of honesty, integrity and accountability and outlines the basic principles and policies with which all employees are expected to comply. At the beginning of the employment relationship, employees are provided with a copy of the Code. All employee’s or external contacts' cooperation and commitment to uphold these principles, is essential to the continued success of our business and our reputation as a good corporate citizen.

Opla promotes an open door approach to communication. The immediate supervisor is often in the best position to provide assistance and help the employee work through the issue. There may be times, however, where the supervisor is unable to provide the necessary support, or the employee is not comfortable bringing their concern forward at this level. In these instances, employees are encouraged to speak with the next level of leadership or if they prefer, contact the Human Resources & Compliance department at +1 877 651-0084 or email us at compliance@oplaenergy.com. Alternative option is submitting anonymous report to Opla Compliance Board through this link.

The Opla Energy global compliance program consists of the following key elements:

  • Internal policies and procedures, guided by the principals in Opla Way: The Opla Energy Code of Conduct, that provide a foundation to the business on compliant actions and behavior.

  • Comprehensive employee training program that are designed to be engaging, challenging, and tailored to the key risks that employees face on an ongoing basis.

  • Due diligence procedures for intermediaries and consultants, and an enhanced risk-based process for classifying channel partners and suppliers.

  • Regular compliance risk assessments focused on country and third party risk, with the results used to allocate resources and identify opportunities for continuous improvement of the compliance program.

  • Opla Board of Directors that meets quarterly for senior officers of the company. The strong ethical culture at Opla Energy depends on the commitment of employees at every level, and strong leadership by senior leaders and management.

  • Open Reporting Environment where employees are encouraged to report any ethics or compliance matter without fear of retaliation.

  • Prompt investigations of any potential compliance violation that is raised through any means of reporting. Investigations at Opla Energy follow standard procedures to ensure that all reviews are performed properly and fairly, and that the Company identifies all actions necessary to prevent future compliance violations.

  • Human resources function, comprised of locally compliant processes and procedures for management of HR related issues, including implementation of locally compliant standards for pre-hire screening of employees; a process to screen existing employees prior to promotion to select roles where they may be exposed to finance and/or corruption-related risks; and implementation of a global new hire compliance training module for all employees.

Through this program, we demonstrate our commitment to compliance and integrity in all of our actions – every day, everywhere in the world and without exception.
