Code of Business Conduct and Ethics

Our ethics are not simply rules and regulations; rather, they describe for us the right way of doing business and of relating to others. Often, they reflect standard legal concepts. Always, they represent our values and how we expect ourselves and our fellow employees to treat each other, as well as our consultants, contractors, suppliers, shareholders and the people who live and work in the communities, and countries where IAMGOLD operates. It is the responsibility of all IAMGOLD employees to read, understand and abide by IAMGOLD’s Code of Business Conduct & Ethics and it is the responsibility of all employees to ensure that consultants and contractors abide by the Code’s contents.

 

Disclosure Policy

IAMGOLD is committed to a policy of timely, factual, accurate and complete disclosure of all material information in order to keep shareholders and other interested parties informed on the Company's activities and business. IAMGOLD is also committed to preventing selective disclosure of material information. This policy extends to all employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, its board of directors and those authorized to speak on its behalf. It covers disclosure in documents filed with the securities regulatory authorities (including stock exchanges) and written statements made in the Company's annual and quarterly reports, news releases, letters to shareholders, presentations by management and information contained on the Company's web site and other electronic communications. It extends to oral statements made in meetings and telephone conversations with analysts and investors, interviews with the media, as well as speeches, press conferences and conference calls.

 

Whistleblower Policy

  2. IAMGOLD employees, or members of the public, may report complaints externally by using IAMGOLD Confidential Complaint Reporting Hotline. The Hotline is provided by an independent third party service provider, so that complaints can be reported in an anonymous and confidential manner.
    The Hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling:
    North America: 1-866-506-6954
    International: 1-416-385-6016

    The Hotline is also available by completing a web form at www.clearviewconnects.com or mailing a letter to Confidential Post Office Box P.O. Box 11017, Toronto, Ontario M1E 1N0
    Last, complaints can be made by making a Skype call to the following username: clearview-iamgold. 
  1. If any employee, or member of the public, is uncertain whether an activity in which he or she is engaged with or witnesses an activity that could be construed as a violation of IAMGOLD’s Code of Business Conduct & Ethics, should discuss the matter with his or her immediate supervisor, or an officer of the Company. There is no particular sequence or chain-of-command that an employee must adhere to in reporting violations. If he or she wishes an employee may report directly to the Senior Management Team or to the President.

 

All complaints will be treated on a confidential basis and, if reported using the Hotline and if so specified by the person reporting the complaint, will be treated on an anonymous basis. Generally, a report of a complaint will only be disclosed to those persons who have a need to know in order to properly carry out an investigation of such a complaint. Retaliation against any employee who honestly reports a concern about an illegal or unethical conduct will not be tolerated. The reporting of this behaviour is part of our core culture of accountability and responsibility and IAMGOLD does not tolerate retaliation – this our promise in return for our employees making such reports. Anyone engaging in retaliatory conduct will be subject to disciplinary action by IAMGOLD, which may include termination.
