our policies and applicable law?
Am I authorized to do this activity?
Do I feel comfortable doing this activity?

ACCOUNTABILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS
To uphold our Core Values it is important that we are all held
accountable for our actions. How you work is an essential part of
your performance at Albemarle. This includes not only how you
apply our Core Values and this Code in your daily work, but also how
you support others who are responsible for conducting monitoring,
audits or investigations.
Any violation of the Code, Company policies or applicable laws
may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination of
employment. The Company may also voluntarily report potentially
illegal behavior to law enforcement.
Will the activity attract adverse commentary on social media?
Sometimes our work doesn’t go according to plan. For example, a
permit application is delayed or rejected, or a production or sales target
is missed. In those situations, when you think you’re under pressure, it
is even more important to stop and reflect on these questions. Taking
risks or cutting corners is not the answer. It is important that we make
the right decision in every situation.
