The Seadrill Code of Conduct is our guide for doing the right thing in business. It uses a principles-based approach covering health, safety and the environment; our people; our partners and suppliers; governments and communities, and protecting our assets.

Our code applies to all employees and leaders and those we work with. The code is supplemented by policies and procedures and supported by online training courses for our employees to enhance understanding and compliance with the code.

We expect all our partners, suppliers, vendors and contractors to act in a way that is consistent with our code and we take appropriate actions where we believe that they have not met our expectations.

We evaluate risks and encourage an open and transparent way of working as the premise for trust and confidence.

Raising concerns

If anyone who works with us becomes aware or is concerned about a situation, reports can be made to:

We will investigate all concerns and have zero tolerance on retaliation in respect of any reports made.

Code of Conduct:


We strive to conduct our business in a manner that respects the rights and dignity of all people. We work to ensure that no slave labour or human trafficking is present in any part of our business or supply chain.

We respect internationally recognized human rights as set out in the International Bill of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. These include the rights of our workforce and those living in communities affected by our activities.

There are many practices that are prohibited by Seadrill, as they are considered forms of unethical conduct. Such practices include: manipulation; concealment; abuse of privileged information; misrepresentation of material facts, or any other unfair-dealing practice.

We have a zero-tolerance attitude to bribery and corruption. We comply with all bribery and corruption-related legislation and ensure that everyone we work with does the same.

We are prohibited from offering or accepting bribes, kickbacks or improper inducements, including facilitation payments. This prohibition applies to offering, promising, giving or authorizing money or any other thing of value to both public officials and individuals working in the private sector.

In addition, we do not accept money or any other thing of value in exchange for violating our duty of loyalty to the company.

We work hard to mitigate and manage our environmental and social impacts.

Some of our activities occur in places that may have cultural significance, are home to protected species, or are in areas with outstanding biological, geographical or social value.

We recognize that some areas may be considered particularly sensitive for oil and gas activities. Decisions to operate in these areas are made only after careful consideration on a case-by-case basis.
