Nevsun’s Code of Ethics defines our commitments to ethical and sustainable social and environmental business practices wherever we operate. To emphasize and promote the importance of ethical conduct, Nevsun’s board of directors (the “Board”) adopted a Code of Ethics applicable to employees, contractors, officers and directors of Nevsun and each of its subsidiaries. The purpose of this code is to promote honest and ethical conduct, full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure, and compliance with applicable governmental rules and regulations. There is accountability for any violations of the Code. To ensure and monitor compliance with the Code, the Company circulates a copy of the Code to each new employee, requesting a signature acknowledging its receipt. The Code of Ethics was last revised and updated in April 2015 and is available on our website here.
Embedded in the Code of Ethics are provisions addressing ethical conduct, conflicts of interest, compliance and disclosure obligations, financial reporting, accountability, violations of the Code, bribery and corruption, health, safety, and environment, and human rights.
