Our Code of Conduct: Together with Integrity

More than just guidelines, these are the values we as SLB live by. The values we uphold. The values we personify every step of the way.

Your voice matters

As a global tech company, our activity crosses many borders, communities, and people. And while laws differ everywhere, our expectations of each other do not. From employees and directors to contractors and suppliers, we consistently create environments driven by high ethical standards, where everyone feels empowered to speak up. Integrity is a team effort and every one of us is responsible for knowing and representing this Code. And with nearly 100,000 people across 100 countries, our behavior surely makes a difference.



SLB EthicsLine
Our Code provides our people with the information and empowerment they need to focus on what matters most and navigate any ethical challenge they might face at SLB. This is more than a book of rules. It is our culture in action, enabling us all to work with integrity and deliver on our purpose: Together, we create amazing technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all.

Our values drive our culture
Words are important, but our behaviors provide the best evidence of our shared values. They are: People, Technology, and Performance.


Our exceptional and diverse people are the pulse and spirit of who we are, and we look to have the healthiest and happiest employees in our industry.

We're an ambitious and committed group, driven by our shared respect for:

  • Health and safety;
  • Each other’s differences;
  • Spaces free of harassment and discrimination;
  • Human rights and the communities we operate in;
  • Sustainability across all our practices;
  • Personal data privacy.

Through these values and behaviors, we empower everyone to succeed—the ripples of which are felt across our internal culture, customer meetings, partner interactions, and local communities.
