Our company has defined and put into practice several procedures and policies to be strictly followed. Our corporate conduct is defined by equality and transparency, and absolute respect for the State, our shareholders, our employees as well as our neighbors, and the indigenous and settler communities in the Oriente. By maintaining high technological standards, our operations preserve the environment, and especially inhabitants. With this in mind, we have drafted several clear guidelines to be followed in the case of possible contact. Our presence in Ecuador has also been characterized by the development of mechanisms designed to collaborate with the country's sectors in the greatest disadvantage.
