Conducting Business Responsibly
At Paladin, our vision is to be a passionate, trusted and respected company. To help achieve this goal, we will implement the Paladin Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct provides our directors, officers and other employees with clear, concise and firm guidelines for ethical business conduct and is supported and reinforced at all levels of Paladin. We also will publish Paladin’s Three Pillars Policy to spell out exactly what we expect of one another as Paladin employees. The Three Pillars focuses on our culture, our colleagues and our compliance commitment. The policy contained in the Three Pillars is grounded in Paladin’s founding principles to encourage an environment of mutual respect, accountability, trust and transparency.

All employment decisions are based on job-related requirements. This policy pertains to recruiting, hiring, training and development, promotions, compensation, benefits, transfers, education, company activities and all other aspects of employment with Paladin. Our leadership team is responsible for bringing this policy to the attention of all employees, for implementing it through diversity awareness at all company operations within their areas of responsibility, and for ensuring that all personnel actions are administered in a manner consistent with this policy.
