ARX:

Business Conduct and Ethics

At ARC Resources Ltd. ("ARC" or the "Corporation"), we have always recognized the value of growing and developing trusting relationships with our employees, contractors, vendors, landowners, investors and the community at large. These relationships are based on integrity and trust and our commitment to maintaining high ethical standards throughout our day-to-day dealings with others. 

For ARC’s excellent reputation to be maintained, we require the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct from all of our employees. This Code reflects our commitment to a culture of honesty, integrity, respect and accountability and outlines the basic principles and policies with which all employees are expected to comply. ARC demands the highest level of personal conduct from all employees and Corporation representatives.

For ARC’s success to continue, not only must we do what is required by law but we will also do what is "right". The test for this is simple, ask yourself if there is any reason you would not want a co-worker, an associate, a neighbour or the government to be fully aware of your conduct and motives? Is anyone’s life, health or safety, or the environment endangered by the action? If these questions cannot quickly be answered no, then you need to re-think your actions and talk to a supervisor. This also includes situations where you may witness someone else at ARC engaging in behaviours that are not “right”. If there is any confusion with regards to complying with both the letter and the spirit of our policies and all applicable laws and regulations you are expected to seek guidance.

Please read this Code carefully. While it takes time to build a reputation of trust and integrity, a single thoughtless or unethical act can destroy what we have carefully built over years. The Leadership Team at ARC is 100% committed to this Code. Please feel free to contact any member of the Leadership team, your manager or another manager or the Whistleblower Hotline (1-866-291-6690 or ARC@openboard.info) should you have questions or witness behaviours that could be a violation of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.

ARC’s management is committed to living up to high standards of ethical behaviour and integrity. This Code has been read, discussed and adopted by all of our officers. We believe that effective corporate governance begins with a strong Board of Directors, able to act independently. Our Board consists of a majority of outside, independent directors all of whom have read and committed to this Code.

Every day, decisions are made in the conduct of our business. As individuals, we are all accountable for making the right decisions for the right reasons. This Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides guidance for our decisions.
