PDG is committed to unyielding integrity and the highest standards of business. Our commitment is fundamental to the core values and beliefs held by PDG’s employees and investors and integral to the global communities where we do business. In selecting suppliers and contractors (“Suppliers”), PDG works hard to choose reputable business partners who are committed to the ethical standards, values and demonstrated business practices compatible with those of PDG. Suppliers include vendors, manufacturers, contractors, and subcontractors, who provide goods or services (including consultants) to PDG or are seeking to provide goods or services to PDG or who are currently parties to agreements for such purposes with PDG or one of its Suppliers.
As an organization engaging a global supply base, PDG understands that there are cultural differences among our Suppliers, however, the Supplier Code of Conduct contains universal principles and it is expected that all PDG Suppliers meet these standards. The Supplier Code of Conduct applies to any employee, agent, or other representative of a company, corporation or other entity that provides any goods or services on behalf of, at the request of, or in connection with work completed for PDG.
The Supplier Code of Conduct documents the principles, guidelines and expectations for establishing and maintaining a business relationship with PDG. PDG is committed to partnerships with Suppliers that share the PDG dedication to conducting business in a legal, ethical, and socially responsible manner. A continuing business relationship which is mutually rewarding depends upon it.
PDG reserves the right to verify that a Supplier’s business operations meet these expectations. Failure to act in a manner consistent with these expectations may impede our ability to do business together in the future.
PDG expects its Suppliers to maintain and enforce policies requiring adherence to business conduct and practices in accordance with applicable law and which comply with our requirements.

The health and safety of our employees and all personnel associated with our work is our highest priority. Our Suppliers are expected to:
