  • Supplier Ethics
Our five core values—Integrity, Commitment, Passion, Seamlessness and Speed—are aligned with those of the Aditya Birla Group. They underpin everything we do and set our standards of behavior and performance.​​

As individuals and as a company, we live by these values every day. Each employee is held accountable for adhering to these principles, and we seek to work with partners that share similar personal standards.

  • Novelis has an Employee Code of Conduct, which applies to all employees of Novelis Inc. It also applies, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to the Company’s subsidiaries and affiliates.
  • Additionally, we have a Code of Ethics for Senior Financial Officers, which reflects our commitment to financial integrity in compliance with accounting policies, laws and regulations. The Code of Ethics also sets specific principles to guide the performances of the company’s senior financial officers.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Our Supplier Code of Conduct applies our ethical principles to our supply chain. The Supplier Code of Conduct has been developed based on our Code of Conduct and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), of which we became a signatory in 2011.  We expect all our suppliers to comply with the Code of Conduct, including metal and non-metal suppliers. We expect each supplier’s legal representative to sign and return a copy of Acknowledgment to Novelis, confirming the suppliers’ understanding of the Supplier Code of Conduct.

The Supplier Code of Conduct is available for download in the following languages:


​Public Policy

We support dialogue on developing low-carbon solutions and increasing post-consumer recycling programs. Nearly all of our advocacy is conducted through aluminum associations. We also have a government affairs resource in Brazil, and we engage a part-time consultant in Washington, D.C. These parties track environmental regulations and other policies that influence our business, allowing us to adjust our practices when appropriate.

Act with Integrity and in the Best Interest of Novelis

Novelis Code of Conduct has a section entitled “Act with integrity and in Novelis’ best interest.” Two topics within this section are especially important for Procurement and when dealing with suppliers:

  • Conflicts of Interest: Employees must avoid taking any action that creates, or might appear to create, a conflict between their own interests and the interests of Novelis.
  • Gifts and Gratuities: Employees must exercise caution when dealing with gifts, gratuities and other forms of special benefits given to, or taken from, customers, suppliers or competitors; acceptance or provision of such benefits can be construed as an attempt to secure favorable treatment. Suppliers are discouraged from offering any gifts or gratuities to Novelis employees.


We expect our suppliers to respect these rules when dealing Novelis.​​​​​​​​​​
