Aiming to realize the UACJ Group Identity, UACJ created the UACJ Way as a set of basic guidelines for all employees to follow. Founded on the principles of safety and compliance, the UACJ Way expresses a path forward for actions in accordance with the three values of respecting and understanding our associates, embracing honesty and foresight, and being curious and challenging. All members of the UACJ Group are expected to follow these shared guidelines so that the Group can continue contributing to people’s livelihoods and their communities for many years into the future.
Respect and understand your associates
- Value and contribute to your workplace’s efforts to engage with the local community

Embrace honesty and foresight
