Ethics and Integrity

Integrity will help us compete successfully in everything we do. Our Code of Business Conduct reinforces our long-standing commitment to high ethical standards and summarizes the fundamental importance of acting with integrity. It’s important that our employees, stakeholders and business partners understand our position regarding ethical business conduct. 

While all our employees, officers, directors and other parties acting within the scop of representing Marathon Oil are responsible for adhering to our high ethical standards and acting with integrity, Marathon Oil's Corporate Compliance & Ethics organization is responsible for directing the corporate compliance and ethics program. This includes policy development and coordinating with relevant organizations to ensure compliance, providing training and guidance, and leading Marathon Oil’s response to inquiries or reports submitted to the Integrity Helpline.

Integrity is not new to Marathon Oil. Our commitment to do business honestly and fairly began long ago and continues today. Integrity helps us compete successfully in everything we do and our Code of Business Conduct is critical to Marathon Oil’s continued license to operate.

Our Code of Business conduct

Marathon Oil’s Code of Business Conduct lays the foundation for good business decisions. No single document can list and explain every question or business practice. To further guide decision-making, we also have adopted policies for specific issues mentioned in the Code. Some policies may be of interest to external parties. For questions or to learn more about our Code of Business Conduct, contact our office of Corporate Compliance & Ethics.

Reporting A Concern/Raising A Question

Our employees are required to promptly report any identified actual or potential Code of Business Conduct violations to any of the resources listed in the Code of Business Conduct. As noted in our Code of Business Conduct and Policy for Reporting Business Ethics Concerns, we will not tolerate retaliation for good faith reporting of actual or potential Code of Business Conduct violations.

We maintain several options to raise questions or report an ethical concern, including:

  • Direct management or other members of our reporting chain
  • The Marathon Oil organization referenced in each section of the Code of Business Conduct
  • Marathon Oil’s Corporate Compliance & Ethics organization
  • Marathon Oil’s Integrity Helpline.

Integrity Helpline

Our Integrity Helpline is one of several available options to raise questions about ethical business conduct or report suspected illegal or unethical activity as it pertains to Marathon Oil. Submitters using either Integrity Helpline contact option may choose to remain anonymous. While submissions to the Integrity Helpline are routed to our Corporate Compliance & Ethics organization for review and action as necessary, both Integrity Helpline contact options are maintained by a third party to protect anonymity if requested by the submitter.

There are two options for initiating a report or inquiry via the Integrity Helpline:

  • Toll-free telephone number: (+1 877.713.8314)
  • Access the external website by clicking here.
