Our Five Principles: Working with
Respect, integrity and dignity
Our founder, Sazo Idemitsu had a unique approach to doing business – this approach is expressed in our 5 Principles. These Principles have been the foundation of our culture and identity for 100 years and continue to be today. They inform our decisions and behaviours, while acting as a guiding philosophy behind everything we do.
Respect for human beingsCentral to Idemitsu’s philosophy is the belief that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. This belief flows through each and every element of our business approach worldwide.
The great family-like conceptWe look after each other—working together to create growth and opportunity. This ensures a supportive, collaborative environment where everyone feels respected and free to share ideas.
Independence and autonomyWe empower our employees to work with autonomy — encouraging them to take responsibility for their tasks and deliver them with pride.
Don't be a slave to moneyOur founder was not primarily motivated by money, but rather by the ideal that business can make a positive impact on society. That’s why we never let our desire to succeed compromise our integrity as good corporate citizens.
A bridge from producers to consumersWe believe that we have a responsibility to give back to society. We are committed to delivering quality products that improve the lives of our customers and communities in which we work.
Our Core Values
The 5 principles underpin the Values of Idemitsu Australia Resources. More than posters on a wall, these Values are lived by our people every day–they drive our decisions, and help create the unique ‘family-like’ culture Idemitsu is renowned for.
We put people first
We care about our people, look after each other and encourage each other to grow. We treat everyone with respect and create an environment where people can reach their full potential. By valuing people, we achieve more for our employees, our stakeholders and the community.
We are always improving
We have a long history of innovation and thinking differently. This stems from our ability to learn from our mistakes and use them as an opportunity to grow and evolve. At the same time, we strive to do more with less, and never stop challenging each other to improve in every aspect of what we do.
We do what we say we’ll do
We are committed to operating with integrity and staying true to our word. That means taking responsibility for our actions, delivering on our commitments and always being positive in our intentions. By doing all this, we build long-lasting, trusted relationships.
