CRU’s Governance and internal oversight structures, policies and working practices are designed and operated to ensure that our business follows best industry practice.

Our commitment to this is consistent with two of our company values of being always adaptable, consistently collaborative and positively proactive. This underpins our approach to all our stakeholders and underlines our desire not only to do things right, but to do the right things.

Our dedicated Compliance department exercises oversight of the global compliance framework and embeds the compliance culture as set by the CRU Executive Committee.

For a comprehensive understanding of our compliance framework, we invite you to explore our Compliance and Governance Policy.

CRU Group Governance and Compliance structures and processes currently cover:

  • Corporate structure and governance
  • CRU Group Policies
  • Employee Training
  • CRU Price Policies
  • External Audits
  • Data Security and Privacy
  • Modern Day Slavery
  • Environment, Social and Governance (ESG)
  • Complaint handling policy

In relation to CRU Prices, our policies, processes and methodologies have been designed to follow IOSCO Principles. We have conducted an external reasonable assurance review in respect to the CRU Alumina Price Index (CRU-API). This audit represents our progression from last year’s limited assurance opinion to a reasonable assurance audit over the preceding 12 months.

In relation to our published Chinese Prices, our policies and processes adhere to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) rules.

CRU has been, and will continue to be, Carbon assessed. As a group we are committed to reducing our environmental impact wherever practical and will ensure carbon reducing measures will form an integral part of CRU’s overall strategy. We will encourage all employees globally to consider this commitment and apply it where possible when making decisions for the business.
