Core Values

Our core values underpin everything we do. They are:

  • Integrity
  • Honesty
  • Respect

Our business principles align with our commitment to quality and excellence. We incorporate them—and our core values—into our daily activities.


Long-term profitability is essential to our business goals and our continued growth.  It is a measure of both our efficiency and the value that our customers place on us.  It supplies the resources necessary for the continued investment required to meet our customers’ needs.  Without profits and a strong financial foundation, it would not be possible to fulfill our responsibilities.


Motiva supports free enterprise.  We seek to compete fairly, ethically, and within the framework of applicable competition laws.  We will not prevent others from competing freely with us.

Business Integrity

Motiva insists on honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of our business and expects the same from those with whom we do business.

Political Activities

Motiva acts in a socially responsible manner. Where individuals wish to engage in activities in the community, including running for election to public office, they may do so where this is appropriate in the light of local circumstances.

Health, Safety, Security and the Environment

Motiva has a systematic approach to health, safety, security and environmental management.  To this end, Motiva manages these matters as critical business activities, and sets standards and targets for improvement.  We continually look for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, products and services.

Local Communities

Motiva aims to be a good neighbor by continuously improving the ways in which we contribute to the general well-being of the communities in which we operate. We manage the social impacts of our business activities carefully and work with others to enhance the benefits to local communities and to mitigate any negative impacts from our activities.

Communication and Engagement

Motiva recognizes that regular dialogue and engagement with our stakeholders are essential. We are committed to reporting our performance by honestly and responsibly providing complete and relevant information to employees, business partners and local communities, subject to considerations of business confidentiality.


We comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the places we conduct business.
