Governance & Ethics

Everyone working to achieve excellence, maintain compliance and the highest standards of responsibility

We run our company to the highest levels of efficiency and integrity, with governance structures and capacity to support us in our aims and to uphold the highest levels of business ethics.

We have a full suite of company policies to support our commitment to be a responsible, ethical and fully compliant company – our integrated management system and accreditations back these up across our operations. A culture of trust, transparency and pride in being among the best in our industry underpins the way we maintain our high standards, as does keeping abreast of regulatory change and best practice in all we do.

We ensure that our Board understands the drivers for sustainable development, and fully appreciates the need to integrate sustainability factors into both risk and opportunity management. We operate a zero tolerance approach to corruption and have robust processes for upholding our Group Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy.

Procurement is an area where we can make a difference, through what we buy, how we buy and how we treat our suppliers, and is an important part of the ethics of our company – see more on this below.
