About our Business Principles:
Our Business Principles are the foundation for how we do business everywhere we operate, and are at the heart of our Code of Conduct.
We act with honesty, integrity and fairness in our dealings both internally and externally. We do not tolerate any form of bribery, including improper offers of payments or gifts to or from employees. We avoid any contracts that might lead to, or suggest, a conflict of interest between personal activities and the business. We neither give nor accept hospitality or gifts that might appear to incur an obligation. We pursue mutually beneficial relationships and seek to promote the application of our Business Principles with our business partners and suppliers.
Compliance with the law
We seek to comply with all applicable domestic and international laws and appropriate standards and principles.
Health and safety
We protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, employees, partners and the communities in which we operate and disclose any information that comes to our knowledge that clearly demonstrates that any of our products or services breach internationally accepted safety standards or guidelines.
We provide the best possible return for our shareholders over the longer term. We base our investment decisions, acquisitions and business relationships on economic criteria but we also take into account social and environmental considerations.
Public policy and communications
We communicate openly and transparently with all our stakeholders within the bounds of commercial confidentiality. We protect confidential information from improper disclosure, and any authorised communication of confidential information should be limited to individuals who need it to carry out their work.
We value the trust our customers place in us and safeguard the information provided to us.
We base relationships with and between employees on respect for individuals and their human rights. We do not tolerate child labour. We do not accept any form of discrimination, harassment or bullying. We pursue equality of opportunity and inclusion for all employees through our employment policies and practices.
Communities and society
We aim to deliver products and services that can transform people’s lives and contribute to more sustainable living by empowering individuals, contributing to wider development goals and reducing environmental impacts. To do this, we must operate responsibly wherever we do business to maintain the trust of society.Download our Code of Conduct – 3MB
