PRINCIPLE 3: Act ethically and responsibly
Group Global Code of Conduct
The Company has a Group Global Code of Conduct, which is available in eight languages and draws together all of the Company's practices and policies. The Code reflects the Company's values of integrity, honesty, trust, teamwork, respect and a desire for excellence in everything the Company does. It reinforces the need for Directors, employees, consultants and all other representatives of the Company to always act in good faith, in the Company's best interests and in accordance with all applicable policies, procedures, laws and regulations relevant to the regions in which the Company operates.
The Group Global Code of Conduct encourages employees to report (on a confidential basis if desired) conduct that they reasonably believe to be corrupt, illegal or unethical, using the Company's whistleblower program. The program is available to all Company employees, contractors and consultants and is designed to protect individuals who, in good faith, report such conduct, so that they have no fear of reprisal, dismissal or discriminatory treatment.
The Group Global Code of Conduct, which is available in various languages, is communicated to employees in each of the regions in which the Company operates. A copy of the Group Global Code of Conduct is available on the Company's corporate website.
The Whistleblower Policy is also available on the Company's corporate website.
