The Company and its subsidiaries must follow this anti-bribery and corruption policy, together with polices on gifts and corporate hospitality (the “Policies”), outlining the Company’s position on preventing and prohibiting bribery and corruption. These Policies apply to all employees and they are required to familiarize themselves and comply with these Policies.
A bribe is a financial advantage or other reward that is offered to, given to, or received by an individual or company (whether directly or indirectly) to induce or influence that individual or company to perform public or corporate functions or duties improperly.
Employees and others acting for or on behalf of the Company are strictly prohibited from making, soliciting or receiving any bribes or un-authorised payments. As part of its anti-bribery measures, the Company accepts transparent, proportionate, reasonable and bona fide hospitality and promotional expenditure, whether given or received.
A breach of these Policies by an employee will be treated as grounds for disciplinary action. Employees and other individuals acting for the Company should note that bribery is a criminal offence that may result in imprisonment and or an unlimited fine for the individual and an unlimited fine for the Company.
The success of the Company’s anti-bribery and corruption measures depends on all employees, and those acting for the Company, playing their part in helping to prevent bribery. Therefore, all employees and others acting for, or on behalf of, the Company are encouraged to report any suspected bribery in accordance with the procedures set out in the Policies or in the case of third parties to the Company Secretary or Directors. The Company will support any individuals who make such a report in good faith.
