Bribery and Corruption
Bribes and all such similar payments, must not be offered, promised, given, accepted, condoned, knowingly benefitted from or demanded. There are no exceptions.
Please note that the giving of and the receipt of such payments are equally prohibited.
Whilst we believe that, given the nature of our business and the markets in which we operate, each one of us will recognise ‘a bribe or similar payment’ in the event that such an unlikely situation arises. Nevertheless, we set out a helpful definition of what constitutes a bribe or illegal payment: "To make or offer, or to accept, either directly or indirectly, any payment or anything of value, whether in the form of compensation, business entertainment, gift, contribution, gratuity, or other form, that is illegal or unacceptable under generally accepted sound business practices."
