The group is strictly opposed to and practices a zero tolerance policy towards any form of corruption. Included in our definition of corruption, is the action of giving, receiving, requiring or otherwise transmitting or receiving improper benefits, which are likely to affect employees or others’ actions towards our companies.
Corruption threatens the rule of law, undermines good governance, fairness and social justice, and distorts competition, democracy and human rights because it undermines ethical and moral values. It will also cause companies to incur direct financial losses and destroy their reputations.
As a global company with projects and contracts in Africa and Asia, we monitor closely on the increased risk of corruption and exploitation this may have. This is an obligation for all our employees and in particular for the corporate Board of Directors and Executive Management. Anti-corruption is a prioritized area in which we maintain constant focus on prevention, risk reduction measures and the identification of non-compliance.
