Our Code of Conduct
A Message from Mazen Darwazeh, Vice-Chairman, President and CEO of MENA and Emerging Markets
Anti-bribery and corruption policy
We have a zero tolerance policy for bribery and corruption. As one of the founding members of the global Partnering Against Corruption Initiative, an offshoot of the World Economic Forum, we commit to a programme that fights bribery and corruption.
Modern Slavery Act
We are committed to ensuring that forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking does not take place in our businesses or supply chains. Throughout the world. As part of our commitment we train our employees on labour standards and how to recognise and respond to any incidences of modern slavery. We also analyse and manage any modern slavery risk in our company and supply chains, engaging with our suppliers on the issue and performing due diligence. In addition, we are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), with a commitment to abide by the UNGC’s ten universally accepted principles which include human rights.
‘Speak up’ platform for all regions
Anyone can voice their concerns about potential violations of laws, regulations, our Code of Conduct or company policies through our Speak Up platform. Whether they are an employee or outside of our business, the anonymous reporting service helps us to maintain integrity and our culture of transparency and respect.
We promote safe and healthy workplaces for our employees. Each year, our Group-wide employee welfare campaign, ‘You Are Hikma’, raises awareness of workplace safety, health and environmental conservation. Our Health and Safety Policy is administered across the Group and is updated regularly. Since 1994, all of our offices and factories have been ‘smoke-free’.
