Ethics in Business

Ethical behaviour

 

At CWC, we place ethical behaviour at the
heart of our business activities and we are
committed to operating fairly and with
integrity in all our markets. We believe that
corruption and bribery hurt economies, by
deterring inward investment, and negatively
impact our customers, by increasing
business costs.
All of our employees are required to conduct
themselves in accordance with both our
Anti-Bribery Policy and our Code of
Conduct. Our Anti-Bribery Policy was
updated last year to ensure compliance
with applicable US legislation, following the
establishment of a regional office in the USA.
Our Code of Conduct promotes mutual trust
and respect in our dealings with others;
taking accountability for our actions; acting
with integrity; and acting fairly in our
dealings with competitors and other
stakeholders. Where the Group operates in
conjunction with business partners, third
parties or in joint venture arrangements
without management control, it aims to
promote the application of these policies.
Responsibility for compliance with the policy
remains with the Board, and the Chief
Executives of our businesses are responsible
for communicating, implementing and
monitoring it within their businesses. We ask
all employees to sign up to the principles of
the policies and we also have specific policies
covering gifts and hospitality. In the coming
year we will be conducting refresher training
for our colleagues on the Policy and the Code.
The business integrity risks are regularly
assessed to ensure the appropriate
mitigation procedures are in place and
our internal audit team reviews the
implementation and monitoring of the
Anti-Bribery Policy within the business units
as part of the annual internal audit plan.
In November 2013, CWC was invited to
join Transparency International’s Business
Integrity Forum, a group of UK companies
committed to ensuring their operations
and business dealings are corruption free.
Transparency International has member
representation in over 100 countries.
Members of the Business Integrity Forum
must successfully complete a due diligence
procedure which demonstrates that their
approach to business is consistent with
Transparency International’s ethos and values
