We recognise the level of trust we have established with our customers, suppliers and the public. This has been built by demonstrating integrity in everything we do and by ensuring that our business has sound principles of good governance at its core. Our governance framework incorporates sound systems of control to reduce the risks to our customers, suppliers, employees and partners and these are subject to external scrutiny from auditors and accrediting bodies. This ensures we drive a culture of continuous improvement in standards and performance across our business.

Key elements of our governance framework include:

Code of Conduct

Our code of conduct underpins our strategy and applies to all regions and divisions within the business. It sets out guidelines for the conduct and behaviours expected of our employees. This includes those relevant to the health, safety and well-being of our employees as well as our commitment to providing equal opportunities for all.

Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy

In accordance with section 7 of the Bribery Act 2010 we we have developed a clear policy that sets out the requirements for our staff, partners and suppliers. We monitor our compliance on a regular basis and any queries in relation to the policy should be referred to the legal counsel at ian.mannering@eddiestobart.com.

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains. See Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy for more details.
