We are committed to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, non-discrimination and fairness and have zero tolerance for the commissioning or concealment of fraudulent acts by our people, from board level downwards and throughout the group. As set out in the board charter the directors are required to lead by example in embodying ethical behaviour. As such they are committed to acting in accordance with the RAFT principles in the King III Report – responsibility, accountability, fairness and transparency.
We aim to integrate responsible corporate citizenship into the group’s business strategy and to embed sound governance practices into daily operations to ensure sustainable long-term growth.
A Code of Ethics is in place and all directors and employees are required to abide by its terms. The Code is underpinned by the group’s six Core Values as outlined on page 5 and provides guidance on staff’s expected ethical conduct as well as encourages staff to report any violations of the Code.
