We believe that high standards of ethical behaviour are fundamental to our long-term future.
Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics provides the overarching basis under which our employees and officers are required to uphold high standards of ethical conduct. We have a long-standing commitment to transparency, honesty, integrity and fairness, and to a zero tolerance approach to bribery, as we strongly believe this is a fundamentally important tenet of doing business.
Our projects during this year have included a review of our global procurement procedures to enhance, clarify and streamline our expectations of suppliers, including a review of our due diligence approach and Code of Conduct for Suppliers. We believe we should actively drive social, economic and environmental improvements in our supply chain, ultimately helping to improve livelihoods and build communities, and our Supplier Code of Conduct details how we expect SABMiller Procurement suppliers to act to ensure that our high anti-corruption standards are continually achieved.
