We have an unwavering commitment to high standards of business ethics and the promotion of human rights within our business and in our dealings with stakeholders. We apply these standards to all dealings with employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. We place a high priority on compliance with all legislative and regulatory requirements and on the maintenance of high ethical standards, within each of the territories and jurisdictions in which we conduct our business.

Our Global Code of Conduct (the Code) provides the guiding principles, forms the basis for how we do business and is underpinned by the common values of honesty, integrity and fairness. The Code, which is available on our website and reviewed annually, provides the framework for our policies, processes and procedures relating to human rights, equal opportunity, ethics, compliance, anti-harassment, anti-bribery and corruption, conflicts of interest and regulatory compliance. Provisions to ensure compliance with new legislation to eradicate slavery and human
trafficking have been added to our code during 2016.

Our global Ethics Hotline provides a confidential way for employees to raise concerns about inappropriate behaviour anonymously. The hotline utilises an independent telephone and internet provider, offering support in local languages and has an internal escalation and resolution process.
