We take business conduct seriously and have policies and guidelines in place which set standards concerning ethics, sound business practices and wider governance issues. John Menzies plc is included in the FTSE4Good index for socially responsible investment and we believe that our business conduct, policies and guidelines that we have in place concerning ethics, sound business practices and wider governance issues will not only enhance our standing in the community, but also provide a better business for all our stakeholders.
The Company recognises that being a socially responsible company adds to and enhances the Company’s overall value, both short and long term. The impact our business activities have on the environment and communities in which we operate are important to us, and to our stakeholders. We therefore have systems in place to identify, analyse and manage key risks arising from our operations, and develop better business methods. The policies and guidelines we have in place set standards concerning ethics, sound business practices and wider governance issues.
As a business, we have discovered that when it comes to reducing energy usage, what's good for the plant tends to be good for our business too.
The Board expects the Group to conduct its operations based on sound ethical practices which are open and free from discrimination and harassment, and will promote a positive representation of the Group to stakeholders. The Group has adopted and disseminated appropriate policies and procedures, including clear guidelines on matters such as competition law, bribery and whistle-blowing, and the Board has tasked each Divisional Managing Director to be responsible for the implementation of all of these policies in their divisions.
