The Group conducts its business operations in accordance with best practice, in compliance with relevant legislation and respecting human rights and ethical practices throughout our value chain. These broad principles are reinforced in our ‘4imprint Supply Chain Code of Conduct’. This is based on the International Labour Organization’s ‘Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work’ and is fully aligned with the Fair Labor Association’s Workplace Code of Conduct.
We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment, bullying or abuse; we comply with wage and working condition and time laws; we do not tolerate forced labour or child labour; and it is our policy that all workers have the right to form or join a trade union and bargain collectively.
Our Modern Slavery Statement describes the activities we are undertaking to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our business operations and supply chain. Our Modern Slavery Statement can be found here.
Bribery and corruption are not tolerated in our business operations or in our supply chain. Our ‘Anti-bribery, financial crime and sanctions policy’ sets out our high standards of ethics and compliance across all aspects of our business and provides detailed guidance on facilitation payments, gifts and hospitality and relationships with third parties, as well as on money-laundering, tax evasion, fraud and sanctions regimes.
