Anti-bribery policy objectives
Incorvus is committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery and money laundering. Incorvus anti-bribery policy is to conduct all aspects of its business in an honest and ethical manner at all times.
The aim of Incorvus anti-bribery policy is to help the company act in accordance with the Bribery Act 2010 (and other relevant legislation of international reach); maintain the highest possible standards of business practice; and advise individuals of the company’s ‘zero-tolerance’ of bribery.
Under UK law (Bribery Act 2010), bribery and corruption are offences which are punishable for individuals by up to ten years imprisonment. A company found to have taken part in the corruption or wanting adequate procedures to prevent bribery could face an unlimited fine and be excluded from tendering for government contracts.
This policy applies to all permanent and fixed-term staff employed by Incorvus and includes any contractors, consultants or other persons acting under or on behalf of Incorvus.
Incorvus will not:
- Make contributions of any kind with the purpose of gaining any commercial advantage.
- Provide gifts or hospitality with the intention of persuading anyone to act improperly, or to influence a public official in the performance of their duties.
- Make, or accept, ‘kickbacks’ of any kind.
- Keep appropriate internal records that will evidence the business reason for making any payments to third parties.
- Encourage employees to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of malpractice at the earliest possible stage.
- See that anyone raising a concern about bribery will not suffer any detriment as a result, even if that person turns out to be mistaken.
