Code of Conduct

Behn Meyer believes ethical companies have a competitive advantage and are able to attract and retain the best people. Our Code of Conduct sets out expected behaviours of our employees and how they relate to our values and principles. External stakeholders across the value chain also benefit from the rules laid out in our Code of Conduct as it encourages compliance with all applicable laws and regulations by all parties. Compliance safeguards the long-term interests of the company, its customers, suppliers, brands, and retailers, and the local communities it operates in.

The commitments in Behn Meyer’s Code of Conduct also correspond to internationally accepted ethical standards in business, including promotion of transparency in operations and safer workplace practices.

Beyond the Code of Conduct, the company also has an Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy (“ABC Policy”) to provide guidance on how to deal with improper solicitation, bribery, and other corrupt activities and issues that may arise in the course of doing business.
