A Statement from Richard Higham, Acteon Group Chief Executive
“We are living in times of profound change. Throughout the globe, there are rapidly developing expectations of international companies such as ours. These expectations are increasingly being written into legislation, conventions and the like. We must continually adapt to the environment in which we live and remain committed to complying with our legal and ethical obligations.
Irrespective of any specific legal requirements, Acteon is committed to dealing fairly with all of our clients, competitors, suppliers, agents, staff and other parties that maybe affected by our businesses. We are determined that no one associated with our businesses should seek, offer or accept any inappropriate advantage or inducement. We must ensure that all our dealings are carried out in a fair and honest manner, wherever they take place in the world.
Not only do we have to act as I have described above, we also need, and indeed are required, to be able to demonstrate that we behave in this way. To assist and guide us in our endeavours, we have created a Compliance Program to help us to conduct business appropriately – in an honest, safe, professional and ethical manner. The majority of people want and expect all of our companies, employees, contractors, agents, distributors and other parties associated with Acteon, to use this Compliance Program to actively manage and carry out their business activities in an appropriate and ethical way – “The Acteon Way”.
