We are committed to operating its business in an ethical and sustainable way, putting in place formal policies around Modern Slavery and Bribery and Corruption, together with training for all employees and contractors, to ensure these policies are understood and adhered to.
Alliance has an anti-slavery and human trafficking policy, designed to promote compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The policy provides guidance to employees, contractors and other business partners on slavery and human trafficking and the measures taken by Alliance to tackle any slavery and human trafficking in its business and its supply chains.
All employees and contractors are required to comply with this policy, with training on the policy, and on the risk the business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains, forming part of the induction process for all individuals who work for Alliance. Regular refresher training on this and other compliance matters is provided to all employees on an annual basis – see Employee training on this page.
Bribery and corruption
It is our policy to conduct all business in an honest and ethical manner. We take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption and are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships wherever we operate and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery and corruption.
We will uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which we operate. However, as a UK registered Group, we remain bound by UK laws, including the Bribery Act 2010, in respect of our conduct both at home and abroad. Alliance has an anti-bribery and corruption policy, designed to assist in the prevention of bribery and corruption by or involving the Group’s employees. The policy provides guidance both to the Group and its employees and contractors, with respect to their respective obligations and potential liabilities under the Bribery Act 2010. All employees and contractors are required to comply with this policy.
At Alliance, we are fully committed to complying with competition law. We take our compliance obligations seriously and have a zero-tolerance approach towards competition law infringements. Alliance has a robust competition law compliance programme in place to ensure that we uphold the highest standards of conduct in this regard.
The Group also operates a formal Whistleblowing Procedure, to support employees in raising any concerns they may have around any suspected wrongdoing.
In 2020, we rolled out a suite of online training courses to all employees, covering:
- Anti-Money Laundering
- Competition Law
- Market Abuse
- Modern Slavery Act
- Tax Evasion Prevention
