The Growth Company recognises that bribery is contrary to fundamental values of integrity, transparency and accountability and undermines organisational effectiveness. GC staff may not accept gratuity, advantage or personal favour from suppliers or other business partner organisations.
We require our suppliers (including their sub-contractors) and other business partner organisations to show commitment to the prevention, deterrence and detection of bribery and implement effective anti-bribery measures in their business and supply chain.
Furthermore, in principle no company or supplier may attempt to obtain a contract, if there is any direct link, whether through family or interests, with a member of GC staff unless this is properly declared at all stages of the process and that it can be clearly proven that at no point during the procurement process has there been any unfair advantage gained.
