At Evercam, we are committed to conducting our business with the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and ethical behaviour. This Business Ethics Policy outlines our principles and guidelines for all employees, contractors, suppliers, and partners to ensure that we maintain a culture of ethical conduct and responsible business practices. It is our collective responsibility to uphold these standards and to foster an environment where ethical behaviour is valued, promoted, and celebrated.
The Business Ethics Policy applies to all individuals associated with Evercam Limited, including employees, contractors, suppliers, and partners. It covers all aspects of their roles and responsibilities, ensuring ethical behaviour in areas such as compliance with laws and regulations, conflict of interest, confidentiality and data privacy, fair competition, workplace respect and diversity, environmental responsibility, supplier and partner relationships, reporting and whistleblower protection. This policy sets the expectations for ethical conduct and guides the actions of everyone involved in Evercam.
All individuals associated with Evercam must comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and legal obligations. This includes, but is not limited to, laws related to anti-corruption, antitrust, data protection, intellectual property, fair competition, and insider trading. It is crucial to understand and follow the legal requirements relevant to our business operations and to promptly report any suspected violations.
All employees must avoid situations that could create a conflict of interest between their personal interests and the interests of Evercam. A conflict of interest arises when personal relationships, financial interests, or external activities interfere with the ability to make impartial and objective business decisions. Employees must promptly disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest to their immediate supervisor or the appropriate authority.
Protecting confidential information and maintaining the privacy of personal data is vital to our business. Employees must handle all confidential and sensitive information, whether it belongs to Everam, our customers, or partners, with the utmost care and discretion. Personal data should only be collected, used, and shared in compliance with applicable data protection laws and our internal policies. For further reference please refer to the relevant Evercam policies.
We are committed to promoting fair competition and adhering to all laws and regulations related to competition. Employees must not engage in unfair trade practices, such as price fixing, bid rigging, or market manipulation. It is essential to respect the rights and intellectual property of competitors, customers, and other stakeholders.
We value a diverse and inclusive work environment, where all individuals are treated with respect, dignity, and fairness. Discrimination or harassment based on race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic will not be tolerated. All employees are expected to contribute to a positive and inclusive workplace culture.
We recognize the importance of environmental sustainability and are committed to minimising our impact on the environment. We strive to integrate sustainable practices into our operations, reduce waste, conserve resources, and comply with environmental regulations. It is everyone’s responsibility to support these efforts and promote environmental stewardship.
We expect our suppliers, contractors, and business partners to uphold similar ethical standards. We strive to work with partners who share our commitment to integrity, fair practices, and responsible business conduct. We encourage open and honest communication with suppliers and partners, promoting transparency and a shared dedication to ethical principles.
We encourage all employees to report any concerns, suspected violations, or potential breaches of this policy without fear of retaliation. Evercam maintains confidential reporting channels to allow for anonymous reporting, where appropriate. We are committed to investigating reported concerns promptly and taking appropriate action.
All employees are required to read, understand, and comply with this Business Ethics Policy. Regular training programs will be provided to promote awareness of ethical issues and to ensure employees have the necessary knowledge to uphold these principles.
