Corporate responsibilitySound corporate responsibility practices are integral to our business

Corporate responsibility (CR) is an integral part of our business and we are committed to sound CR policies and practices across the globe.

We believe that the progressive alignment of our values and strategy with responsible and ethical business policies and practices helps enhance employee engagement and is a driver for sustainable growth and success.

Our Group Chief Executive is the Director responsible for CR and our Board takes account of CR matters in our business operations.

We are a member of the FTSE4Good Index, which measures the performance of companies that meet globally recognised corporate responsibility standards.

We are also ranked in the Corporate Knights Global 100 list of the world's most sustainable corporations based on the disclosure of our sustainability practices, financial health, product category and financial sanctions. We have been included in the Global 100 list five times in the past seven years.

Our core values and principles and the standards of behaviour to which every employee is expected to work are set out in the Electrocomponents Code of Conduct, 'Our Standards'. We apply these values and principles to dealings with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

We have a zero tolerance approach to all forms of bribery and corruption. Our Anti-Bribery Policy applies to all businesses, Directors and employees within our Group to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations governing bribery and corruption in the countries in which we operate.
