The complex landscape in which we operate involves multiple stakeholders, each with their own expectations beyond delivering products profitably. To meet these expectations we measure and manage our social and environmental performance, seek external certification of key activities, implement actions and projects to improve sustainability whilst ensuring we are always transparent about the results.
The Code of Ethics is the cornerstone of our Integrity Programme. It sets out the ethical principles all of us are expected to follow.
It is based upon the three following general principles:
Compliance with Laws and Regulations
Commitment to Integrity
Seeking guidance and reporting concerns
MBDA UK has developed the Charity Challenge Initiative whereby our employees are actively encouraged to support a number of charitable organisations every year. In addition to this, we continue to support charities that support armed forces personnel and their families as well as those who are encouraging the next generation into STEM Careers.
We believe in the importance of volunteering and a number of our employees spend their time engaging with organisations that are aligned with our values including the STEM Ambassador outreach programme.
As a business, environmental management is affecting us in several different ways. We have to maintain compliance with the complexity of environmental legislation, improve our environmental performance in areas such as waste management and energy efficiency and even use an environmental design philosophy for our products to minimise the use of hazardous substances.
The importance of environmental management will only continue to grow over the coming years. A proactive approach to managing the environment now is essential if we are to maintain legal compliance, improve environmental performance and stay ahead of forthcoming environmental constraints. As such, environmental issues are taken very seriously and we have a team dedicated to seeking ways to constantly improve our performance.
