Code of Conduct
APG & CO SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT
APG & Co has recently updated its Supplier Code of Conduct (Code) and is currently working through the process of getting a signed agreement to the new Code from all of its current suppliers. It is hoped that, over time, this process will extend beyond our first tier suppliers, to all levels of APG & Co's supply chain and operations (including all authorised sub-contractors and raw materials suppliers). All new suppliers to APG & Co are required to agree to adhere to the Code, and to sign and return the Supplier Commitment, as part of the vendor procurement process.
The Code sets out the minimum standards of ethical and responsible behaviour that APG & Co expects from its suppliers and business partners. It is based on International Labour Organization (ILO) standards, national legislative requirements and accepted best business practice. The Code is to be followed in conjunction with the APG & Co Global Sourcing Principles, and it sets out fundamental requirements for all of our suppliers and business partners.READ SUPPLIER CODE OF CONDUCT

We recognise the important role whistleblowers perform within the Group and encourage the reporting of issues where there is a belief there has been a breach of the Group’s polices or the law. The purpose of this policy is to inform individuals how they can make whistleblower disclosures and how these will be investigated. It also informs individuals of the whistleblower protections available to them. This policy is available here.
