Approach and ethics
The board of Spur Corporation subscribes to the philosophy of responsible leadership and strives to ensure that the Company’s interaction with its stakeholders, including its employees, customers, franchisees, suppliers and the communities is based on integrity, fairness, consistency, dignity and respect.
Spur Corporation adopts a code of conduct and ethics which requires all employees of the Company to behave ethically and honestly at all times, putting the interests of the Company above their own personal interests. Suppliers are required to ensure a sustainable and ethical supply of goods and services to the Company and subscribe to the ethical sourcing guidelines required by the Company.
The code is enforced by the social, ethics and sustainability committee, which also includes sustainability matters.
In addition, the company has a strict conflict of interest policy governing gifts and prohibiting kick-backs and bribes. The policy restricts employee relationships with suppliers, governs the use of company resources for non-company purposes and limits the extent of other business interests undertaken by employees.
