Code of ethics

As a world leader in our field we have to set the very highest standards for the quality of the services we provide and the professional and ethical way we run our business. Our reputation and future success depend on it.

The behavior and actions of everyone of us, everyday, everywhere in the world we operate can impact this. Every individual employee in Compass Group shares a responsibility to uphold these standards and to conduct our business in a professional, safe, ethical and responsible manner. This is without exception and without compromise.

To help every employee understand their role in protecting and building our reputation we have developed the Compass Group Code of Ethics. This Code sets out the clear standards of behavior that we expect all of our people to demonstrate in dealing with colleagues and those outside the company such as customers, clients, suppliers, shareholders and other stakeholders. The principles set out in this Code are implicit in our values.

 We uphold the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory and child labor;

 We undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility;

 We encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies;

 No employee may offer or receive – or influence others to offer or receive – any money or material gift that could be construed as a bribe;
