We want to compete in markets that are free, honest and open. And we want everyone to trust that we will compete fairly.
So we always behave ethically, and support and comply with all laws that promote and protect competition whether we're working on our own, or with others.
Anti-trust laws exist to stop any attempt to restrict free and fair competition, such as price-fixing. Many countries apply these laws both inside and outside their borders, so their scope is international. It can be a criminal offence to violate these laws, involving severe penalties - including prison for individuals and heavy fines for companies.
When we work with partners, or when we partner with competitors to bid for and deliver a contract together, we need to make sure what we offer and do is ethical and legal, does not disadvantage our customer, and does not misrepresent anything to them. See the section "Working with Partners and Competitors" for more details. And ask advice if you're not sure you or someone else is doing the right thing.
We will never risk our reputation to try to gain an unfair competitive advantage.Read more
