Code of Conduct

How the code applies to you

Our Code of Conduct applies to all our employees and temporary staff at all our business locations around the world.

We are committed to working only with third parties whose standards are consistent with our own. This includes joint venture and alliance partners, customers, subcontractors and suppliers.

What it means in practice

Managers are responsible for providing leadership and support for their teams to understand the requirements of this Code and how to apply them in practice. Senior managers are also responsible for providing assurance on these matters to the Board of Directors of Balfour Beatty plc.

But rules only take human beings so far. So our Code also requires you to think – to follow the spirit of our Code, not just the letter, but also to apply these principles and ask what’s right.

If in doubt, always ask.

At Balfour Beatty, that’s part of your job…

Failing to comply with our Code

The consequences of not complying with this Code can be very serious including damage to our reputation, significant fines and penalties, and even criminal liability for individuals or the company.

Any failure to comply with this Code or its supporting policies will be fully investigated and appropriate action taken. Depending on the circumstances, this may include training, discipline, or other corrective action, up to and including termination of employment.
