Working ethically

We are committed to being transparent in our transactions with our customers, our stakeholders and our suppliers. We insist on integrity, honesty and fairness in all aspects of our business and we expect our employees and contractors to be just as diligent.

Working together ethically

We have developed a Business Ethics Policy which sets out the principles that govern how AWE conducts its business. We also have a Code of Ethics which sets out AWE’s responsibilities to its stakeholders and describes how AWE expects its employees to behave in respect to the company’s values as well as the relevant legislation and regulation that controls the operations on our sites.

At AWE, striving to achieve the highest standards of ethical conduct in all aspects of our business is really important to us. We want to ensure that every aspect of what we do is done in an ethical manner and in alignment with our values.

We ensure that all of our employees undertake mandatory training and we expect our suppliers to read and acknowledge our Ethics Policy.

A shared focus on sustainability

Maintaining a sustainable business is a key focus for us. That’s why we’re committed to embedding sustainable development throughout all our processes and activities. Procurement plays a big part in this so it’s essential that it’s carried out in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
