Corporate responsibility remains an important area of focus for Vitec. This is reflected by our employees who understand the importance of the right values and behaviours when carrying out their roles at Vitec.
It involves dealing with all our stakeholders – including customers, suppliers, shareholders, local communities in which we operate and with our own employees. The values and behaviours of our employees underpin our Business Model to ensure Vitec’s long-term success.
The Board has overall responsibility for corporate responsibility. It considers and approves our key policies, including our Code of Conduct, Environmental Policy and Health and Safety Policy.
These policies set a standard for all divisions and employees worldwide, are available on our website, and are central to our approach to corporate responsibility.
The Board has delegated the coordination of our corporate responsibility efforts to Stephen Bird and together with the Operations Executive and senior management, focuses his efforts on the areas outlined above.
The Board and Operations Executive regularly consider the Group’s reputation and measure progress against our corporate responsibility objectives. Examples include: monthly health and safety performance reviews; whistleblowing reports; and regular training of employees ensuring the right corporate culture and good governance.
