ANTI-BRIBERY & ANTI-CORRUPTION POLICY
Ede’s is committed to conducting business in an ethical and honest manner and is committed to implementing and enforcing systems that ensure bribery is prevented.
Ede’s has zero-tolerance for bribery and corrupt activities. We are committed to acting professionally, fairly, and with integrity in all business dealings and relationships, wherever in the country we operate.
Ede’s will constantly uphold all laws relating to anti-bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which we operate. We are bound by the laws of the UK, including the Bribery Act 2010, with regards to our conduct both at home and abroad.
Ede’s recognises that bribery and corruption are punishable by up to ten years of imprisonment and a fine. If our company is discovered to have taken part in corrupt activities, we may be subjected to an unlimited fine, be excluded from tendering for public contracts, and face serious damage to our reputation. It is with this in mind that we commit to preventing bribery and corruption in our business and take our legal responsibilities seriously.
COMMITTED TO ETHICAL EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES
Our HR policies and procedures reflect UK employment law, and our employees are actively encouraged to immediately report any concerns to their line managers who are expected to act upon them.
We are committed to ensuring that there is zero human trafficking within our supply chains or any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
ETHICAL RECYCLING AND DISPOSAL POLICY
Our ethical recycling and disposal processes align with companies who specialise in extracting re-usable material from general waste and who share our commitment to being as environmentally focussed and morally minded whilst providing the most sustainable and cost-effective service possible.
Extracting secondary raw materials (such as metals, plastic, and wood) from general waste allows them to be put to good use and our zero to land-fill ethos ensures that every item of waste material is either re-used, re-generated or recycled in line with our environmental policy, at treatment facilities designed to handle waste in the safest and most environmentally accountable way.
ISO 14000 – We are accredited to ISO 14001:2015 which demonstrates our commitment and obligation to environmental management._
We are fully compliant with applicable laws, regulations, and environmentally oriented requirements; thereby minimizing the adverse negative effects to the environment and we strive to continually improve and enhance our procedures and policies.
This ethical approach has enabled us to build and retain long lasting relationships with our customers delivering confidence that their waste will be disposed of in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
