This policy applies to all Minerva employees worldwide.
Our company is committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards and vigorously enforce the integrity of its business practices wherever it operates throughout the world. The company will not engage in bribery or corruption. Adherence to the clear guidelines set out in this policy will ensure that the company and its employees comply with anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws and government guidance.
The company does not take part in acts of corruption, or pay bribes or receive kickbacks either directly or indirectly.
The company prohibits its employees from engaging in acts of corruption, and from paying bribes or kickbacks to, or accepting bribes or kickbacks from, public officials and private individuals such as the personnel of companies with which the company does business.
It is the responsibility of all employees who are involved at any time in engaging the services of external consultants, suppliers or advisers to ensure that such individuals are made aware of the content of the company’s Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption policy at the outset of the relationship and on a regular basis thereafter.
The company and its employees will not make facilitation payments even if such payments are local practice or custom. The company accepts that refusal to make illicit payments may lead to commercial delays, for example, in the processing of government papers, and that there may be a commercial cost to the company attributable to this policy.
If company employees encounter a demand for a facilitation payment, or think they are likely to do so, they should report the situation to their line manager without delay. Line managers will then ensure that the Managing Director is informed at the earliest possible opportunity.
Bribing or corrupting a public official is a serious offense, can carry severe penalties and can cause significant reputational damage. This policy provides detailed guidelines on gifts and hospitality. Approval must be secured in advance in relation to gifts or benefits received from or offered to public officials, particularly the giving of anything of value to a public official. Offers of internships to government officials or employees of state-owned enterprises must be approved in advance by the Managing Director.
Company employees may not offer to, or accept from, third parties, gifts, hospitality, rewards, benefits or other incentives that could affect either party’s impartiality, influence a business decision or lead to the improper performance of an official duty. Similarly, they may not offer or accept cash donations.
