At EWS, we have always set high standards for the way we conduct business – in areas from corporate and social responsibility to sound business ethics, including compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption
EWS does not participate in any acts of bribery, extortion, fraud, deception, collusion, cartels, abuse of power, embezzlement, trading in influence, money-laundering, or any similar activity in relation to our business. We ensure full compliance with all applicable laws, statues, regulations and codes relating to anti-bribery and anti-corruption.
EWS fundamentally considers that any and all confidential and personal information disclosed to us always remains the property of the discloser. We comply with all applicable laws (including GDPR), enactments, regulations, regulatory policies, by laws, ordinances or subordinate legislations relating to the processing, privacy, and use of confidential and personal data, as applicable in the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, and additionally as issued by a relevant government and/or supervisory authority in the countries we operate in. Therefore, except where consented by the disclosing party, we at any time do not disclose to any person or firm or use any confidential information or permit any person or firm to examine and/or make copies of any documents which contain or are derived from confidential information without the prior written consent of the disclosing party.
EWS is an equal opportunity business and ensures full compliance with any and all applicable anti-discrimination laws, rules and regulations. We undertake not to harass, discriminate against or retaliate against any individual because of his or her race, national origin, sex, religion, disability, marital status or other category protected by law.
EWS runs a paper-free business. We continually seek opportunities to improve our environmental performance by proactively working towards the protection of the environment by minimising the use of paper, hazardous materials, energy and other natural resources, generation of waste, and encourage recycling and reuse of materials. We promote participation and communicate our commitment to responsible environmental management by promoting environmental responsibility among our employees; by providing the necessary training and support to enable them to implement this policy; by informing business partners of our environmental policy and encouraging them to adopt effective environmental management practices; and by soliciting input from our employees, partners, clients and third-party advisors in meeting our environmental goals.
EWS has a zero-tolerance position on violations of any and all local and international anti-human trafficking and anti-modern slavery laws. We are fully committed to ensuring modern slavery plays no part in our business or supply chains and continue to strive to achieve the highest legal, ethical, environmental and employee-related standards within our business and supply chains.
EWS does not allow any use, for publicity purposes, of any trade name or trademark or logo, of its own company or of clients, customers, partners and any third parties.
EWS treats its employees, clients, partners and all associated parties with dignity and respect and in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations around labour rights. Our work environment is flexible, free of coercion, discrimination, and harassment. We also implement disciplinary policies that would prevent any discrimination or harassment against any individual.
Social media can be a rewarding way to share business insights, life and opinions with family, friends and co-workers around the world. However, EWS understands that the use of social media also presents certain risks and carries with it certain responsibilities. We therefore continue to remind our employees that offensive posts meant to intentionally harm someone’s reputation or posts that could contribute to a hostile work environment on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion or any other status protected by law or company policy are strictly prohibited.
EWS conducts its business in a fair and fully transparent manner. We do not engage in any actions that could result in conveying false or inaccurate financial information to our clients and partners and ensure that all documentation and invoices are complete and accurate.
