Ethical Conduct Policy
Site Ware Direct is committed to the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour in all of their business activities, and to promoting and supporting a culture of honest and ethical behaviour, corporate compliance, and good corporate governance.
The Ethical Conduct Policy is to encourage suppliers, contractors, customers or any other party to raise any concerns and report instances of unethical, illegal, fraudulent or undesirable conduct, where there are reasonable grounds to suspect such conduct, without fear of intimidation, disadvantage or reprisal.
SWD relies on the parties that it does business with to help the company achieve its commitment to a culture of honest and ethical behaviour, corporate compliance, and good corporate governance. For SWD, the failure to report actual or suspected incidents of Unethical Conduct will be treated seriously and may adversely affect the ongoing business relationship.

dishonest, fraudulent, corrupt or illegal conducts;
unethical actions or behaviours (including bribe, facilitation payment or other kickbacks,
inappropriate gifts; falsifying documents or other unacceptable or unethical behaviour);
actions that have the potential to damage SWD property, people, or reputation or that of another party (such as unsafe work practices, environmental damage, health risks or substantial wasting of company resources); or
abuse of authority, threats, intimidation, or harassment.
