It is Macmillan’s policy to conduct business in an honest way, and without the use of corrupt practices or acts of bribery to obtain an unfair advantage. This is not just a cultural commitment on the part of the organisation; it is a legal requirement. Bribery and corruption harm the societies in which the acts are committed. Such behaviour undermines the economy, stunts democratic development and disorders markets. It is a moral as well as a legal issue. This policy has been adopted by the Macmillan main board. The board attaches the utmost importance to this policy and applies a ‘zero tolerance’ approach to acts of bribery and corruption.The board has conducted an independent review of Macmillan’s anti-bribery and corruption policies and procedures.

Our procedures include nominated, board level responsibility for this area, risk-based reviews of contracts and country activities, a rigorous staff training programme and the introduction of a confidential whistle-blowing mechanism.
