Ethics & Compliance

We hold ourselves to a high ethical standard that is embodied by the conduct of EMOV's employees, directors, advisors and contractors.

We conduct our day-to-day business activities in an honest and ethical manner. The EMOV team, including its employees and directors, have collective responsibility for upholding and exemplifying EMOV's commitment to integrity and the rule of law.

Code of Conduct

EMOV's employees and directors have committed to a Code of Conduct that is consistent with the company's values, reaffirms its commitment to integrity and  works in service of the company's strategy.

Compliance with Laws

Wherever EMOV does business, it acts in full compliance with local and international laws and regulations.  Where differences exist between the standard of the law or regulations and EMOV's Code of Conduct, the higher standard is applied.

EMOV works with legal, regulatory and compliance experts so that the Code of Conduct can be updated based on the latest guidance and tools.

Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy

EMOV's Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy is underpinned by policies and procedures that relate to partners and contractors, gifts & entertainment, whistleblowing, donations and sponsorships, and other matters.

EMOV and its external compliance advisors can provide an overview of relevant anti-bribery legislation, including the UK Bribery Act 2010, to any partners or contractors who require more information.

UK Bribery Act

The UK Bribery Act 2010 criminalises bribery and requires UK companies, or any foreign companies doing business in the UK, to ensure that reasonable steps are taken to prevent acts of bribery.

The criminalisation of bribery is not limited to bribery committed by a company’s own staff but also covers individuals, contractors or advisors working on a company’s behalf. Prosecution under the Bribery Act can lead to jail sentences of up to 10 years and unlimited fines.  A company's only defence against bribery being committed by a member of staff (or a contractor or advisor working on the company's behalf) is to have in place ‘Adequate Procedures’ to prevent bribery. As a requirement of the UK Bribery Act, the UK Government published its Adequate Procedures Guidance on 30 March 2011.
