Code of Ethics

In everything we do, we are guided by the GAC Code of Ethics. It’s more than just corporate window dressing. It is a guide for action, not just words. A true code of practice.

It covers how GAC people conduct themselves when dealing with each other, customers, suppliers and authorities. It emphasises respect for the law and respect for people. Our determination is to treat customers, suppliers and colleagues honestly, fairly and with dignity.  » View our Code of Ethics

Whistleblowing Policy

Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain in common. GAC Group has a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of modern slavery and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We seek to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business operations. » View our Modern Slavery Statement
