Securing you, securing your reputation

Security is often the criterion by which a company’s conduct is judged and reputation forged. This is particularly the case in fragile and troubled countries. Our approach to security incorporates our commitment to human rights, the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights and other international conventions centring on corporate social responsibility.
