08 April 2014 - Aurecon's Code of Conduct and Ethics sets out the company’s commitment to working with stakeholders in all industries to promote ethical practices and procedures.
“Laying the sole responsibility for an ethically sound country in the hands of the Government is not an acceptable approach to doing business. Getting involved oneself demonstrates an active, hands-on concern that is vital to building a country’s moral fibre; addressing social wrongs and empowering people,” comments Ronnie Khoza, Aurecon's Head of Offices, South Africa.
In line with this, Aurecon has continued its stand for ethical business by becoming a member of The Ethics Institute of South Africa (EthicsSA), a non-profit, public benefit organisation founded with the vision of building an ethically responsible society. The organisation offers a wide range of ethics-related services to organisations and individuals in the public and private sectors. These services include helping organisations to assess their ethics risks and opportunities; as well as detailed advice around ethics management programmes in line with best practice in corporate governance – all aims with which Aurecon resonates.
“Aurecon interacts with and operates in many different communities worldwide and aims to strengthen its position in the market in an honest and ethical way. By becoming a member of EthicsSA, Aurecon has once again made a clear commitment to continuing to do business on the basis of fairness, honesty and integrity,” comments Albert Geldenhuys, Managing Director of Aurecon South Africa.
