Code of ethics

Imperial is committed to acting with uncompromising honesty and integrity. The code of ethics provides guidance to all group and divisional employees on adhering to this commitment, while recognising that no single code can address every situation individuals are likely to encounter. This code is therefore not a substitute for employees’ responsibility and accountability to exercise good judgement and obtain guidance on appropriate business conduct.
