Code of Business Conduct
Through its Code of Business Conduct (“COBC”), CRH has clear guidelines in place to assist employees in putting the Group’s core ethical values integrity, honesty and respect for the law into practice in their daily duties.
CRH’s corporate culture, while having a global dimension, is firmly based on the belief that local management, with a real understanding of their business and culture, can best serve the needs of all stakeholders. This flexibility to manage and make decisions creates a commitment to the important concept that each company is both individual and part of the overall CRH Group. This flexible and autonomous business philosophy nevertheless requires employees to operate to the highest standards of transparency, honesty, integrity and responsible behaviour.
The COBC should be viewed in the context that, while striving for exceptional financial performance and growth, CRH believes that such excellence can only be achieved by ensuring that our daily business activities are carried out to the highest and most exacting standards possible.
