We have a mature and proactive governance environment at Smiths. Exacting standards, robust processes and our commitment to transparency safeguard our market positions and reputation and mean that stakeholders can have confidence and trust in our company. The ESG double materiality assessment we undertook recently underlined the criticality of governance topics and validated the focus we place on them.

We also operate in some highly regulated markets and sectors which require strict adherence to local and international industry regulations. Our Code of Business Ethics outlines the standards of behaviour to which we all commit. It is a practical guide to what ‘doing the right thing’ looks like when conducting business and relationships legally, ethically and with integrity.More Find out more
