Sirius

 

Our purpose is to “empower business and unlock potential”. This includes conducting our business in an honest and ethical manner. How we behave to our employees and all our stakeholders is core to our business growth and clearly represented through our purpose, values and culture. At the centre of our ethics is how we govern and manage our Company through the Board and our Sustainability and Ethics Committee and throughout the organisation, as well as the policies we promote and live by and the relationships and transparency we maintain with our stakeholders.

 

We have a clear set of policies that are available to all our external stakeholders and promoted to all employees via the employee handbook, our monthly impact newsletter and the training and development programme. A summary of our policies follows. These policies have been actively overseen and reviewed by the Board, the Sustainability and Ethics Committee and the asset management team.

Modern Slavery Statement

Sirius is committed to identifying and tackling the potential exploitation of vulnerable workers within the Group and our supply chain. Sirius has adopted a risk-based approach and continually assesses the adequacy of the anti-slavery measures to provide assurance that we are leveraging our influence to the greatest effect. The Modern Slavery Statement was republished on 31 March 2022. We have found no instances of modern slavery within the Group or across our supply chain in the past financial year, nor over the last three years.

Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy

We uphold all laws relevant to countering bribery and corruption in all the jurisdictions in which we conduct business. We take a zero tolerance to all forms of bribery and corruption, and we are committed to maintaining proportionate, risk-based procedures designed to prevent persons associated with our business from undertaking such conduct. The Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy, training and procedure are now embedded across the Group and there have been no material cases to date.

Anti-discrimination and Diversity Policy

We value diversity in our structure, ways of working and ways of thinking. We fully recognise that diversity means a wealth of ideas, creativity, enrichment and growth. Differences in terms of origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion or ideology are met with the highest acceptance and appreciation. We expressly declare that we will not discriminate against any person on the grounds of origin, gender, religious belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity, or other physical characteristics. We want to promote diversity, prevent unequal treatment and create equal opportunities. We have a “zero tolerance policy” against discrimination and unequal treatment.

Supplier Code of Conduct

We see ourselves as a business partner with integrity, reliability and a sense of responsibility. We endeavour to make sure that our actions are held to the highest quality standards, and we expect our trade and business partners to be subject to the same standards. We believe our responsibility can only be sustainable if our business partners share and are compliant with the requirements of our guidelines. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the United Nations Global Compact (“UNGC”), the International Labour Organisation (“ILO”) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (“UDHR”).

Health and Wellbeing Policy

We are responsible for ensuring that the health of our employees does not suffer as a result of the work they are required to conduct or the working conditions they are required to work in. We are very much aware of this responsibility and take measures to preserve, protect and strengthen both the physical and mental health of our employees.

Sustainability Policy

We are committed to operating in a sustainable and economically responsible way and look to achieve that through governance, social and environmental policies. These are deeply embedded in the management of the Company and ensure the highest standards of business conduct. Our actions are shown through our sustainability framework and our continuing development of our ESG programme.

Whistleblowing Policy

We are committed to the highest standards of openness, integrity and accountability and we do everything possible to prevent and deter misconduct and violations of law within the Company. We have an “Open Door Policy” and a tailored email address to make it as easy as possible for employees as well as persons who are in contact with Sirius on all business levels to be able to report possible misconduct without being exposed to the risk of having to fear disadvantages in their professional or private life. There have been no instances of whistleblowing within the Group or across our stakeholders during this financial year, nor over the last three years.

All information above correct as of 19 April 2022.


Cyber Security Policy

Sirius prioritises cyber security and resilience with representation at Board level. We are continuously assessing our risks and working to mitigate current and emerging threats, with risk and vulnerability management life cycles integrated into our cyber practices. External supply chain risks are also carefully managed and mitigated. Internal cyber training is given to all Sirius employees, including the Sirius Senior Management Team, and tested annually.

There is a comprehensive Information Security Management System (“ISMS”) in place supported by the Company’s Information Security Policies. These policies are mapped to the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme and comply with the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (“NCSC”) guidance and best practices. Compliance with both EU and UK versions of GDPR is also constantly reviewed and assured. The last audit of cyber security was undertaken by a CREST accredited company in December 2021.

There is operational responsibility through the IT Committee, which meets regularly and reports quarterly to the Board. We have had zero instances of an information security breach during this financial year and over the last three years.
