At CRH, we believe ‘there is never a good business reason to do the wrong thing’. This belief sums up our culture and guides the behaviours set out in our Code of Business Conduct (CoBC).

The CoBC is underpinned by policies including Anti-Fraud & Anti-Theft; Anti-Bribery; Competition/Anti-Trust Code; Ethical Procurement; and the Supplier Code of Conduct.

We support the principles set out in the articles of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organisation’s Core Labour Principles. Our commitment is formalised through our Code of Business Conduct (CoBC). We have recently published our ‘Commitment to Human Rights: Tackling Modern Slavery Statement’.

Together, our companies purchase around €17 billion of goods and services from 148,000 suppliers every year. With such a complex supply chain, understanding the impacts of our sourcing processes and taking direct action to manage our risks is an ongoing priority.

Sustainability risks relating to areas such as health and safety, emissions, energy efficiency, climate change and local communities are covered through our Enterprise Risk Management processes and assessed on an ongoing basis.
