Working with integrity

Working with integrity is one of our core values. Our Global Code of Conduct, available in several languages, sets out clear guidance to help everyone at Experian make the right decisions. We regularly review it to determine if updates are required and we will publish our next update in the coming year.

The Global Code of Conduct is supported by detailed policies on specific topics such as anti-corruption, conflicts of interest, gifts and hospitality, fraud management, complaint management, fair treatment of vulnerable consumers, product development and marketing, whistleblowing and tax.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a robust, effective and appropriate control environment to recognise where opportunities for financial crime exist and mitigate the associated risk. We establish and maintain processes and procedures to monitor, detect and prevent acts of financial crime against Experian by third parties or employees, or through the unlawful use of or access to our products, services or data. If any employees are found to have committed any financial crime, we will take appropriate disciplinary and legal action against those involved.

Our commitment to doing business responsibly includes our approach to tax affairs, as set out in our Tax Policy, which is included in our annual Tax Report. The report explains how we manage taxes and how tax fits into our broader ESG agenda, provides information on our tax governance and details our regional corporate tax contributions.

More information about our approach to Working with integrity, which includes our approaches to anti-bribery and corruption, training and compliance, respecting human rights, tackling modern slavery, and partnering with suppliers, can be found on pages 54-55 of our Annual Report.
