Compliance & Ethics
Our core values – integrity, honesty and respect for the law have underpinned success of companies associated with CRH. Commitment to these values is and has always been a fundamental requirement of every CRH employee. We are committed to ensuring that we maintain the highest standards of business ethics in everything we do, with all our stakeholders, wherever we operate.
Compliance & Ethics Programme
Our Compliance & Ethics Programme helps all our employees to live up to these values. It presents practical guidelines to ensure that we follow the law, make ethical decisions and above all, abide by our guiding principle that there is never a good business reason to do the wrong thing.
Raising a Concern
As part of the Group’s “Speak Up!” policy, CRH has engaged an external service provider to administer an independent, confidential hotline service allowing employees, customers, suppliers or other external stakeholders to raise concerns they may have about unethical, inappropriate or illegal behaviour. This is a multi-lingual, 24/7 service. All concerns raised are initially assessed by the Group Compliance Manager and then passed to appropriate management for investigation.
