Old Mutual’s Responsible Business philosophy is underpinned by the desire to be a purposeful organisation with a conscience. We believe that creating shared value for our investors, employees, customers and the communities we operate in, will facilitate the long-term sustainability of the Group and enhance our competiveness.
In this context, ethical behaviour is a key driver in ensuring we deal with all of our stakeholders in a responsible, fair and just manner. Our framework for ethical business conduct ensures that we are fully compliant with all the UN Global Compact principles regarding labour practices, human rights and anti-corruption. This aligns to our Group values of integrity, respect, diversity, trust and accountability.
Our Responsible Business Approach is set at a Group level and aligns with and supports the Group strategy. It is informed by an understanding of the expectations of our customers and the societies and communities we operate in, along with an awareness
of the growing environmental and social crises our planet is facing. As a financial services organisation, our Responsible Business efforts are embedded in all facets of the organisation. This includes (but not limited to) the following:
- Our Customers
- Our employees
- Our shareholders
- Our communities, lawmakers and environment
- Our suppliers
Old Mutual Limited uses the United Nations Global Compact on Sustainable Development Goals as a guide in acting as a responsible Business.
