Unifying and controlling factors

Imperial consists of a number of diverse transport and mobility businesses, each with its own challenges, stakeholders and operating environments. In addition to functions controlled or initiated at group level, each business has its own sustainability initiatives, designed to address areas of importance in that business and the community in which it operates. This stems from the group’s philosophy to empower local and divisional management who are best placed to make decisions relevant to their business and industry.

However, this decentralised management approach is balanced by Imperial’s unifying and controlling factors. These outline the general principles that govern how the company conducts its business, stipulating the requirements to which all employees must adhere regarding business integrity, quality, health, safety and environmental protection, human rights, commitment to the community, employment practices and compliance with the local law.

It also provides for periodic review and audit to ensure the continued relevance of and conformance to the guidelines.
