Corporate Responsibility

We believe that by acting as a responsible global citizen, we will not only minimize business risk but also enhance our reputation as a business partner.


Countering Bribery 


GRP is committed to achieving its business goals legitimately and we require our staff and partners to strictly obey all relevant laws.  We explicitly prohibit offering or accepting a bribe in any form for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business or to gain an improper advantage for GRP.

The prohibition applies to bribes made directly or through third parties, including attorneys, agents, consultants, advisors, suppliers, and customers.  To educate our employees on this important issue, training on avoiding bribery and corruption has been delivered to all GRP employees through our ongoing Compliance Programme.

We use an external service to help avoid doing business with bribe payers, and we dismiss any employee proven to violate the anti-bribery provisions of the Code of Conduct.  We have a procedure and due diligence reporting programme for working with agents in order to ensure that the proper compliance mechanisms are in place


Health and Safety


Health and safety are intrinsic to our operations and our value propositions. We hold ourselves accountable for safeguarding the health and safety of our employees, contractors and partners.

We continually raise awareness of safety issues among employees and provide relevant training. We set targets and objectives for safety performance and measure our progress on a continual basis. We evaluate our performance, and recognize both individual and organizational achievements.
