 Download pdf for Signature

(Updated 8/28/2019)

WPP and its companies operate in many markets and countries throughout the world. In all instances, we respect national laws and any other laws with an international reach, such as the UK Bribery Act, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Modern Slavery Act, where relevant, and industry codes of conduct. We are committed to acting ethically in all aspects of our business and to maintaining the highest standards of honesty and integrity.

We expect and require all our business partners, including suppliers, to have the same commitment to ethical behaviour and therefore ask you to confirm your agreement with our Code of Business Conduct (in the first column) as amended where necessary for non‐WPP entities (in the second column).

We expect all our suppliers to use appropriate systems to facilitate and monitor compliance with these standards and adherence to local and applicable international laws.

We expect our suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to the principles of this code and to have an on‐going process of risk management to identify the environmental, health and safety, and labour practices and ethics risks associated with the suppliers’ operations.

Suppliers should encourage staff to report concerns without fear of threat or reprisal. Suppliers should take appropriate action as required.

Suppliers should put in place equivalent standards to this Code for their own Supply Chain.
