Core Employee Policies
It’s always good to establish some ground rules. And these are upliftingly no-nonsense. Even if we do say so ourselves. MTG’s employee Code of Conduct and MTG’s anti-bribery and anti-corruption policies outline our views on leading a successful and responsible business.
Something’s not right? MTG’s Whistleblower policy outlines a blow-by-blow account of how to sound that whistle.
All forms of modern slavery, forced or child labour, exploitation and discrimination are prohibited at MTG, and since we are committed to doing business ethically and responsibly at all times we have prepared this statement in relation to the UK Modern Slavery Act.
Supplier Code of Conduct
Do the right thing and we’ll do right by you. It’s pretty simple really.
