3i does not offer, pay or accept bribes and we only work with third parties whose standards of business integrity are substantively consistent with ours.
As part of our approach as a responsible investor, we expect the businesses we invest in to operate in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and, where appropriate, work towards meeting relevant international standards where these are more stringent. This includes, in particular, upholding high standards of business integrity, avoiding corruption in all its forms and complying with applicable anti-bribery, anti-fraud and anti-money laundering laws and regulations.
3i has a very comprehensive Anti-Bribery policy and supporting policies. Any failure by a 3i employee or contractor to comply with these policies will be investigated and appropriate action taken – including disciplinary action up to dismissal or termination of contract. Each year, all 3i employees are required to complete an online anti-bribery training course.
