The Board has overall responsibility for compliance and ethics, instigating and approving our key policies.

These policies set a standard for all our employees and are central to our approach to being a responsible business. We have monthly health and safety performance reviews, whistleblowing and anti-bribery reports and regular training to ensure the right corporate culture and good governance practices are developed.


ESG Report 2023

Videndum has a clear purpose and strategy, and strongly believes in doing business the right way. These behaviours are well embedded within the organisation and are closely monitored by the Board. Despite the headwinds, throughout 2023, the Company further developed its Group-wide ESG programme, increasingly focusing on the end-to-end supply chain as well as direct operations. To reflect Videndum’s commitment to ESG, our third standalone ESG Report details our 2023 ESG performance, and is available below.

TCFD Report 2023 

Climate change is a complex issue; the negative impact it is having, and will continue to have on all of society, is something that Videndum and our employees continue to work hard to address. To represent our commitment to addressing climate change and improving our position as a sustainable business, we are proud to publish our third Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”) Report.

We operate an independent whistleblowing service in conjunction with NAVEX, which enables any employee or third party to confidentially report on any issues around alleged wrongdoing or other Code contraventions. This is supported by a policy on how whistleblowing reports will be investigated and the Board is expressly clear that all reports made in good faith will not result in an employee or third party being subject to recriminations or disciplinary action.
