Promethean acknowledges that the manufacture, development, distribution, delivery, and use of our products and services impacts a wide range of stakeholder groups. Stakeholders may be directly involved with the company as employees, suppliers or end users of Promethean products and services, or their involvement may be indirect, as members of the worldwide communities where Promethean operates.
Promethean is committed to acting responsibly and ethically throughout its operations while ensuring that our business partners share our deeply rooted values. The Board of Directors has established a number of key policies reflecting this commitment, covering areas such as health and safety, environmental considerations, human rights, and ethical business conduct.
Our commitment to honest, ethical business practices has led to the development of Promethean’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Conduct and Promethean’s Whistle-blowing policy. Additionally, Promethean’s commitment to Human Rights and to prohibit and reject any degree of tolerance for slavery and human trafficking in connection with Promethean’s business or its supply chain around the world has led to Promethean’s Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement and Human Rights Policy. Promethean is dedicated to the development and distribution of industry-leading solutions with an unwavering focus on respecting the broader world around us which has led to Promethean’s Global Health and Safety Policy Statement.
Code of Ethics & Standards of Business Conduct
As part of our commitment to continual environmental improvement, we continuously strive within our business to prevent pollution that can have a detrimental impact on the environment and to comply with all applicable environmental, legal and other requirements.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) became law in the UK in 2007. Its primary purpose is to minimise the impact of waste electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by recycling rather than disposing in landfill.
Promethean fully endorses the environmental objectives of the WEEE Directive and all Promethean electronic products are marked with the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol to alert customers to the fact that these products must not be disposed of with general/household waste streams but separated from other waste streams and sent to approved treatment facilities for safe recycling or disposal.
