Strict adherence to all compliance policies and procedures are a must in your business. They are for us too. Around the world, our people are committed to adhering to the GAC Group’s high standards of corporate compliance to deliver the best possible service to you without compromising a thing.

Code of Ethics

In everything we do, we are guided by the GAC Code of Ethics. It’s more than just corporate window dressing. It is a guide for action, not just words. A true code of practice.

It covers how GAC people conduct themselves when dealing with each other, customers, suppliers and authorities. It emphasises respect for the law and respect for people. Our determination is to treat customers, suppliers and colleagues honestly, fairly and with dignity.  » View our Code of Ethics
