Our Code of Ethics and Conduct (6.42 MB) starts with our purpose and sets out the behaviours expected of everyone at IAG. This instills trust and creates confidence that we will deliver the best outcomes and value for our stakeholders. Our people should use our Code to help them do the right thing and to speak up when something is not right. It is also designed to help all of us manage risks and comply with the laws and regulations that apply to us. Our Code is supported by policies, standards and procedures. Key components of our code are:
- We manage risks and comply with laws
- We make our customers’ worlds safer
- We make our communities safer
- We make our workplace safer
- We act with honesty and integrity
Reporting ethical concerns
IAG has a number of mechanisms in place to allow our people to report ethical concerns, and these are set out in our Code of Ethics & Conduct.
All concerns will be taken seriously and addressed in a thorough and professional manner. When potential misconduct is reported, we will investigate and take appropriate action.
IAG will not tolerate retaliation in any form against people who, in good faith, report suspected ethical or legal misconduct or policy violations.
At IAG, we strongly believe that family and domestic violence is never acceptable. We believe in doing the right thing by our customers, respecting who they are and their individual circumstances. This Policy sets out how IAG supports our customers who are affected by family and domestic violence. We are committed to working with our stakeholders to contribute to a domestic violence-free future, reduce the risk of harm and to help keep our customers safe.
The Group Continuous Disclosure Policy outlines IAG’s compliance mechanisms with the continuous disclosure requirements of the ASX Listing Rules, as well as relevant corporations and securities laws.
IAG’s Group Whistleblower Policy sets out the rights and responsibilities of people involved in a whistleblowing report or investigation. It is important because IAG is committed to a culture where people feel free to speak up if they see something that isn’t right. It supports IAG’s purpose and strategy by encouraging people to do the right thing to make the world a safer place.
The company's security trading policy reinforces the responsibility of all directors, employees and contractors of the need to exercise care when in possession of inside information and sets out a protocol for dealing in IAG securities by designated persons. The Security Trading Policy was updated in November 2019 in accordance with Listing Rule 12.10.
IAG’s diversity policy captures our commitment to creating a workforce and culture where we respect and value the different experiences of our people, and harness the opportunity and business benefits that diverse ideas and perspectives bring to our organisation and stakeholders.
At IAG, we're concentrating on improving equity, accessibility and flexibility in our organisation. We believe that improvement in these areas supports our workforce sustainability and builds competitive advantage by leveraging thinking and aligning more closely with our customer base.
This Policy outlines IAG’s commitments to responsible investment and is important because we believe in being a responsible and ethical business. We also believe that successful investing requires consideration of sustainable business practices, as well as traditional financial risk and return assessments. This Policy supports IAG’s purpose and strategy by managing IAG’s impact and performance on responsible investment issues.
This Framework outlines IAG’s commitments to managing sustainability and social and environmental risks and opportunities for our business. It is important because IAG believes in a shared value approach – where IAG seeks to create commercial value alongside positive societal outcomes. This Framework supports IAG’s strategy and purpose, to make your world a safer place, while growing and maintaining the trust that enables IAG to succeed.
