Ethics & Compliance

Integrity is one of Agility’s core values. By doing business with integrity, honoring rules of engagement, following laws, and being transparent, we build trust with our employees, customers, communities, shareholders, suppliers, and public and private partners.

Agility is a signatory of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI). Signatories of PACI are committed to having a zero-tolerance policy towards bribery and to developing and implementing anti-corruption programs.

Our Code of Business Ethics & Conduct

Our Code of Conduct sets the tone:

  1. Competition and fair selling practices

  2. Bribes, gifts and conflicts of interest

  3. Financial integrity and controls

  4. Record keeping and reporting

  5. Employee rights and working conditions

  6. Health, safety and environmental protection

  7. Government investigations, controls and sanction

All employees read and sign the Code of Conduct before beginning work at Agility.

Reporting Concerns & Grievances

We encourage all employees to promptly report any ethics violations to their supervisors, though we understand this might not always be possible. That’s why we offer anonymous and confidential reporting channels in almost every country where we operate. Every report we receive is investigated by our ethics team.

CONFIDENTIAL AND ANONYMOUS REPORTING CHANNELS

Dedicated Email

Send an email to the personal mailbox of any member of the Ethics team.

Secure Website

Enter a report on our secure website from our employee intranet.

Toll-free Hotline

Call the Agility Alert Line, a toll-free hotline operated by a 3rd party which can receive calls in 220 languages and accents.

Ethics Training

Agility’s online ethics training program began in 2006, and currently includes 11 courses offered in 6 languages. This program reaches all computer-based Agility employees. To reach our non-office staff, Agility is presently piloting in-person trainings in a classroom setting for our basic comprehensive course on the Code of Ethics. 

Needs and requirements vary across Agility’s businesses and even within business units. Our Ethics & Compliance team works with individual business managers to determine which of our courses meet the needs of which employees, and if new courses must be added. In some countries, we extend our courses to 3rd party providers to make sure our partners operate according to the same standard.

Infrastructure Investment

Strengthening logistics infrastructure and services in emerging markets is essential for an equitable world. Many of Agility’s core markets suffer with massive shortfalls in infrastructure, particularly for transport and communications, restraining economic growth. The United Nations calculates that infrastructure constraints could affect firm productivity growth by about 40%. For Agility, this is a golden opportunity to grow responsibly.

Small & Medium Enterprises

Achieving global prosperity requires inclusive supply chains, in which all businesses, regardless of size and geography, have access to affordable, high quality logistics services. Identifying and responding to the needs of SMEs in all markets is integral to Agility’s business strategy.

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Agility contributes to several SDGs across a number of our sustainability activities.
