The Vesuvius code of conduct reflects our four corporate values: Courage, Ownership, Respect, and Energy. 

These core values are fundamental to our everyday behaviour at work. They drive consistent behaviour, are an expression of the common culture of the group, promote the image of the group to our external stakeholders, and underpin the commercial promise we provide to our customers.

Everyone within Vesuvius is individually accountable for upholding its requirements. Lasting business success is measured not only in our financial performance, but in the way in which we deal with our customers, business associates, employees, investors and local communities.

Prevention of slavery and human rights awareness training

Child labour and forced labour were included in the Group Safety Audit team’s scope in 2022. These inspections are carried out on site. If any breach is suspected, the VP HSE is immediately informed for further investigation. All manufacturing sites are included within the scope of these audits, with an aim to audit them once per year. 65 audits were carried out in 2022, with no breaches being identified. 48 manufacturing and R&D sites (79%) were covered by these audits. These audits, along with the feedback from the Speak Up whistleblowing process, inform the Group of potential human rights risks within its operations.

Since the launch of the Modern Slavery red flag training we have trained 100% of the targeted staff.
