Our Responsible Business Conduct agenda seeks to ensure Bupa demonstrates its commitment to conducting our activities in a responsible way. It also ensures consistency of approach to reporting on ESG themes, including responsible investment.
We have established a Responsible Business Conduct Workstream as part of our wider Sustainability agenda. Responsible supply chain management, including combating Modern Slavery, is the key focus with a more proactive approach to ensuring Bupa conducts our business activities in a responsible way.
The Bupa Code provides clear direction in decision-making, and our performance management, risk management, governance and audit processes underpin this. Our commitment to integrity and transparency starts with our own people. Our employees adhere to the Bupa Code and its related policies, including Conflicts of Interest and managing Financial Crime risk.
We also have ‘Speak Up,’ a global, confidential, independent whistleblowing channel to help us identify when we fall short and put things right.
We want Bupa to be a place where people can speak out if they see something happening that they believe to be wrong. Doing the right thing matters to us, it means we can look after our customers, our residents and our people in the best way possible.
We encourage our employees to talk to their manager if they see or hear something that worries them. If they feel they can’t talk to their manager, they can use our confidential Speak Up service.

Modern slavery and human trafficking
Modern slavery is the exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain. People end up trapped in modern slavery because they are vulnerable to being tricked and exploited, often as a result of poverty and exclusion.
Our Bupa Code sets out the high standards we expect of, and for our people. We are committed to combatting the real and growing problem of modern slavery and human trafficking. In accordance with the UK’s Modern Slavery Act, we publish annually our statement setting out the steps taken to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain.
