As one of our 4i values, integrity is an integral part of all aspects of our business. We take measures to ensure strong global citizenship practices both internally and across our business relationships. We are committed to conducting our business ethically and in full compliance with our internal systems and the laws of the countries where we operate. And we do so with rigor around governance and ethics; supply chain transparency; environmental, health and safety regulations; and quality management. We also leverage our PPI (Practical Process Improvement) Business System – our operational discipline. PPI is a key element within all of our business operations and engages our colleagues to continuously improve productivity, the quality of our products and services, and ultimately, to build customer allegiance.
