A Responsible Business

De La Rue: Helping to shape a better future by enabling participation, enhancing protection and the global implementation of best practice standards

De La Rue, is driven by its brand purpose - to enable every citizen to participate securely in the global economy – and in the delivery of this, to behave as a responsible business, actively contributing to a safer, more secure and sustainable future.

We believe businesses have a responsibility to nurture and build effective partnerships with governments, multilaterals and academia. And through active collaboration, we can build scalable and effective sustainable development solutions.

This is why, at De La Rue, we have made a long term commitment as participants of the United Nations Global Compact – a voluntary initiative to align business strategies and operations with the UN’s global principles on human rights, the environment and anti-corruption. By taking active steps in supporting the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals we are upholding an individuals’ global right to prosper securely in the future.

Working safely during Covid-19
We confirm we have complied with the UK government’s guidance on managing the risk of Covid-19 including risk assessments in all our UK sites. Our site HSE representatives have worked in consultation with union or employee representatives to achieve this. Our risk assessments ensure that we have identified preventative measures to reduce workplace risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level. We have already introduced numerous measures and continually monitor the situation. We have shared the results of these risk assessments with our employees and have displayed a notice in each site to confirm this.

Our global sites have also undertaken Covid-19 risk assessments which meet or exceed government guidance in those countries.
