Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery Compliance
Huawei has a zero-tolerance policy towards corruption and bribery. In every country where we operate, we conduct all business under a legal framework that supports fair competition and opposes bribery and corruption. We place our obligation to fight bribery and corruption above our own commercial interests, and we are working to ensure that our business is conducted in a fair and transparent manner.
- Our anti-bribery compliance (ABC) management is designed specifically for our diversified business portfolio, and we continuously develop the ABC management system and capabilities at both the group and subsidiary levels. We constantly identify and monitor risks, drive the optimization of relevant business rules and processes, and monitor their implementation.
- Huawei works hard to create a culture of integrity and enhance its compliance capabilities.
Internally, we embed compliance requirements into business processes, ensure all employee conduct is above board, and raise employees' compliance awareness by requiring them to study and comply with Huawei's BCGs and anti-corruption policies. On top of this, we provide general training for all employees and targeted training for staff in key process positions, and run campaigns that help the compliance team hone their expertise. The training content is distributed in many ways to facilitate policy understanding, from videos and forums to dedicated online training channels.
Externally, we carefully manage our relationships with third parties to ensure compliance. We continuously communicate with stakeholders (e.g., industry peers, consultants, partners, and NGOs) about compliance to clarify our position and views on anti-bribery and anti-corruption. Such communication ensures stakeholders understand our compliance management policies. All partners of Huawei – whether they are directly providing services and fulfilling their contractual obligations to Huawei, or providing services and fulfilling their contractual obligations to Huawei customers or other third parties on behalf of Huawei – are required to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, industry ethical standards, and Huawei's Anti-corruption Policy for Partners, Supplier Social Responsibility Code of Conduct, Code of Conduct for Partners, and Honesty and Integrity Commitment. The combination of these efforts allows us to control ABC risks across the company.
- We have established complaint channels through which employees and other parties can report violations. When Huawei receives a complaint, we launch an investigation and protect the person lodging the complaint from any form of threat or retaliation by keeping their identity secret.
