Anti Bribery & Corruption Policy
One of BMA's core values is to uphold responsible and fair business practices. It is committed to promoting and maintaining the highest level of ethical standards in relation to all of its business activities.
The Modern Slavery Act of 2015 requires certain businesses to provide disclosure concerning their efforts, if any, to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. The disclosures are intended to provide clients with the ability to make better, more informed choices about the company which they support. BMA is committed to maintaining and improving systems and processes to avoid complicity in human rights violations related to our own operations and that of our supply chain.
BMA is committed to developing, implementing and managing a resilient Business Continuity policy and associate procedures as a key mechanism to ensure business as usual can continue in as consistent, co-ordinated and cost-effective manner as possible, to enable us to continue providing the expected services to clients.
BMA fully recognises it’s corporate social responsibilities and reflects these within various standards and polices to the benefit of our employees, the environment, sustainable development, our clients, third parties and associates and the communities we work within, at all times encouraging the highest standards of professionalism, respect and ethical behaviour.
BMA understands that everyone is different and have unique qualities to offer. We seek to respect and understand these differences, so we can make the most of everyone’s talents, to the benefit of individuals and the business as a whole. To this end, BMA is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities throughout its business.
BMA recognises that a commitment to Health and Safety excellence needs to involve all employees, with everyone understanding and performing their part to ensure everyone remain safe and healthy at all times.
BMA considers information security of the utmost importance, not only to protect our own information assets but also so that we remain a trusted partner to our clients. The Directors of BMA are committed to meeting all applicable requirements relating to information security, and expects all its employees to follow the information security controls set out in our Information Security Management System (ISMS), and thereby act within the spirit of this Information Security Policy.
BMA is a global IT solutions and consulting service provider, which strives to actively develop, promote and implement sustainably-focused solutions that meet the requirements of our clients, whilst at the same time assisting them to manage their impact on the natural environment.
Stress is defined as “the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed on them” (HSE), and BMA recognises that work-related stress can affect mental and physical health, and that work-related stress is a significant well-being issue.
Sustainable Development involves development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It has three pillars: economic, environmental and social impacts.
BMA is committed to the highest standards of openness, probity and accountability. An important aspect of accountability and transparency is a mechanism to enable staff and other members of BMA to voice concerns in a responsible and effective manner.

The New Storms List, first launched by the UK Met Office in Autumn 2015 as a means of improving communication and public awareness, gives names to any storms with the potential to cause an amber or red warning.
