Ethical Marketing Policy
Ethical Marketing Policy
CONTEXT is a company with strong values. Whoever we may deal with, and wherever we may operate, we are committed to doing so lawfully, ethically and with integrity.
Wherever we do business, we comply with all relevant laws and regulations, including but not limited to, those pertaining to advertising and sponsorship. We also adhere to the principles laid out in the International Chamber of Commerce’s Code of Advertising and Marketing. The Code prescribes that all marketing communications should be legal, decent, honest, and truthful.
We are honest and decent
Our marketing team consists of ethical marketers who follow the Group’s values and pledge to be honest, decent and transparent in all communications and campaigns. We pledge never to mislead customers or suppliers, and to substantiate all claims relating to verifiable facts at the time of publication.
The principles of decency, honesty and truthfulness are strict criteria to be met for every campaign, communication and marketing activity. Our marketers proofread and are encouraged to request feedback if they are unsure about any of their content, strategy or actions.
We tell the truth about our social and environmental impact
We commit to not practicing impact-washing about our sponsorships, social and environmental activities. In other words, we do not exaggerate the impact of our ESG policy and initiatives in order to gain a marketing advantage or distract from any other outcomes of our business.
We share accurate information about the specific groups that have benefited from our ESG (stands for Environmental-Social-Governance) actions, as well as our environmental and social policies.
We celebrate diversity & inclusion
We are considerate about the language of our communications and campaigns. We honour diversity and inclusion throughout the Group, and this is also reflected in our external and internal language.
We respect human dignity and don’t discriminate against people or reproduce or exploit stereotypical images, jokes or phrases to benefit from emotional response or sympathy towards our organisation.
We are responsible and fair
Whatever the nature of the activity, medium or technology, responsibility is shared by all parties concerned, commensurate with their respective role in the process and within the limits of their respective functions.
We are fair to our competitors. Our communications do not denigrate or ridicule competitors or their products, other firms, organisations or persons. We do not make unjustifiable use of the name, logo or trademark of another firm or institution, and do not take undue advantage of the goodwill belonging to others.
We protect data and privacy
We evolve and adapt
We stay updated with changes in the law and regulations. The line that distinguishes ethical from unethical marketing practices might shift due to technological, social, or economic changes. We will continue to review our Ethical Marketing Policy to ensure that it will always be compliant.
