Our Supplier Code of Conduct outlines the expectations we have of our suppliers. We’re committed to fostering a positive work environment, so we expect our suppliers and their employees, agents and subcontractors to adhere to the same standards that we expect from our own people.

Supplier Code of Conduct


Calibre Partners (“CP”) encourages the businesses it is associated with to have a positive impact on the community. The Firm is committed to being connected to our community and good corporate citizens and is a member of a corporate volunteering programme which offers employees the chance to participate regularly (annually) in a volunteering day. From time to time some of the Partners and
employees of Calibre Partners are involved in not for profit and/or charitable trusts as Board or Trustee roles also.
Your privacy is important to us. A copy of our Privacy Policy is here: Privacy Policy – Calibre Partners.

Anti-Bribery and Corruption

  • Calibre Partners is a reporting entity in relation to some of the services it provides under the Anti- Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT).
  • CP suppliers must ensure any gifts or hospitality provided to CP staff are appropriate; and must actively work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion, bribery, corruption, and facilitation payments.
  • CP suppliers must not make any donations, political or otherwise, on CP’s behalf or in a manner that could be construed to be in connection with CP.
  • CP suppliers must ensure that the accounting of financial activity is carried out without any concealment or unlawful activity.


  • CP requires that our suppliers will allow freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining for workers and will uphold other basic employment rights for its contractors and employees.
  • CP supports indirectly paid workers employed by our suppliers to receive at least the living wage, as determined by the Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand.

Environmental Impact, Human Rights and Modern Slavery legislation

  • The Firm has measures in place to be aware of and actively support reducing its climate change impact
  • CP is committed to ethical and sustainable conduct in our operations and is familiar with the UN Guiding Principles of ‘Respect, Protect and Remedy’ for Business and Human Rights.
  • Our Firm is not currently required to publish a modern slavery statement. New Zealand legislation (not yet in force) will establish a public modern slavery register and require certain organisations to report on the actions they are taking to address exploitation risks in their operations and supply chains. This is also set out in the Firm’s Practice Manual.
  • Calibre Partners will meet the requirements of any relevant law(s).

Diversity and Inclusion

  • CP values diversity and inclusion and expects its suppliers to ensure they do not discriminate against employees, customers or members of the public based on age, ethnicity, gender, disability, religion or sexual orientation.

Conflicts of Interest

  • CP suppliers, including staff and representatives, must disclose any known or potential conflicts of interest in their relationship with CP, especially related to formal processes such as RFPs, tenders or similar.

Whistle-blower Process

  • CP expects suppliers to have a policy or process to support employees, suppliers and contractors in raising concerns of serious wrongdoing that is clearly communicated and understood by those that it applies to. Any such policy or process shall protect whistle blowers and, to the extent possible, prevent retaliation by the individual’s employer. Suppliers wishing to raise a concern about CP should contact a Partner.

A failure to meet one or more of the above principles could, at CP’s sole discretion, preclude a supplier from providing products or services to CP on an ongoing basis or eliminate a supplier from any market engagement process, subject to contractual obligations.
