Lobbying, Political Donations and other Political Activity
The policy applies to BAE Systems plc, its wholly owned subsidiaries and their respective employees. All other companies and entities controlled by BAE Systems plc have a substantially equivalent policy applicable to their respective employees.
Lobbying activity carried out at the senior government and political level must be recorded in line with our Lobbying, Political Donations and other Political Activity Policy and reported annually to the Corporate Responsibility Committee.
Anyone engaged in lobbying activities on behalf of BAE Systems, from within or outside the Company, must:
  • Behave in accordance with our Code of Conduct and in compliance with local laws and regulations.
  • Act with honesty and integrity, and ensure the information they provide in their lobbying activities is factually correct and fairly represented.
  • Be open and transparent in their dealings with legislators and government decision-makers and declare the interests they are representing.
BAE Systems does not make corporate contributions or donations to political parties. Eligible employees in the US can choose to contribute to the BAE Systems Political Action Committee, which must operate in full compliance with US federal laws and regulations.
