Product quality and impact

We aim to be brave, decent and imaginative in everything we do and have a longstanding commitment to high standards of product quality. We want the people who buy our books, newspapers and services to have multiple ways to access to the best education and information we can provide, and we work hard to achieve that aim. We want each ingredient used in each stage of our products and services to be in the best possible shape it can be – and that means employing the best, most creative minds as well as using the most responsibly sourced supplies available.

In Education, Pearson continues to put a lot of work into verifying the measurable impacts of our learning products, helping to improve the results – and in many cases, life chances – of millions of learners. The leader page of the Financial Times is published under the motto ‘without fear or favour’, reflecting its editorial integrity and independence in providing business people with up to the minute, reliable news from Karachi to Kansas. Penguin, home to some of the best loved brands in publishing, has its own rich history of finding innovative, challenging authors and designs to engage and stimulate our readers. We adhere to external codes like those upheld by the Press Complaints Commission, supplemented by our own internal standards, and we have our own code of conduct, whistle-blowing and detailed standards policies.
