CHARTER OF FUNDAMENTAL ETHICAL PRINCIPLES

The charter of fundamental ethical principles is a voluntary statement of the company that subscribes to these principles into their business practices to help create an environment of transparency, integrity, trust, for activities in and outside of the company. For more details please see the Italian version of the website.

  • COMMITMENT
    Respect for the law and the principles of integrity, transparency and anti-corruption represent the first pillar on which to found a responsible company. Publicly encouraging these ethical principles reinforces their value and their ability to influence beyond just compliance. Subscribing to this Charter of General Ethical Principles will have no value, nor inspire other business partners to emulate your position, if it is not fully internalised, shared and applied. That is why we acknowledge the importance of organising specific times and events to inform people and raise awareness, and of inducting new employees in the Charter at the moment they are hired.
  • INTEGRITY
    Moral integrity, honesty and rectitude are the principles that inspire us in our daily work activities and act as a guiding light.
  • TRANSPARENCY
    Transparency, or opening up the organisation, and the communication of data and information relevant to the community, is a fundamental principle. Since opacity and lack of clarity can be fertile ground for improper practices and behaviour, they should not, in any way, be considered appropriate.
  • ZERO TOL ERANCE FOR CORRUPTION
    We acknowledge that corruption – in any form it might take – is wrong and can have grave consequences and negative social, reputational, economic and civil effects: corruption can impoverish a nation and severely damage those companies operating within it. We therefore reject, in addition to all illegal behaviour, any act which, in any way, is counter to the principles of correctness and honesty, even if it involves negligible economic gains, such as small payments, gifts, or advantages awarded illegally with the aim of accelerating normal practice or obtaining favours.
  • CONFLICT OF INTEREST
    We strictly and rigorously avoid creating a conflict of interest but, should one be created, we will manage it with a sense of responsibility and transparency.
  • FAIRN ESS
    Fairness towards colleagues, such as business partners, competitors and institutions, is reflected in proper behaviour that respects the principles of fair competition.
  • RESPONSIBILITY
    We promote the utmost responsibility when performing any activity that might have an impact on our community and on civil society in general. Everything, it goes without saying, is to be done with the greatest respect for human rights, safety and the environment.
  • CULTUR E OF LEGALITY
    A work environment that respects the ethical principles applied, reinforces in employees the appreciation of, and support for, the company’s values.
