Live By Our Compass is our approach to create a winning culture by defining common ethical behaviour that applies to all our employees.
In order to achieve our ambition, we strive to maintain a high-integrity culture through a world-class compliance programme. The backbone of the programme consists of our Code of Ethics & Conduct, which guides the daily decisions made by our employees and contract workers, and reinforces our compliance culture. It covers a wide range of issues, including anti-bribery and corruption, competition law, data protection and privacy, conflicts of interest, political activities, discrimination and harassment. Further guidance is provided in corporate policies and manuals that provide additional detail and examples to support our day-to-day decisions.
