To foster the ethical culture in our company, we have established a Compliance and Ethics Programme focusing on creation of awareness, supporting our business in conducting investigations, mitigation steps and prevention actions and covering the following topics:

We do not accept bribes, kickbacks or any other kind of improper payments. We keep accurate books and records to honestly describe payments.

Competition Law

We do not enter into any form of agreement or understanding with competitors to fix prices or otherwise restrict free competition.

We treat everyone with respect and will not tolerate unfair treatment, harassment, abuse or retaliation within the workplace.

We comply with all trade laws of all countries in which we operate including sanction, customs, import and export control and laws that apply to the cross-border trade of our products and services.
