In the Code of Ethics we set the values, principles and vision that guide us in our day by day activities. The document aims to ensure that all people who work with the Group, everywhere in the world, respect laws, act with integrity and participate in building a better tomorrow for the Cementir Group and the community.
The purpose of the Code is to ensure that the Group's activities are conducted in a framework of integrity, correctness and compliance with the laws in force with a view to social responsibility and environmental protection.
The Code applies to anyone in the world who acts in the name and on behalf of Cementir, including all employees and collaborators.
The Group undertakes to ensure that the principles contained in the Code are respected also by the long term business partners, as suppliers and customers.
The Code was approved by the Board of Directors of Cementir Holding N.V.
In order to monitor the continued compliance with the Code of Ethics by those employed by the Company and its subsidiaries and uphold the applicable regulations, the Board of Directors established an Ethics Committee composed of the Group General Counsel (Claudio Criscuolo) and the Group Chief Internal Audit Officer (Franco Doria). The Ethics Committee is also addressed the periodic information report on whistleblowing.
The Cementir Holding Group fully recognizes the importance of Whistleblowing legislation as an effective instrument to prevent illicit activities and allow individuals to exercise their freedom of expression as a fundamental human right.
For this reason, the Group has long since established a specific reporting mechanism through which employees, collaborators, administrators, and third parties in general can report, without fear of retaliation or intimidation, any information regarding potential violations, non-compliant or unlawful behaviors and practices in relation to applicable regulations, including European Union legislation, the Group's Code of Ethics, internal procedures, and the respective companies' Organizational Model pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001.
