Anti-corruption Policy

The anti corruption system

The fight against corruption is one of the main challenges of our times, from a financial, political and social viewpoint. Based on our cultural system and deeply rooted values, we have decided to expand and strengthen, where necessary, our in-house control system with an anti-corruption system, valid for all of our Italian and foreign companies and in line with international standards, which refer to ISO 37001:2016.

Between 2017 and 2018, we were one of the first companies in Italy to get an "Anti-corruption System" and an "Anti-corruption Policy" which measure the level of exposure to the risk of corruption and identify measures to prevent and reduce their occurrence.

Thanks to its alignment with the highest international standards, our anti-corruption system can be applied in the same way in Italy as well as in other countries in which the group operates (France, Germany, UK, Romania, Bulgaria and Poland).

The result and impact on business

The solution we have adopted enables us to:
  • guarantee compliance with different anti-corruption standards, with an approach common to all companies in the Group and in keeping with international standards;
  • provide stakeholders with a further guarantee of integrity, business ethics and compliance with current regulations;
  • strengthen the in-house control system, supplementing it and avoiding inefficiency and doubling of controls;
  • ensure ongoing improvement of anti-corruption compliance.
