Our international footprint can expose us to safety, security, health, environmental and ethical risks. Consolis takes its responsibility seriously towards its various stakeholders: employees, customers, partners, investors.
Consolis has made compliance and ethics the key elements of its business principles – by compliance, Consolis means behaviours in line with all internal company guidelines and applicable laws and fully respecting ethical principles. Our commitment to compliance and ethics requires all employees to play an active role in ensuring that we behave in an exemplary manner towards the company and in our business relationships. This means rejecting all forms of corruption, avoiding conflicts of interest, complying with competition law and other applicable laws and protecting our assets and resources.
Consolis has a Code of Conduct and policies that apply all its employees, setting out strict rules and clear governance regarding business ethics.
The Group has a zero tolerance approach to non-compliance as reflected in Consolis’ Code of Conduct and policies.
Significant resources are deployed within the Group on matters of compliance, with the assistance of the best-ranked law firms and compliance-training providers in all jurisdictions where it operates. This training includes e-learning modules on compliance-related topics (such as Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption, and European and national Competition Law), as well as physical on-site training of our local teams. To ensure full understanding of what compliance means and how we can ensure that each and every employee conducts Consolis’ daily business ethically and with integrity, our Code of Conduct is available in 15 working languages. In addition, to prevent and tackle any potential misconduct within the Group, the Group is implementing an internal alert channel hosted by a third party service provider.
The Group will not tolerate any violation of the law or of our internal guidelines and policies. We are completely committed to ensuring that business is conducted ethically, based on our values, and in compliance with all laws and regulations.
