Anti-Corruption Code of Ethics and Conduct
The fight against corruption has become an essential element in modernizing the economy, which is why the Le Bélier Group has created a program to identify and prevent any potential violations, such as influence-peddling and corruption.
This is the background against which we have drawn up this Code of Ethics and Conduct, to prevent and fight all forms of corruption and to assist and support you in your everyday activities.
I do request that each of you, whatever your position within the organization, whatever your job, whatever the country in which you work, will be equally committed to this code and to complying with it.
This code of conduct defines and illustrates the different types of prohibited behaviors set out the Whistleblower Procedure available to you as well as our gift and invitation policy and device on conflicts of interests. It is important that each and every one of us acts to protect the reputation and image of our company by adopting an ethical conduct. Respecting these values contributes to the positive reputation of the Group and to its performance.
Non-compliance with the measures set out in this code may have serious consequences for the Group and is therefore likely to be sanctioned by disciplinary measures.
This code represents our promise to behave in an honorable, fair and honest manner.
