Code of Ethics
The code of ethics clarifies the commitments and responsibilities that should guide the company’s business and activities, requiring compliance by anyone involved in any way with Ansaldo STS.
The code of ethics is available on the company’s web site11. It is a key element of the internal control system, and compliance with it enables Ansaldo STS and the group companies to prevent certain irregularities or illegal acts prohibited by the regulations of the various countries where Ansaldo STS operates, particularly Legislative decree no. 231/01 in Italy.
The code of ethics was formally adopted for the group companies by resolution of the respective boards of directors or equivalent management bodies. It was shared with all group personnel using the same methods as those applied by the parent Ansaldo STS.
In addition, a code of ethics control body was set up within each group company to promote the implementation of the code of ethics. A special information channel for the code of ethics was also created, and can be used to report any conduct that is inconsistent with the principles of the code of ethics by sending an email. The reports are sent and managed in accordance with a group procedure.
Ansaldo STS has adhered to Global Compact, a voluntary United Nations initiative to encourage respect for human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption set out in 10 principles. Its confirmation reiterates its commitment to considering Global Compact and its main principles an integral part of the company’s strategies and culture.
