Policies and Codes of Conduct
We tackle the challenges of integrity from a management perspective based on various policies, procedures and specific tools
Our internal regulations are upheld by our Code of Ethics and further complemented by our Code of Ethics for Suppliers, Compliance Policy, Criminal Prevention Model, Anti-Corruption Policy, tax policies, Human Rights Policy and other rules and control measures that assure operational effectiveness, guarantee mitigation of the main risks in each field where the company does business and ensure operational continuity.
Operating as a company with integrity requires a strict response to and compliance with tax obligations. For that reason, we have a tax strategy in place and a Tax Risk Management and Control Policy governing the basic principles by which our fiscal conduct must be guided, as well as a series of action lines for mitigating and steering the correct oversight of tax risks.
Furthermore, this commitment to integrity involves understanding and managing not only the inherent risks but also the consideration and inclusion in the decision-making process of the potential risks that company operations may pose for the public. The Human Rights Policy gains particular relevance against this backdrop. Through its ten commitments, this policy considers all the stakeholders that could be affected by our activities and especially the most vulnerable.
