Integrity starts with us and is equally expected from our business partners. We comply with applicable legislation that affect our operations and follow high ethical standards. We expect the same from anyone doing business with us. This includes complying with applicable trade embargoes, sanctions and customs import and export regulations.
To meet these demands, and to mitigate the risk of becoming involved in illegal activities or negative publicity, we need to know who we trade with. This includes our customers, agents, suppliers and other business partners. All business partners must be selected with care. Special attention needs to be paid when engaging new or continuing business with existing business partners in countries subject to trade sanctions or with high perceived corruption level.
