Each of the Group’s operational companies has an ethical management system in place and has developed an ethical charter that highlights the spirit, standards and key values of the company.
This ethical charter aims to promote respect for the universal principals of human rights and to fight against corruption and fraud. It also helps to encourage respect towards customers and ethical relationships with providers and subcontractors.
It ensures employee professionalism and exemplary market behaviour.
