The Maire Tecnimont Group has always assigned primary importance to the fight against bribery and corruption and to the respect of ethical principles in the conduct of its business, and has consistently developed and updated the appropriate corporate governance tools (the Code of Ethics and the Organisation, Management and Control Model according to the Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001 (“Model”)). The Code of Ethics, issued by the parent company, has been adopted in its entirety by all the Group’s subsidiaries, both in Italy and abroad. However, the Model sets out the corporate activities of each Italian company which have adopted it that are potentially susceptible to the crimes defined by the Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001, in addition, it regulates those activities to ensure compliance with the law. Group’s ethical culture is also defined by its corporate standards and procedures, the delineation of different roles and responsibilities, the separation of tasks, and targeted audits. These tools underpin the daily application of the principles defined by the Code of Ethics and the Model.
The Group Code of Ethics was updated in 2019 and applies to the Board of Directors, Auditors, all employees and outside collaborators (consultants, business partners, etc.), suppliers, sub-contractors, clients and any other parties who at any level come in contact with Maire Tecnimont or act for and on its behalf. It must be adopted by all Group subsidiaries, both in Italy and abroad, to ensure that the conduct of business and the management of company operations always and everywhere is ethical and meets high standards of integrity.
The Group’s Internal Audit and Supervisory Bodies are the reference points for, respectively, the interpretation of the Code of Ethics and the Model.
