In an effort to continuously improve its activities at all levels and to adapt to changes in the regulatory framework, based on international best practices, the Company is developing an “Ethics and Compliance” Programme.

A central tool of this programme is the Code of Conduct, which the Company has adopted since 2018, and which was recently revised by the BoD due to changes in the regulatory environment.

This Programme also includes Policies, which specify the principles and values of the business ethics, adopted and applied by the Company.

Specifically, these Regulations and Policies are:
• The Policy against Corruption and Bribery
• the Conflict of Interest Policy;
• the Policy against Violence and Harassment at Work;

• the Anti- Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Policy;

• the Inside Information Management Regulation

The aforementioned Policies, in combination with the revised Code of Conduct, contribute to the promotion of transparency and legal certainty processes within the Company and consolidate a culture of ethics.
