Compliance with the Code of Ethics and the standards required to conduct business is not an optional factor for us at Italgas, but the guiding principle of everything we do, from the management activities performed by the Board of Directors to the conduct of each individual manager and employee on any level.
Business ethics involves all Italgas’s policies and systems that lie at the basis of our rules and standards for responsibly conducting the company’s business. Italgas strongly believes that one of the fundamental components for sustainable growth is the ethical management of the company’s business.
Business ethics also comprises Italgas’s great commitment to compliance activities. Compliance includes staff training both on how the rules and codes apply to their activities and behaviour and how to tackle any critical situations that may arise, as well as on monitoring activities. Within the scope of business ethics, the fundamental document is the Italgas Code of Ethics.
Italgas gives priority to ethical considerations and its reputation over specific business needs. For Italgas, the values and principles introduced by the Code of Ethics represent fundamental tools for establishing effective corporate governance and a logical base for setting up an adequate internal control and risk management system.
