How should the Code of conduct be applied?
In fulfilling our duties as a company and as individuals, it is a fundamental rule, that we always comply with laws and regulations. We recognize that some situations are not easy. Ethics is often about solving a conflict of principles. Of course, no document can predict or respond to any situation that might arise. So if you come across such a situation, ask yourself the following questions:
Does it comply with the code of conduct?
Is it legal?
Does it comply with our ethical principles, like integrity, respect and transparency?
How do my actions affect other people involved and can I justify my decision?
If the answer to any of these questions is "no" or if you have doubts, the golden rule is to consult with relevant people of your management and openly address the issue.
The Code of Conduct does not replace existing policies and you must continue to comply with all common standards in your workplace. This Code aims to provide the framework for these rules and standards to make them easier to understand.
