The code of ethics: our point of reference
Our mission and our corporate values converge in our Code of Ethics, a tool that is the reference point for all the people who work with us. Our Code of Ethics, adopted in 2007 by all our subsidiaries, is the strategic horizon upon which we can focus our actions.
What's our objective?
To encourage positive behaviours that can meet the needs of our stakeholders and, at the same time, strengthen our reputation.
As required by the Qualification System, since 2006 we have shared our Code of Ethics with all our suppliers: in fact, the contracts drafted by the Group' companies include termination clauses in the event of failure to comply with its principles. The Code has now reached its fifth edition and was updated in December 2019 thanks to the valuable involvement and contribution of all Hera Group employees.
