Altair Chimica S.p.A. (hereafter the “Company”) is a company of the Esseco Group. In order to standardise the procedures and guiding principles governing business, the Company has decided to adopt the Code of Ethics of the Group, an industrial holding company that has the resources and expertise to coordinate and manage the development of subsidiary companies. The group is dedicated entirely to the creation, production and marketing of chemical products used in various industrial sectors. All the Group’s activities must be carried out, in compliance with the law, within a framework of fair competition with honesty, integrity, fairness and good faith, in compliance with the lawful interests of customers, employees, partners, commercial and financial partners and the community in which the Group is present with its activities.
All those working in the Group, without distinction or exception, are committed to complying with and enforcing these principles within their own functions and responsibilities. In no way can the conviction of acting for the benefit of the Group justify the adoption of conduct which is in contrast with these principles.
This Code must be observed by employees of the Company, who must comply with the general duties of loyalty, correctness, execution of the work contract in good faith, must refrain from performing competing activities, respect company rules and abide by the precepts of the Code, the compliance of which is also required pursuant to and for the purposes of art. 2104 of the It. Civil Code.
Each employee is required to know the Code, to actively contribute to its implementation and to report any shortcomings.
The Company’s Supervisory Board shall be responsible for the enforcement of this Code of Ethics (“Guarantor”) in collaboration with the Group’s control activities.
The Code is brought to the attention of all those with whom the Group has business relations. This code is inspired by a collaboration ideal with third parties in view of a mutual benefit of the parties, while always respecting their respective roles.
The role of supervision over the implementation of the code of ethics and the organisational model under Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001 is entrusted to Altair Chimica Spa Unipersonale’s Supervisory Board or Organismo di Vigilanza.
The Supervisory Board can be contacted through the following reporting channels:
1. “Art. 2104: Employer diligence – The employer must use the necessary diligence in his professional performance, in the best interest of the company, as well as in the higher interest of national production. Furthermore, the employee shall comply with the instruc-tions for the performance and discipline of the work as are given by the employer and the collaborators to whom he/she is subordi-nated”.
