Integrity is very important and fundamental to the company.

The code of conduct provides guidelines as to how the company’s employees should conduct themselves as representatives of the company.
To implement the value of integrity all the company’s employees are signing a standard protocol where they are declaring to act in a good faith and according to the domestic law of the specific market where they are employed and to be accountable for the results of their actions.
Bribe and corruption-
The global nature of our business often involves an interaction with officials around the world. Therefore the company’s management board has decided to set a very clear guidelines’ protocol which is forbidding any kind shape or form of bribe and corruption.
