Anti-Corruption Policy and Guidelines

Sisal strives to honour a systematic reference framework for ethical behavioural principles and rules for preventing and combating corruption. It is committed to preventing and combating illegal practices in its operations and promotes a culture of ethical business as part of its core values.

In keeping with its value system and the emphasis it places on corporate governance, Sisal has decided to implement the new Anti-Corruption Management System in compliance with the international standard ISO 37001: 2016.

The UNI ISO 37001 standard is a guide to establishing and implementing procedures and controls to identify, prevent or reduce the risks of corruption which our organisation could be exposed to.

The implementation of the anti-corruption management system is a testament of Sisal S.p.A.'s integrity and transparency, and increases corporate protection by supplementing the existing management model pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/2001.

In order to uphold its Code of Ethics, Sisal has moreover implemented its Corruption Prevention Policy as further confirmation of its commitment to combating illegal conduct and fighting corruption (whether active or passive, public or private).

Sisal's Corruption Prevention Policy sets out as its main objectives: 

  • to prohibit corruption and ensure the achievement of the highest compliance with national and international regulatory standards on anti-corruption;
  • to promote and develop business ethics in business relations to protect the market, countering all forms of criminality;
  • to promote and to develop its commitment to continuously improve its corruption prevention management system;
  • to encourage reports of attempted, certain or suspected acts of corruption, by means of dedicated channels and methods.

Furthermore, third parties that collaborate with Sisal are required to have adopted similar policies and procedures, and/or implemented instructions to their directors, employees and collaborators aimed at preventing corrupt conduct, even attempted, and at promoting a culture of integrity in their own organisation and to oblige Sisal to maintain them all effectively implemented for the entire duration of the collaboration, undertaking to fully comply with the principles of the Code of Ethics and the Anti-Corruption Policy.
