Why this is important to SGS
GRI Content: G4-DMA
Business ethics and integrity was identified by SGS stakeholders as being a material issue for the Company, as defined in our 2016 Business Materiality Matrix. As a service-based company operating in multinational locations, there will be situations that will test our personal and professional standards. We do not engage in bribery or corruption of any form, nor do we ask intermediaries or contractors to do so on our behalf. Employees and sub-contractors must not offer anything of value to gain a business advantage, or request or accept bribes or other improper advantages. Facilitation payments are not prohibited but are granted only if refusing them could jeopardize employee safety or SGS business.
Integrity covers our organizational and individual professional conduct and our respect for and behavior toward others. It also covers the conduct or misconduct of individuals and organizations acting on behalf of, or representing SGS that might pose a threat to SGS assets, including our brand, our people, our physical assets and our intellectual property.
