At Halton, we focus on four good governance areas: how the value is distributed to different stakeholders, purchases from the suppliers, labor productivity, and training in anti-corruption policies and procedures. Halton applies a zero-tolerance approach to corruption, both within and outside the group.
Halton’s Code of Conduct forms the basis for all of our actions and defines how we conduct our daily business.
The Code of Conduct covers compliance with laws and decrees, prevention of corruption, fair competition, use of assets and property, and operating procedures related to personnel, human rights, and the environment, as well as all the whole of the implementation and monitoring of the Code of Conduct.
The goods and service suppliers of Halton and the representatives of the company must comply with the Code of Conduct aimed at them. Each Code of Conduct is approved by the senior management and Board of the Halton Group.
