We believe that corruption and breaching competition and antitrust laws have considerable negative impact on sustainable economic and social development. For businesses, corruption and unfair competition slow down growth, impede long-term investment, distort development priorities and pose serious legal and reputational risks.
As a global company, we feel a responsibility for undertaking robust measures to address all forms of corruption and breaching competition and antitrust laws. We introduce these practices both to protect our reputation and to contribute to sustainable development of economies and civil societies in the countries we operate in.
