The Code of Conduct is an expression of who we are and how we do business at IPCO. It describes the principles that we must all understand and gives of guidance on how we are expected to behave in our daily work and in our various relationships with people in our operating environment.
The Code of Conduct has its starting point in the fundamental values expressed in the Global Compact’s corporate sustainability principles, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and other international generally accepted norms. It does not cover all situations that may arise, nor all laws, guidelines and internal rules. In certain situations, such as in countries with weak legislation or controls, the Code of Conduct’s requirements may be stricter than local customs and practice. In such cases, we shall always abide by our own principles.
