We are committed to a high standard of integrity and sustainability, which is expected of every employee and every supplier and in every country where we do business. We have developed and implemented a systematic approach designed to prevent, detect, and resolve any potential integrity concerns.
This goal is supported by tools and processes and a zero-tolerance policy for any violations. Our integrity program has created an environment where all our employees can be open about identifying risks, asking questions, and raising concerns.
To pursue this objective of integrity and compliance, the Board of Directors’ resolution held on 24th September 2019, Arkad S.p.A. has adopted the Organization, Management and Control Model (the “Model”) pursuant to Legislative Decree 8 June 2001, n. 231 regarding the “Rules governing the administrative liability of legal entities, companies and associations, even without legal personality” (the “Decree”).
The Model is therefore a document that constitutes a valid tool to raising awareness among all employees, collaborators and any subject involved in corporate activities within the performance of their tasks, by correct and lawful behaviors.
The corpus of documents consisting of the Model, the Code of Conduct, the Code of Conduct for Suppliers and the operating procedures, represents the set of tools that contain the principles and rules of conduct for all the recipients of the Model (employees, coworkers, top managers), and for third parties (external consultants working with or for the Company, suppliers, etc.) and who are specifically intended to prevent the recalled offenses.
Whether you detect any conduct, event or fact deemed to be not compliant with the Model, the Codes of Conduct or the corporate procedures, you may report the misconduct by sending an e-mail or an anonymous message to the Supervisory Body to the address email@example.com .

The standards addressed in the Model, in the Codes of Conduct and the operative procedures represent the core of Arkad-ABB’s culture and commitment. Compliance to these standards is essential and every employee in Arkad-ABB is responsible for upholding these principles.
All employees, customers, suppliers and third parties can report any suspected or observed violations of the law, of the Model, of these Codes of Conduct or of company policies, simply by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the above mentioned Supervisory Body’s address email@example.com.
