Business Ethics

This document describes the purpose of the Code of Business Ethics.



The aim of the Code of Business Ethics described herein is to give recommendations on the way that the employees, directors, and members of the board (hereinafter referred to as the Employees) acting on behalf of the company Arginta Engineering, its subsidiary and associated companies (hereinafter referred to as ENG) should conduct themselves.

The recommendations given in the Code of Business Ethics shall not be treated as universal and comprehensive, since it is impossible to foresee all of the circumstances that may be faced.

Despite the above restriction, the Employees may find themselves in situations where no specific principles of conduct have been established. In such cases, it is very important that the Employees duly select and apply the recommendations given herein at their own discretion. It is also expected that in such situations, the Employees will seek advice from their line managers.

The fundamental principles of this policy are as follows: the Employees must act in an honest and ethical manner, comply with the laws, and protect the name and reputation of ENG.

The Employees holding executive positions, depending on their functions in the organisation and their respective job positions, are expected to:

  • Support and uphold a working environment that acknowledges, values and sets ethical conduct as a standard;
  • Ensure that their employees and team members understand and follow the Code, and also have all the necessary resources for this purpose;
  • Observe and continually ensure the implementation of the standards established herein within the organisation;
  • Lead the way by their own conduct and encourage others to act in the same way.
