Our Code of Conduct

THE IMPORTANCE OF PRINCIPLES AND VALUES FOR GUIDING OUR ACTIONS


Earning, establishing and retaining trust and confidence inside and outside our business is vital. We support and use the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprise, the United Nation’s Global Compact and our own core values and our Code of Conduct to guide and direct all our decisions and every action.


Our Code of Conduct is designed to demonstrate our shared values and ethics in action, and is not intended to be exhaustive. It contains general guidance about Bong’s expectations, situations that may require particular attention and available channels of communication.

It applies to board members, management, employees, suppliers and other business partners, as well as independent consultants and temporary employees or interns.

It is complemented by our Code of Conduct for Suppliers, our Equality and Diversity Policy, rules of corporate governance and other relevant policies (Information policy, Insider trading policy etc).

The Code of Conduct is a “living” document and will be amended as required.  It was adopted by the Board of Directors on 13th December 2017 and is effective as of 1st January 2018.

HOW TO REPORT A CONCERN – WHISTLEBLOWER

 

We want all our employees and other stakeholders to feel they can freely report any concerns they might have about possible violations of our Code of Conduct. This might include, for example, suspected irregularities in accounting or financial reporting, potential conflicts of interest or illegal acts, as well as any environmental or human rights issues.

Employees can report any concerns to their own manager, or to any other senior manager. If you wish to remain anonymous your identity will not be revealed unless it is absolutely necessary in order to carry out a proper investigation.

Messages can be sent by employees and other external stakeholders by e-mail to a dedicated and confidential mailbox, codeviolation@bong.com. Only an external independent Counsel on Legal Affairs has access to this email address, and the reported concern will be handled according to a set Whistleblower procedure.
