During 2016 Cloetta adopted a new policy on anti-bribery and -corruption. The policy is closely related to Cloetta’s Code of Conduct and together they intend to ensure compliance with applicable anti-bribery and corruption control principles.
The policy applies to all of our activities in all markets and the principles outlined in this document apply to our relationships with employees, customers, consumers, suppliers, competitors, official authorities and Non Governmental Organisations (NGO).
The policy summarizes key features of anti-bribery and corruption control principles in order to prevent bribery and corruption within Cloetta. It explains compliance procedures to be followed by all Cloetta employees, along with information about applicable reporting and record keeping, and penalties for non-compliance with the policy. It applies to Cloetta, all of its employees, and all persons engaged to perform work for Cloetta, including temporary agency personnel, contractor personnel, and non-employee agents acting on its behalf.
Cloetta’s whistleblower service that gives all Cloetta employees the opportunity to report concerns about conduct that is not in line with the company’s values or ethical principles. As a first course of action, Cloetta’s employees are encouraged to contact their manager. If an employee feels unable to openly disclose the information, Cloetta offers an opportunity to report their concerns anonymously. All reports are treated confidentially.
