An Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy sets out standards of conduct that all employees are required to follow. The Group has also established Procedures for Reporting Possible Improprieties on matters of Financial Reporting, Internal Control or other matters to encourage employees of the Group - and those who deal with the Group (e.g. customers, suppliers, creditors and debtors) - to report any suspected impropriety, misconduct or malpractice within the Group. These procedures aim to provide reporting channels and guidance, while reassuring whistleblowers that they will be protected against any unfair treatment.
The Group organises periodic corporate governance seminars and training on anti-corruption measures and guidelines, as well as sound operating practices and business ethics.
During 2016, the Group was not aware of any of non-compliance with laws or regulations that have a significant impact concerning bribery, extortion, fraud and money laundering.
