CEO Statement - The rules of the game

Ethics are fundamentally about what actions we consider right and what we should do, or not do, in different situations. At Coor, the laws and regulations applicable in the countries where we operate are the obvious starting point, but within several areas, Coor has higher ambitions. When Coor does business and runs its operations we should do it in a fair and ethical manner.

In order to act in the right way, we need to understand what’s right. Therefore we’ve summarized the principles that govern Coor’s business ethics in a Code of Conduct (the “Code”). These principles give guidance in our daily decisions and duties, and works like the “rules of the game” for all Coor employees. Our suppliers must accept the same rules, and therefore we also have a Code of Conduct for suppliers.

Coor has a clear aim in terms of ethics: zero ethical breaches. For example, we do not tolerate any form of corruption, inducement, bribery, actions that limit competition, discrimination, harassment or unnecessary environmental impact.

It is important that we all understand the Code’s implications and how it should be applied. If you are unsure about any aspect of the Code, feel free to ask your first line manager or Coor’s General Counsel for advice.
