Aubert & Duval has deployed a compliance program based on three main pillars to support its employees: ethics governance and its dedicated organization, regularly updated guidelines and tools, including an alert system.
The Legal, Ethics & Compliance Department is committed on a daily basis to placing ethics and compliance at the heart of our activities, by ensuring that laws, regulations and standards are respected within the company. In order to provide employees with the best possible support, an operational approach, as close as possible to those working in the field, is favored to raise awareness and train employees on often complex subjects.
The Legal, Ethics & Compliance Department relies on a dedicated network, consisting of:
- A Compliance Officer and several Ethics & Compliance ambassadors who, on each site, are responsible for raising awareness and supporting employees faced with ethical dilemmas.
Aubert & Duval and its subsidiaries make the ethics culture a central part of all employees’ activities through a training program and mandatory e-learning. A whistleblowing system also enables all stakeholders who are victims or witnesses of unethical behaviour to alert the company’s highest management bodies. All employees of Aubert & Duval, EcoTitanium, UKAD, Interforge and AD Irun must comply with all of the Compliance Program’s guidelines and mechanisms and carry out their daily activities with integrity. Any failure to comply with the legal and regulatory provisions, as well as the guidelines, may result in disciplinary action.
