Our code of ethics calls on each and every person in the group, from our board of directors, to our employees and interns, to conduct business in a manner consistent with our vision. It is a strategic part of our day-to-day business activities, helping prevent irresponsible or illegal conduct, and it evolves with us as we grow.

It is under-pinned by three main pillars:

  • Ethics in business activities
  • Ethics in internal relations
  • Ethics in environmental and social matters

Earning and keeping the trust of our customers, investors and stakeholders long-term is central to everything we do. As a public company we are committed to detailed, clear and timely communication of all information relevant to our business.
