Strongly convinced that ethics should be an essential and indispensable aspect of the activity of Canali S.p.A., the company considers it appropriate to adopt and disseminate this Code of Conduct (Code of Ethics), with which the corporate bodies, management, employees and all those who contribute in any way to the activities of the Company (“Recipients”) are required to comply within the limits of their competences, functions and responsibilities.
The Company recognises the following primary values at the basis of the Code of Ethics:
- The dignity of the person and the respect for people and rules through a behaviour based on honesty, integrity, loyalty, correctness and mutual trust.
It is primarily important for Canali S.p.A. to allow through its business hundreds of people to work with dignity and satisfaction in the factories, shops and offices of the Company with
respect for and in the interest of the community in which they are inserted. All these principles must inspire all those who work for the company and in no case a behaviour in violation of these principles will be justified, even if adopted with the intention to act in the interests of the company.
The Code of Ethics is not an unchangeable document. The Company keeps it updated as a result of changes in the organisation, the context in which it operates and current regulations. All the personnel of Canali S.p.A. are required to know and comply with the contents of the Code of Ethics. This is an integral part of the contractual obligations of the personnel pursuant to Article 2104 Italian Civil Code and obligations of the directors pursuant to Article 2392 Italian Civil Code.
The personnel are obliged to observe the rules of the Code of Ethics and to immediately report any violation of the principles laid down therein to their superiors and/or to the Supervisory Body, referred to in Article 29 of this Code, appointed pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/01.
The adoption of some internal procedures expresses the Company’s commitment to prevent the behaviours sanctioned by Italian Legislative Decree no. 231 of 8 June 2001 (administrative liability of legal entities resulting from offence).
