This commitment is not optional. Elecnor adheres to the principle of zero tolerance for unethical and dishonest practices and expects its employees and related parties to conduct themselves in accordance with the principles of its Code of Ethics and Compliance Policy.
Elecnor's commitment to fighting corruption and bribery is based on these principles and values and is expressly formulated in the Elecnor Code of Ethics and its Compliance Policy, which state that:
The Elecnor Group's Compliance System is the organisation's main tool for fighting corruption and bribery. As a sign of its commitment to this objective, its dedication to continuous improvement and to being a national and international standard bearer in the area of compliance, in January 2018 the Elecnor Group became the first Spanish company in its sector to be certified under the UNE-ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems standard, the foremost and most stringent international certification standard for devising management systems for compliance and fighting corruption.
Furthermore, in February 2019Elecnor's Compliance System received UNE 19601 Criminal Compliance Management System certification, the touchstone for designing and implementing systems for preventing crime and criminal risk in Spain based on the highest international standards in this area.
All Elecnor employees are required to report any irregular practices or conduct or potential crimes that they are aware of or have witnessed. Elecnor has a procedure for this eventuality that allows all its employees to confidentially communicate, in good faith and without fear of reprisals, any conduct that is not in line with Elecnor's Code of Ethics, the rules on which it is based, policies and procedures that expand on it, or with the law.
Employees in the organisation can also use this procedure to ask questions or propose improvements to existing internal control systems. Any suggestions or questions should be sent to email@example.com or by post to Apartado de Correos nº 266-48080.
