Code of conduct and whistleblowing channel

Azkoyen, SA, as the parent company of the Azkoyen Group (hereinafter referred to as “Azkoyen” or the “Group”) and Coges S.p.A., declare that they absolutely reject any type of practice related to the commission of criminal acts, especially concerning corruption. For this reason, and in accordance with the principles established in its Code of Conduct and Compliance Model, the Group is committed to complying with all anti-corruption laws, strictly prohibiting any form of active or passive corruption at Azkoyen, without distinction of origin, destination, amount, etc., including where such illicit acts may benefit the Group.

As part of its Governance system, of which the Azkoyen Group is also an integral part, Coges S.p.A. has adopted the 231 Model for the prevention of the risk of crime.

With the adoption of the Organisational Model implemented, Coges aims primarily to establish a structured system to prevent the commission of crimes, within the scope of its business operations, considered “sensitive” and that are fully realised within the so-called risk areas, in such a way as to have a structured system of procedures and controls that reduce, ideally eliminating, the risk of committing prerequisite crimes.
