Ethics & Compliance / Code of Ethics & Compliance
The Code of Ethics and Compliance expresses the Group’s commitment to operate not only in accordance with the laws and regulations currently in force but also with certain principles and rules of conduct of an ethical nature.
The application of the following principles is guaranteed by the existence of procedures within the Group aimed at ensuring that its employees, internal bodies and third parties acting on its behalf, operate effectively in accordance with ethical principles.
This version of the Code has been approved by the Board of Directors of Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A. in 2015. This constitutes an official Group document and as such is binding upon all the bodies, employees, consultants, collaborators, agents and, at a more general level all third parties acting on behalf of the Group.
Code of Interdependence
As a certified B Corp company, the Chiesi Group introduced the new Chiesi "Code of Interdependence" in February 2020. This is a Suppliers Code of Conduct for strategic suppliers of the Group and forms the basis for future relationships with our suppliers.
The Code of Interdependence is the first example in the history of our company of a document created in collaboration with our strategic partners and affiliates. The key moment in the elaboration of the Code was the Vendor Day held in Parma in September 2019, whereupon Chiesi incorporated comments and ideas from the partners into the final version of the Code.
Chiesi Code of Interdependence was published on the Chiesi Group website in January 2020. It can also be found on the Chiesi Bulgaria website Code of Interdependence
Chiesi Group and its affiliates are currently distributing this document to our suppliers around the world to inform them of the publication of the Code and to raise awareness of the sustainable development goals developed therein.
Our common goal is to implement the Code at a global level and in cooperation with all our strategic suppliers.
