Code of Ethics: commitments and responsibilities
The Code of Ethics is one of our corporate social responsibility instruments, and serves to implement good behaviour practices. It is also a benchmark and guide for those who work, collaborate or interact with us. Knowing our code of ethics is a necessary condition to collaborate with us, in every form.
We have followed the Organisation, management and control model pursuant to Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001 since 2011, to which we added the ethical commitment document in 2017.
The document defines the set of values that the company recognises, accepts and shares, and the set of responsibilities that it assumes internally and externally.
The provisions apply to directors, employees and all those who establish relationships with the CAP Group, as everyone must contribute to the company's ethical management. Finally, the code contains the ethical and moral principles on which the company bases its work and its daily activities, standard rules of conduct, control mechanisms and the penalties envisaged.
Our commitment to legality
Legality and transparency are essential values for us in the CAP Group, especially from the perspective of sustainability and corporate responsibility.
We are a public company that invests in the territory every day, and we consider it essential to carry out all processes and decisions with the utmost transparency and with a total guarantee of legality for all citizens, who are also our partners.
Choices such as the adoption of the Organisation and management model, the integration of the anti-corruption plan into company procedures, the signing of a legality protocol with the prefecture and having obtained a legality rating of three stars, represent successes but also a strong signal to the market: you can, and indeed must, be a public company and simultaneously represent the industrial sector benchmark for know-how and compliance with the law.
A real ‘blue sticker’ of legality assigned by the Competition and Market Authority to the CAP Group, confirming its maximum score of three stars.
This is a recognition for virtuous companies in terms of the law and transparency, in line with Antitrust Law and with the collaboration of the Anti-Corruption Authority. Few companies can boast three stars, and we are proud to be one of them.
Between the requirements to be met and standards to be maintained, obtaining the three stars is the final achievement of a long, hard road. The main parameters are:
- compliance with the Legality Protocol signed by the Ministry of the Interior and Confindustria;
- the use of payment traceability systems even for amounts lower than those established by law;
- the adoption of processes to guarantee forms of Corporate Social Responsibility;
- the introduction of organisational models for preventing and combating corruption in the company.
The protocol provides for the use of a special IT platform, created by the CAP Group, intended to collect all the information relating to its worksites and the entire supply chain of the companies involved.
This platform can be accessed by Prefecture offices to carry out legal checks. This is an innovative tool which, by allowing preventive screening, significantly facilitates Police Forces’ access to worksites.
