Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct has been adopted to emphasise the values and principles that govern the relationship with employees, customers, business partners and other stakeholders. The Group urges its suppliers, partners, consultants and other business partners to also apply these principles.

The code of conduct includes Mekonomen Group’s position in the areas of business and accounting, counteraction of corruption, human rights, labor and environment.
