Anti Bribery Management (standard ISO 37001)
Dear Business Partner,
Dear Consortium Member,
We have built our success in compliance with the principles of ethics, legality, transparency.
Operating in compliance with these principles is mandatory for us. We therefore ask the same commitment to all our stakeholders (suppliers, collaborators, business partners, consortium members, investee and associated companies).
Our business context
We are a joint stock cooperative consortium (our business name). Our consortium members (shareholders) are represented by micro and small medium enterprises, each of which represents a Subject Matter Expert. We hold minority interests in other associated companies that operate in sectors adjacent to ours.
Our mission is to provide professional services to businesses (consultancy, training, audit and business assurance). We support our customers in the delicate task of ensuring compliance of their business with mandatory and regulatory, technical, contractual and internal requirements.
Due to our business name, we are subject to auditing both by a ministerial auditor and by a statutory auditor.
We operate both in Italy and abroad. Our customers are mainly companies operating in different industries and belonging to the private sector and the public sector. Our critical suppliers are mainly professionals and companies that provide consulting, training and audit services.
We have no staff directly under our control. Internal activity is carried out by individual consortium members on the basis of agreements for the supply of professional services while the provision of services to customers is carried out by consortium members possibly supported by external professionals.
Our commitment for antibribery
With this policy we expressly prohibit any attempt at bribery by all those who work on our behalf, even if this may bring significant interest or advantage to our company. This with regard to the so-called “active bribery” (that is, by subjects that operate on our behalf towards external subjects) and with regard the so-called “passive bribery” (that is, by external subjects towards subjects that operate on our behalf).
We are committed to ensuring the full and systematic compliance of all the services provided to our customers with the mandatory, regulatory, contractual, technical requirements applicable to anti-bribery.
We have adopted an ethical code for the prevention of the offenses envisaged by Legislative Decree 231/01, including corruption offenses. This code of ethics is available on our website www.minervagroupservice.com
This policy is communicated to all our stakeholders and is available on our website www.minervagroupservice.com
Our antibribery Objectives
We are committed to pursuing information antibribery objectives in accordance with the applicable mandatory requirements. Our objectives include:
- objectives of compliance with the mandatory and regulatory requirements applicable for the anti-bribery;
- anti-bribery objectives set in relation to specific categories of business associates (customers, suppliers, business partners, collaborators, investee companies, consortium members, public officials, supervisory and control authorities).
- objectives of transparency and ethics in financial management, in commercial and operational management, in stakeholder management.
Our control objectives
In order to pursue our antibribery objectives, we plan and pursue operational control objectives for the treatment of bribery risks.
Our Antibribery Management System
In order to pursue our antibribery objectives, we have adopted an antibribery management system compliant with the ISO 37001 standard.
Our Antibribery Management System has been integrated into the more general corporate management system and has been planned in order to consider aspects of Governance and Internal Control System, Risk Management aspects (with reference to the guidelines of the ISO 31000 standard) and Compliance aspects (with reference to the guidelines of the ISO 19600 standard).
We have appointed an antibribery compliance function with responsibility and authority for the anti-bribery management system, for providing advice, information and awareness to the stakeholders for the prevention of corruption, for ensuring the compliance of the anti-bribery management system to the requirements of the ISO 37001 standard, for reporting on the performance of the anti-bribery management system to top management and the governing body. We have appointed a qualified and independent subject that directly report to top management and governing body.
We are committed to adapting and continuously improving our antibribery Management System and to make aware and train our stakeholders on its correct application.
Violations of this policy and of the Antibribery Management System imply the application of disciplinary measures, including the termination of existing contractual relationships and the forfeiture of the status of consortium member.
