As a result of the provisions contained in article 31 bis of the Criminal Code regarding to the figure of the Criminal Crime Prevention Plan (Compliance) VERTIX, SA prepares this Code of Ethics or Conduct (henceforth, the Code).
This is intended to highlight what are the internal rules of the Company that are considered essential or basic for its proper functioning, thus seeking to favor an ethical culture in the company in accordance with the regulations contemplated. This Code is an additional complement, never contradictory, to that already provided by the respective legal regulations in force. They must be considered as regulatory principles: the principle of good working faith, the principle of proportionality, as well as respect for laws, rights and obligations that they recognize.
The Code of Ethics or Conduct will therefore have binding character and forced compliance on all members of the Company.
In order to ensure its integrity and effective application, in certain cases, compliance may also be requested, not only from the members of the Company but also from the suppliers and contractors with whom it is related.
Failure to comply may involve the application of the relevant legal measures. It is considered as an unavoidable duty of every member of the Company to protect and defend compliance with this Code using, if necessary, the ethical mailbox or “banner”, or immediate communication to the Monitoring Committee, in cases where it is suspected or Your disobedience is known.
