What is the code of conduct?

Our Group’s reputation for being an honest, fair and capable firm with which to do business is one of our most valuable assets we are determined to preserve.

The Code of Conduct is a document approved by the Board of Directors of PERFETTI VAN MELLE Group B.V. (PVM Group BV) that contains the principles and commitments undertaken by all the Companies belonging to PERFETTI VAN MELLE GROUP (Group) as a whole and by each one of its employees, both towards the Group and to third parties.

The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to state to all PVM employees, managers, board members and stakeholders of every Operating Company of the Group our commitment to adhering to ethical principles under all circumstances, and in particular to:

  • comply with the laws and regulations of each Country where the Group operates;
  • be equitable, fair and polite in relationships with fellow employees;
  • respect the interests of all stakeholders (customers, consumers, business partners, government agencies, authorities and the external community);
  • play our business role with professionalism and integrity.

The principles contained in the Code of Conduct are the foundation of our corporate policies and inspire the practices, guidelines and operating procedures adopted by the Group. Whenever more detailed clarifications are needed on how to implement the Group's values and culture in operational practices, specific guidelines will be issued to supplement those already existing.

The Code of Conduct also indicates how to report violations of the Code and the measures to be applied in the event of violations.
