The shareholders – who expect our organization to maximize the value of their investment. The employees – who work with enthusiasm and pride since they feel challenged but also appreciated. The communities – in which our role is practical and positive.
Our management is determined to ensure that we are the best in our category with respect to compliance in all the markets in which we operate. Each employee is responsible to demonstrate integrity and leadership with his / her compliance to the provisions of the Code of Ethics, the Company policies and all applicable laws.
