The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to establish the values that should guide the behaviour of all persons in the Company.
This code, approved in 2007 and amended in 2011 and 2016, is the core of the Company's ethics and compliance model and seeks to guide relations between employees; actions by the latter vis-à-vis customers, shareholders, suppliers and service providers; and relations with public and private institutions and with society in general.
ACCIONA has a Code of Conduct Committee whose mission is to oversee compliance with the Code, and an Ethics Channel by which irregular conduct in connection with the Code can be reported.
This extremely important initiative provides all employees with an effective tool for raising queries and notifying possible breaches of the Code of Conduct.
The Rules of Procedure in connection with the Code of Conduct provide rules for action by employees and the Company in the event of situations that conflict with or breach the ACCIONA Group's Code of Conduct. They also establish the necessary preventive measures to identify, assess and control risks of breach of the Code.
