- Gifts, invitations and travel
Gifts, invitations and travel gifts can influence your freedom of judgement in terms of business relationships and also the judgement of your partners.
The rule is not to offer anything to our employees in a personal capacity and for our employees not to accept anything.
- Conflicts of interest
We must be particularly vigilant so as to prevent or avoid any conflict of interest between our personal interests and the interests of ADEO. We must always act in the interest of ADEO only, so that neither the reputation of ADEO, nor any of its colleagues and employees is harmed.
- Facilitation payments
Facilitation payments, meaning any sum of money or benefit in kind, such as a gift, even modest, paid as a personal benefit to civil servants or employees in the private or public sectors in order to ensure the implementation or acceleration of routine acts (transition through customs, buildings permits, etc.) are prohibited.
- Non-discrimination and non-harassment
The respect due to each employee at his/her place of work is a key value of ADEO. Therefore, any form of harassment is strictly prohibited. Likewise, any discrimination, notably based on origin, sex, disablement, family situation, pregnancy, state of health, sexual orientation, age, political and philosophical opinions, trade-union activities, or the belonging or non-belonging, real or assumed, to an ethnic group, nation or religion, is prohibited.
ADEO fully adheres to international laws and agreements that combat these behaviours. Our collaborators come from all walks of life and ADEO considers diversity to be one of its greatest strengths.
Our decisions on recruitment, employment, training, remuneration, benefits and assignment of missions and promotions of Collaborators are based on objective foundations such as qualifications, function, experience and performance. .
- Relations with suppliers and intermediaries
All first-rate suppliers as well as all intermediaries will have to follow a process enabling ADEO to do a background check and to confirm that they do not appear on any international economic sanction lists and Adeo can be sure of their integrity.
- Accounting control procedures
ADEO puts into place accounting controls, internal or external audits to ensure that books, records and accounts are not used to hide the facts of corruption and / or trading in influence.
- Respect International Sanctions
ADEO is subject to compliance with applicable laws and international regulations on the control of its imports and exports. ADEO oversees the legality of its commercial exchanges and also ensures that its activities are carried out in full compliance with the economic and financial sanctions regimes imposed by the USA, the United Nations, the European Union and France.
ADEO and its companies undertake to act in a way that is more respectful of the environment, including all players concerned, from the initial design of products and packaging and during their entire life cycle, relating to several preservation issues: water, the air, climate change, soil, noise, biodiversity, raw materials and energy.
