Legality and transparency are the founding principles of our activities
SACE operates within a governance system which defines the means and rules for managing and controlling the company. This system is founded on prevention and control arrangements represented by the Code of Ethics and by the Organisation, Management and
The Code of Ethics expresses the values and principles which must be observed by directors, statutory auditors, external auditors, managers, employees, contractors and third parties who have relationships with SACE and its subsidiaries.
The Organisation, Management and Control Model is addressed to directors and all those holding representation, administration and management positions within the company; to people bound by employment contracts and to third parties linked
by subordinate or parasubordinate employment relationships. The Model has the following purposes:
- allow SACE’s exemption from administrative liability should offenses be committed
- improve the corporate governance system
- set up a structured and consistent prevention and control system aimed at reducing the risk of offenses committed in relation to corporate activities
- spread, among all individuals working in the name and on behalf of SACE, awareness that any offences committed may incur not only personal but also corporate sanctions
- inform all those working in any capacity in the name, on behalf or in the interest of SACE that the violation of the provisions of the Model shall result in sanctions, including the possible termination of employment
- reaffirm that the company does not tolerate unlawful behaviour, since contrary to the ethical principles upon which it is based
- actively reprimand any behaviour which violates the Model, through disciplinary or contractual sanctions.
Whistleblowing: notifications of illegal conduct
Do you know about any illicit behaviour relevant to Model 231, Code of Ethics, Internal Regulations, both Corporate and Group level, Anti-Money Laundering legislation as well as TUF and MAR regulation? Now you can report it!
CDP Group makes available to all the employees - but also to all the contractors, consultants, partners, suppliers, business counterparties of CDP Group, as well as any person of interest - a platform (“whistleblowing”) to report illicit behaviours relevant to the Model 231, Code of Ethics, internal regulations, both corporate and Group level, anti-money laundering legislation as well as TUF and MAR regulation (SACE and SACE BT). People who report must be aware of the facts due to their role in the company.
In compliance with the Italian Law 179/2017 (whistleblowing) CDP Group ensures the confidentiality of the reporting person identity in order to, amongst other things, protect him/her from any retaliation and/or discrimination that may occur because of the report. It is possible to submit a report by accessing directly from the CDP corporate website: here there is the webpage that must be used to activate directly the illicit conducts report (whistleblowing) simply filling a web form.
In this way the Company cannot acquire information about the reporter identity autonomously, which is supervised by an external law firm that does not have access to the content of the report
