At Buzzi Unicem, we believe that ethics are fundamental in business management and that this entails added value for our company. This is why we have drafted the Code of Conduct, which defines the standards of integrity, correctness and transparency that Buzzi Unicem has voluntarily chosen to adopt as a commitment towards its stakeholders. The Code of Conduct also applies to relevant suppliers and contractors. Failure to comply with the criteria established by the Code may result in the termination of the contract.
