Corporate Governance

High performance with high integrity is key to sustainable success. We believe that success in doing business goes hand-in-hand with adherence to competition law rules and acting with integrity.


Acting with integrity and competing fairly allows us to provide our customers with the best products at most favourable conditions. Fair competition also brings us to the forefront of innovation. We seek to ensure that our management and employees are well aware of the business practices to avoid and of the company’s commitment to free and fair competition.
