Good Governance

When carrying out business, the Clarke, Modet & Cº Group employs best international practices and standards of good governance and ethics defined in its codes of conduct, which are the basis supporting our employees, directors and administrators in order to tackle present and future challenges.

Ethisc code

In 2002 we set out on the path to implement the “Management Rules and Good Governance”.

Today, all the Group’s companies have their own Ethics Code based on the corporate model, which defines the values, commitments and responsibilities we have fostered. Our Corporate Ethics Code.

The principles of our Ethics Code are not only applicable to internal conduct, but also to our relationships with all our groups of interest: clients, suppliers, competitors (“winning the right way”), allies and Public Administration departments.

Shared ethics standards

Implementation of these ethics standards throughout the Group is carried out through their:

Ethics code

Prevention of Criminal Risks Organisational and Management Model

Internal regulations: policies and procedures

Control and monitoring system

Internal regulations

The internal regulations define the principles of our business activity based on responsible, ethical behaviour, and on the Ten Principles of the Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

Some of our policies are:

Prevention of Criminal Risks Organisational and Management Model

The Clarke, Modet & Cº Group employs zero tolerance concerning the committing of crimes and violations of ethical standards. Each company has a structured, organisational system within which control activities are implemented in order to prevent and detect any kind of activity that violates the Criminal Code, applicable legislation and business ethics.

Prevention of corruption and bribery regulations

Clarke, Modet & Cº Group strictly forbids any conduct related to corruption, offering or accepting bribes and any other similar action, and consequently basic measures have been established to prevent this type of conduct.
