Responsibly and Sustainably Serving the Interests of Our Stakeholders
At INSEE Vietnam, good corporate governance is encouraged and reflected at all organizational levels. As a subsidiary of Siam City Cement Public Company Limited, INSEE Vietnam abides by the Group Corporate Governance Policy and Code of Business Conduct alongside other governing policies of Vietnam, further strengthening our commitment to the highest standards of business integrity in all our transactions and seeking to establish global benchmarks in our measures against non-compliance.
Our Code of Business Conduct
This Code of Business Conduct serves as a guide for all employees, management, and any person who represents or performs work on behalf of INSEE Vietnam and its Group companies (INSEE Group). It outlines how you are expected to act when working for and on behalf of INSEE Group. This Code is a reference document that will assist you in understanding how to behave when confronted with challenging work situations. Our Code of Business Conduct (“Code”) shall be implemented in line with local laws and regulations. When there is a difference between local legal requirements and this Code, the highest standard will always be applied.
The Code has been developed to build a secure and sustainable future for INSEE Group, its employees, and all its stakeholders. First, it ensures that all the legal and regulatory requirements the Group operates under are known by our employees. It details INSEE Group policies and the behavior required to comply with the laws and regulations in each country in which we operate. Second, it highlights the personal responsibility that everyone must take to ensure the Code is followed and the importance of personal integrity at work, in business practice, and in society as a whole. The Code is a tool to ensure INSEE Group observes all laws and regulations. However, the crucial importance of an employee’s personal commitment to ‘Doing what is right’ is the ultimate key to success.
INSEE Vietnam adopts a zero-tolerance policy for bribery, corruption, and other forms of non-compliance for all employees across any operational level and strongly encourages employees to speak up, question and report violations of the Code of Business Conduct. Employees have been provided with a variety of tools to actively contribute to preventing incidents of non-compliance, along with clear direction on the actions that need to be taken in the event of non-compliance.
