???????????????????????????????????Our governance framework

bob棋牌 www.progenywines.com By providing the foundation for our strategy and approach to leadership, our governance framework helps us fulfil our purpose.?We commit to making food safe and available, everywhere and we promise to protect what’s good: food, people and the planet. It also helps us to comply with relevant regulations and legislation, as well as guides us to behave ethically and responsibly. An Executive Leadership Team is responsible for implementing the framework, supported by a Corporate Governance Office and a network of local governance and risk officers.

Our charter of responsibility outlines the roles and responsibilities of the?Tetra Laval Board??and Tetra Pak. The framework also includes a comprehensive risk management methodology and system with related and mitigating policies, procedures and global processes for managing and responding to risks.

To secure an effective and transparent internal control environment we have implemented a new Governance Risk Compliance (GRC) system. This creates a single platform for risk management, bringing mitigating policies, procedures and detailed controls together with assurance processes, assessments and reports.


While?core values?shape our corporate culture and guide our behaviour internally and externally, our Code of Business Conduct sets out the company’s position on working conditions, discrimination, confidentiality, conflicts of interest, financial reporting, compliance, corruption, bribery, child exploitation and environmental issues.?

Corruption: zero tolerance

Anti-corruption is an important part of our corporate governance and we take a zero-tolerance approach to corruption, bribery and fraud. Corruption is unethical; it undermines the fairness of the market, distorts transaction costs, destroys an open, honest and decent society and harms economic, social and political progress. Combating corruption is an important part of building trust with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders and fostering a responsible, transparent business culture.

Awareness, understanding and compliance

All employees, at all levels of the company, are responsible for complying with the governance framework in their everyday decisions and actions. Details of the framework are available on our intranet and a mandatory eLearning programme is in place.


Anyone within or outside the company can anonymously report actual or suspected breaches of our Code of Business Conduct or any other unethical behaviour directly to either the Corporate Governance Officer or Head of Audit, without being penalised in any way. Every case of a breach of our Code of Conduct is handled individually and investigated appropriately, depending on its severity. If the incident is criminal, we report it to the relevant authority.?
