Fastweb has built up its reputation by adopting policies based on zero tolerance of illegal acts performed by its employees, suppliers and partners. To make the existing set of internal policies even more effective, Fastweb has decided to set up a system of rules and checks designed to prevent corruption offences.
The adoption of Anti-Corruption Guidelines is the result of a voluntary decision of Fastweb designed to enhance its reputation as an honest and transparent company in the performance of its business that has always been committed to complying with the standards set forth for companies.
The commitment to preventing any corrupt conduct by Fastweb also involves the decision to take part in international conferences and work groups, including the Business Integrity Forum set up by Transparency International, in which both listed and unlisted leading companies take part.
Fastweb has also adopted new contract clauses that will allow the termination of contracts entered into with parties that do not comply with the anti-corruption standards provided for.
To ensure compliance with the Anti-Corruption Guidelines, promoting anti-corruption measures and allowing broader centralised checking of compliance with the new policies, Fastweb has decided to appoint the Anti-Corruption Officer within the Internal Audit, Compliance and Risk Management team, who will also be responsible for holding regular training courses for all employees.
