Our Group’s reputation for being an honest, fair and capable firm with which to do business is one of our most valuable assets we are determined to preserve.
For an effective enforcement of the Code of Conduct, the Company expects anyone who becomes aware of a case of non-compliance with the Code within the Group to report the violation.
All employees should report any violation or suspected violation to their direct manager/supervisor or, in cases when this may be ineffective or inappropriate, they should contact the Human Resources Department and/or the General Manager and/or the Managing Director of their company, or directly the Compliance Office / Officer (Compliance Office) of their Company or, in absence of it, the Compliance Officer of PVM Group BV.
When a violation report is submitted to the informant’s manager/supervisor or to the Human Resources Department or to the General Manager and/or Managing Director or to the Compliance Office, the Management of the Company involved shall immediately conduct investigations and, if necessary, apply the appropriate disciplinary measures.
The Compliance Office is a body appointed by the Board of Directors of the Operating Company and vested with initiative and control powers. The Compliance Office shall verify the reported information promptly and carefully, and, if it is found accurate, shall submit the case to the appropriate Manager/Function responsible for applying any disciplinary measure or terminating the offender’s employment contract. The Compliance Office may summon and interview the informant and any other parties involved, in consultation with the Management of the Company involved (General Manager and/or Managing Director), if appropriate.
Third parties shall address their notice of violation directly to the Compliance Office of PVM Group B.V.
Reports to the Compliance Office of PVM Group B.V. should be made in writing and sent to either of the following addresses:
The Group shall make sure that no one who reports an actual or attempted violation to the Code of Conduct is subject to any form of retaliation, illicit conditioning, harassment or discrimination at the workplace, as a consequence of his/her reporting a violation of the Code or of any internal procedure.
Any form of reprisal against persons who, in good faith, report violations of the Code of Conduct, constitutes a violation of this Code as well. Accusing other employees of a violation with the conscious knowledge that the accusation is false is also a violation of the Code of Conduct.
At Perfetti Van Melle, caring for our people is a core value. It is a commitment we take seriously.
During these challenging and unprecedented times, caring for our people – our employees,
consumers, customers and partners – becomes more important than ever. We must stay in
touch, albeit virtually, to tell one another how we’re doing, as well as what we’re doing to work
through this ever-evolving novel coronavirus.
Our global teams are working around the clock to ensure the continuity and delivery of our
products to our customers and consumers, while always remaining focused on employee safety.
As this pandemic has continued to evolve, we are constantly evaluating the situation and
adapting our processes and procedures, putting in place even more stringent practices, to
ensure the ongoing safety of our employees and our products.
As new information becomes available daily, we will continue to reassess the situation and
adjust our protocols as necessary. Please know that we are fully committed to the following:
Perfetti Van Melle has a history of innovation and a demonstrated track record for consistently
delivering high-quality products. That’s exactly what we’ll keep doing throughout the remainder
of this pandemic – and long after.
We are grateful for the trust you place in us, and for your ongoing partnership. We are also
grateful for the many people worldwide who are on the front lines – the scientists, medical
practitioners and others – fighting for everyone’s health and well-being. Please don’t hesitate to
reach out to your Perfetti Van Melle business partners with any questions you may have.
Together, we will see our way through this current situation.
