The international agency, ETHIC Intelligence, has once again certified Alstom’s Integrity Programme following an audit undertaken by the Swiss company, SGS which took place beginning of 2014. In 2011, Alstom was the first company in the CAC40* to receive this certification which confirms its constant efforts to strengthen and develop its ethics policy.
ETHIC Intelligence is a certifying body specialised in the field of ethics and compliance policies and, in particular, in matters of prevention of corruption. It also works with companies to develop and implement anti-corruption policies which comply with legal requirements and international best practices.
The renewed certification covers the entirety of Alstom’s Integrity Programme. It concludes: “upon thorough review, the ETHIC Intelligence Certification Committee ascertains that Alstom’s anti-corruption compliance system is designed and implemented in ways which correspond to international best practices”.
The documents relating to ETHIC Intelligence’s certification and Alstom’s Integrity Programme are publicly available on the Alstom internet site: http://www.alstom.com/ethics/ and on the ETHIC Intelligence internet site: http://www.ethic-intelligence.com/.
