Code of ethics
Lecta makes available to all its employees,customers, suppliers and interested parties the Lecta's Code of Ethics, which was updated in 2019.
Lecta's code of ethics represents the highestlevel instrument in the regulatory structure of the company. It reflects the ethical principles that apply to all the areas of our activity and represents a commitment to compliance with the entire legal system and the ethical values it defends.
The specific section on working conditions contained in the ethical code concerns the occupational health and safety of employees, employee relations and relationships among employees, prohibition of discrimination, prohibition of violence and sexual assault and the immediate abolition of child labor.
Lecta, in compliance with British law, also issued, in 2017, a Transparency Statement ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking had nothing to do with the development of our activity.
Lecta shares and applies the "Tenth Principle on the fight against corruption" of the United Nations Global Compact in the exercise of its activity and always in accordance with the relevant laws.
In its anti-corruption policy, Lecta expressly prohibits corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery. Lecta's Anti-Corruption Policy describes the conduct that employees and directors must avoid. It also describes the key elements that must be implemented to avoid any situation which could involve corruption.
Purchases represent one of the company's main activities given their high financial, environmental and social impact.
