We are especially committed worldwide to strict compliance with pertinent laws that prohibit bribery, defined as “any conduct to influence the decision-making of public officials, government authorities or an employee, agent, partner or other person in the private sector, be it directly or through agents or other intermediaries, with the purpose of securing a wrongful action or advantage.” No Ultranav employee at any level may offer, promise, authorise or give anything of value to any public official in any country, or to any third party in the private sector, in order to gain any improper business advantage of any kind.
