  • Not act in a manner that could discredit the Company;
  • Be loyal in all matters affecting the Company, including matters relating to customers and others with whom the Company has a commercial relationship;

Employees must report unethical behaviour to either Authorized Signing Officer or senior management or if deemed necessary, to a member of the board of directors.
