Corporate governance

Respect, Transparency and Integrity 

Compliance

Respect, Transparency and Integrity are strongly embedded in our organization. These three core values guide the Caldic team in their daily operations while they work with colleagues, customers, principals and others. We are committed to taking the right decision and to treating everyone equally and with respect. This reflects our belief in the importance of our team, our business partners and society at large. Moreover, it encourages us, as a minimum requirement, to act in strict compliance with external laws and regulations, and well as with our own regulations and requirements. Taken in combination, they all help us create a healthy, responsible and conducive work environment for ourselves as well as valuable and sustainable relationships of trust with colleagues and other stakeholders. This commitment is implicit in our purpose, ‘Because we care’.

Compliance is an intrinsic part of integrity: we comply with all rules and regulations that are applicable to our business, and we take pride in setting high ethical standards for ourselves and the principals and other partners we work with. This ensures we protect our employees, our business, and our reputation, as well as the businesses and reputations of our customers.

Our Global Compliance Program comprises various policies, procedures and training. These are aimed at supporting strong levels of Integrity, Transparency and Respect between our employees and external stakeholders, while at the same time ensuring compliance with the law.

Our Code of Conduct outlines the ethics and values by which we engage in business activities. 

Code of Conduct

The Caldic Code of Conduct is the backbone of the Compliance Program. It is the key document that summarizes our group policies and business principles. The Code of Conduct sets out the ground rules of what we expect from our employees and outlines the ethics and values by which Caldic engages in business activities. Here you can download our Code of Conduct.

Compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct is mandatory for any agreement or contract between Caldic and our suppliers. It ensures our suppliers adhere to our values. The aim of this Code is to support business relationships and to improve social and environmental standards. We will work with our suppliers to achieve compliance.

Adherence to the law

The environment in which we operate and the regulations that are applicable to us change all the time. For this reason, we regularly review our processes to ensure we are compliant. We are committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations, be they international or domestic. We do not conduct business with suppliers and/or contractors who do not adhere to the highest standards of behavior as set out in our Supplier Code of Conduct. In addition, our suppliers and contractors will be vetted and approved in accordance with our Know Your Customer and Know Your Supplier policies.
