The Generali Group Code of Conduct was approved on 14 December 2012 by the Board of Directors of Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A. and replaced the Ethical Code of the Generali Group.
The Code of Conduct applies to all Generali Group employees, including members of supervisory and management bodies. In addition, third parties (consultants, suppliers, agents, etc.) who act on behalf of the Group are required to adhere to the principles set out in the Code.
The Code lays down minimum standards for conduct, which must be complied with, and includes specific rules of conduct in relation to: The promotion of diversity and inclusion, assets and business data protection, conflicts of interest, anti-bribery and anti-corruption, financial information and insider dealing, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing and international sanctions.
The Code of Conduct has been translated into all the languages of the countries in which the Group operates.
