One of the key objectives of the LOTOS Group Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy for 2012-2015 is to enhance business process security within the organisation through comprehensive management of misconduct risk under a misconduct prevention system.
In 2012, in keeping with the adopted standards of corporate social responsibility and business ethics, the Grupa LOTOS Management Board announced the Misconduct Prevention Policy, which contains a clear declaration that LOTOS will not tolerate any unethical behaviour, including corruption in any form. Grupa LOTOS has adopted a systematic approach to increasing the organisation's immunity to the risk of misconduct by its employees and external stakeholders (suppliers, customers, etc.). As the Management Board attaches great importance to ethical issues, two meaningful initiatives were undertaken in 2014. The first was to implement the Group-wide comprehensive Misconduct Risk Management Programme. The other was to sign the United Nations Global Compact's Call to Action on Anti-Corruption, a global initiative where businesses join forces to fight corruption in all its forms.
Any actual or suspected ethical violations can be reported by LOTOS Group stakeholders to persons responsible for preventing misconduct within the organisation. For this purpose, dedicated channels of communication with Grupa LOTOS' Internal Audit Office have been established.
