For BWSC business integrity includes compliance with laws and regulations for anti-corruption, bribery and extortion. Our Code of Conduct and business integrity management follows the United Nations Global Compact’s ten principles, and we are committed to following OECD’s Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, using these as a standard for business practice.
While Denmark ranks at the top of the Corruption Perceptions Index, we recognise that BWSC operates in certain high risk jurisdictions that have different legal and cultural frameworks. BWSC does not tolerate unlawful behaviour and has a number of procedures in place to help combat the risk of corruption and bribery among stakeholders and we strive to work with clients and suppliers to understand the risks and mitigate them within parameters of local law and international standards. These procedures include our supplier evaluation procedures, the Personnel Policy, our Code of Conduct and an anti-corruption online training course for employees. BWSC also has in place a Whistle-blower system via an external provider, which allows all BWSC employees to make anonymous reporting of misconduct, fraud or other criminal activities.
