CODE OF ETHICS FABBRICA D’ARMI PIETRO BERETTA S.p.A
The company Fabbrica d'Armi Pietro Beretta S.p.A. (hereinafter also referred to as the "Company") inspires its activities to the respect of the laws and regulations in force, as well as to the observance of the principles and rules of conduct expressed in this Code of Ethics (hereinafter also referred to as the "Code").
The Code of Ethics represents the enunciation of the values, as well as the rights, duties, and responsibilities of the Company with respect to all subjects with which it enters into relations for the realisation of its corporate purpose.
It contains the general principles that must inspire the Company's actions, representing its standard of reference, as well as the rules of conduct that guide the behaviour and activities of those who operate within the Company, be they executives, employees, external collaborators, and agents, in the exercise of the Company's business, without prejudice to the provisions of the law.
This Code translates the fundamentals of the Company's shared culture, which contribute to ensuring the good name and reliability both in internal perception and in relations with economic interlocutors and, in this regard, an adequate training programme and constant awareness of the issues pertaining to the Code of Ethics is ensured.
It is the Company's conviction that ethics in the conduct of business is also a necessary condition for its success.
The Code is an essential element of the organisation, management and control model that was adopted by the Company in accordance with Legislative Decree no. 231/2001, insofar as the Code integrates such model under the aspect of the expression and communication of those values and behaviour regulations that are considered imperative by the Company.
The Company undertakes to bring the Code of Ethics to the knowledge of all addressees, both internal and external to the Company, activating the appropriate communication channels.
The Company also undertakes to ensure that the contents of the Code of Ethics are fully and effectively applied in the Company's activities.
All those who work in (or for) the Company, without distinction or exception, are committed to observing and having observed these principles within the scope of their functions and responsibilities. In no way may the conviction of acting for the benefit of the Company justify the adoption of conduct in conflict with these principles.
An essential requirement of any profitable relationship with the Company is, therefore, compliance by all addressees with the principles and provisions contained in this Code.
The duty of ensuring that the Code of Ethics is observed, diffusing its ethical principles and values, and clarifying any doubts in its interpretation, lies with the Supervisory Board which was established by the Company in accordance with Legislative Decree 231/2001.
