Business ethics and compliance

Code of Ethics of the Metinvest Group

The Code of Ethics was developed and introduced in the Metinvest Group in 2013 with the aim of forming the foundation for moral and ethical rules not just to be written on paper but truly to become a guidance for the conduct of all employees of the companies that are part of the Group.

This document establishes the necessary ethical rules and standards of business conduct, which are followed by the Group's employees every day; it is the basis for making day-to-day decisions in accordance with the principles of mutual respect, dignity, equality, legality.

Prevention of corruption and bribery

Bribery and corruption are contrary to the values and principles of the Metinvest Group Code of Ethics. They are also illegal, can cause reputational damage (to an individual employee and the company as a whole), lead to negative consequences – fines and other punishments, including imprisonment.

The Metinvest Group Code of Ethics prohibits to our employees any participation in any activity resulting in improper enrichment, acquisition of improper benefits, goods and rewards.

Metinvest seeks to cooperate with counterparties and business partners whose reputation is not associated with corruption and bribery.
