Cotecna is committed to professional excellence. As a company, it believes that its contractual and business obligations can only be fulfilled through uncompromising dedication to its clients’ requirements and by adopting the highest professional and ethical standards in all it does. This constitutes our business promise.

For this reason, Cotecna has implemented a business ethics and compliance program throughout its network of offices. At the heart of the program is the business ethics and compliance code. The code’s principles and rules apply to all Group activities, and include standards for technical and professional conduct in the following areas:

  • Integrity
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Confidentiality
  • Prevention of bribery
  • Ethical marketing and fair competition

Most importantly, we place business ethics and compliance above all commercial considerations. To ensure the effectiveness of the implementation of our code, we subject our business ethics and compliance program to an annual independent assessment conducted by the company’s external auditors.
