Principles and Attitudes

Code of Conduct

In 2017, a Code of Conduct was drafted and incorporated into our organizational DNA. Our Code of Conduct builds upon the attitudes of Tessenderlo Group. Fundamentally, the Code of Conduct sets out how we intend to continue to fully comply with the laws and regulations in all regions where our organization is operating.

Due diligence procedures have been built into various business processes to ensure compliance with Tessenderlo Group’s Code of Conduct across all of our segments. Verification of the operation of these procedures is included in the audit program of the company’s Internal Audit Department. The Code of Conduct describes the procedure to be followed for reporting and investigating violations of the Code.

Supplier Code of Conduct

Tessenderlo Group is a diversified industrial group that focuses on agriculture, valorizing bio-residuals, energy and providing industrial solutions with a focus on water. It is a leader in most of its markets.

This Supplier Code of Conduct document lists the requirements with respect to business ethics, social, safety, health, and environmental performance, in line with Tessenderlo Group’s guiding principles.

We expect all our suppliers, subcontractors, joint venture partners and agents, to comply with these requirements. This code of conduct will be an integral part of the business contracts, and is a prerequisite for business partners to be selected to do business with our group.
