Company Code & Whistleblower Policy
The Wessanen Company Code has been drawn up to provide all of us employed at Wessanen with a clear set of guiding principles on integrity and ethics in business conduct.
The Code governs our business decisions and actions. It applies to both corporate actions and behaviour of individual employees when conducting Wessanen’s business. These rules formulate minimum requirements of behaviour, and are not all-encompassing.
Wessanen’s Whistleblower Policy aims to support compliance with applicable laws, integrity in financial management, a healthier and safer work environment and effective corporate governance. Wessanen wants to ensure that employees can make a report under this Policy without the risk of retaliation and with the assurance that all reports are treated confidentially and are promptly investigated. The Whistleblower Policy applies to all Wessanen operating companies, including the subsidiaries and affiliates in which Wessanen holds a majority interest.
The Company Code and Whistleblower Policy are available in the five languages that are key to Wessanen's operational performance: English, French, Dutch, German and Italian.
The Disclosure Policy governs how Wessanen, as a publicly listed company, deals with price-sensitive non-public information to ensure that all public communications of non-public price sensitive information about Wessanen are timely, factual and accurate and in compliance with applicable regulatory and legal requirements.
In line with the legal requirements the share transactions of the members of the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Royal Wessanen nv are notified to the Autoriteit Financiële Markten (AFM). This information can be consulted at www.afm.nl
