Anti-corruption is an important area of corporate responsibility. As a member of the UN Global Compact, Polenergia Group pays special attention to the appropriate level of internal regulation of this area at the level of legal compliance and best practice regulation. Activities in the area of prevention of corruption incidents are particularly important by addressing them within the framework of the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact.

The Anti-Corruption Policy is also being updated as part of the ongoing process of revising the entire ethics system and due diligence approach within the Polenergia Group over the course of 2022.

The new Policy applies throughout the Polenergia organization and applies to all Employees.

The purpose of the Policy is to:

  • realize and complement the provisions of the Code of Ethics regarding the rejection of all forms of corruption and bribery;
  • to define the principles of corruption prevention.

The Anti-Corruption Policy informs persons covered by its scope what corruption is, what types of corrupt behavior can be distinguished, possible ways to identify, prevent, report or respond to it.

As part of the activities related to the implementation of the new Policy in 2022, training sessions were held with key people for the area in the company and online training in the area of anti-corruption for all employees.
