In the world around us, compliance cannot simply be summarized as doing things well. It is a question of operational excellence, company's success, and risks reduction.
Our industry is exposed to two major risks: risks related to the safety of people and property and risks related to Compliance. The entire company is exposed to these risks.
BOURBON is committed to conducting its business with an emphasis on transparency, ethics, and responsibility, complying with the strictest laws and regulations.
The foundation of our Compliance Policy falls under the company's Code of Conduct.
Defined according to the highest international standards, applicable in all countries, at all sites, the Code of Conduct applies to all employees, on land and at sea, and anyone working on behalf of BOURBON: contractors, temps, etc. It also applies to business partners and suppliers.
BOURBON reserves the right, for example, to terminate business relations with companies that don't respect its compliance and ethics rules.
"Compliance is everyone’s business. The compliance program defined and implemented by BOURBON must be known and understood, not only by all employees on land and at sea, but also by all of our partners and suppliers."Christian LefèvreChief Executive Officer of BOURBON
Creating a culture of compliance
To make sure that Compliance is an ever more integral part of our corporate culture, and to ensure proper application of the rules, an internal communication campaign has been deployed, on a worldwide scale. The theme of the campaign: "Compliance, No Compromise" clearly demonstrates the group's ambition.
The BOURBON Code of Conduct is published in 4 languages and is distributed to BOURBON employees and partners.
