The Code of Ethics
INWIT’s new Code of Ethics – approved by the Board of Directors on 09 November 2023 – is an indispensable tool to protect the Company’s values over time and to consolidate and maintain a culture of shared ethics, integrity and transparency, inspiring the conduct and behaviour of all those who work in the interest of the Company itself. The Code of Ethics is at the heart of the entire system of Corporate Governance and represents the charter of values that INWIT has voluntarily chosen to adopt and communicate as a concrete expression of the principles and passions that regulate the actions, strategies and objectives of the company and that become a point of reference for everyday work.
Observation of the Code is a duty of all Recipients, whether employees, suppliers, customers or collaborators who, in any role and regardless of the type of contractual relationship, operate in the name and on behalf of INWIT.
Principles of Self-Discipline
The Company complies with the Corporate Governance Code of Borsa Italiana. The Board of Directors on 13 may 2021 updated the Principles of self-discipline, which supplement the applicable rules with reference to the duties and operation of the Company bodies, referring for the rest to the principles and criteria of the Corporate Governance Code of Borsa Italiana.
