Code of Conduct & Buisness Ethics

Code of Conduct & Buisness Ethics

Introduction and purpose

Introduction and purpose

At The Cotton Group, we believe that human rights, environmental protection, a strong moral code, and consistent set of values, go together with business, and that we have a role to play in society both socially and environmentally. We strive to meet and exceed the expectations of our key stakeholders to ensure that our efforts generate concrete positive results.

The greatest reward for our efforts in terms of sustainability is to see a concrete and continued upgrade of the working conditions of our people, whether directly or indirectly engaged in our value chain as well as measurable reductions of our environmental impact.

As a cornerstone of our sustainability commitment, The Cotton Group is inspired by the UN Global Compact and its guiding principles for Corporate Responsibility on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.

As part of The Cotton Group, we are all responsible for following this Code of Conduct and Business Ethics wherever we work and whatever our role is. Our Code of Conduct and Business Ethics means more than just following the law and our policies.

It's about using our values to guide our conduct and decision-making to ensure that we always do the right thing and conduct our business in a fair, open and honest way.

Knowing our policies, applying good judgement, being honest and speaking up are just some of the ways that we can build pride in The Cotton Group and in our brands to help build a stronger, more sustainable, and lasting business.

It is the responsibility of each person to comply with these standards, and if in doubt, the employee must seek guidance from his or her manager or local HR.

If you suspect the standards of The Cotton Group or national and local laws are being violated, you should report your suspicion immediately.
Any person disclosing, in good faith, violations or suspected violations of legal requirements or The Cotton Group Code of Conduct and Business Ethics will not be subjected to retaliation or retribution.
You can call the Group office on +45 53 63 89 00 for guidance or can file a report with The Cotton Group’s Helpline via the link below.
