Compliance

Legislative Decree of June 8 2001 n. 231 introduced into the Italian legal system the administrative responsibility of Entities — including corporations — for certain crimes committed by directors, managers or employees in the interest or for the benefit of the Entity itself.

The “231 Organizational Model” is a document that falls within the forms of control envisaged by Legislative Decree 231/2001 and, if properly implemented, exempts the legal entity from liability and also provides a guide for all employees and collaborators, setting out clear guidelines to prevent crimes and corruption practices.

Each of the companies belonging to Ecolab Group in Italy adopted its own “231 Organizational Model”, with the aim of building a structured system of guiding principles and operating procedures, based on sound corporate management criteria.

The task of supervising the functioning, updating and concrete application of the “231 Organizational Model” is entrusted to a Supervisory Board for 231, a body, specific for each company, composed by two independent external members and one internal member.

To contact each Supervisory Board and report any violations of the “231 Organizational Model” and of the code of conduct:

The “231 Organizational Models” are part of a broader governance policy of Ecolab Group, which is based on ethics and integrity. All employees worldwide are required to complete Ecolab’s Code of Conduct training and certify their compliance with the Code on an annual basis.
