Ethical principles and reference values
The binding principle of the Company is the compliance with the laws and regulations in force in all countries in which it operates. Under no circumstances will SICIM justify or tolerate any conduct that is in breach of such laws, even when this is pursued in its own interests.
This undertaking requires that also the parties with which the Company maintains relations, for any purpose whatsoever, act towards it using rules and in a manner that are inspired by the same values.
Honesty represents the fundamental principle for all SICIM’s activities, and constitutes an essential value of the management of its organisation. Relations with Recipients, at all levels, must be based on criteria of correctness and responsible behaviour, collaboration, fairness and mutual respect.

Safety, health and working conditions
The respect of personal physical integrity and well-being is one of the Company’s ethical values. This applies to employees, collaborators, subcontractors, suppliers, customers, third parties and members of the public who are involved in SICIM activities for any reason whatsoever.
The staff and collaborators are an indispensable resource for the success of the Company and therefore SICIM protects and promotes the value of its human resources, in order to improve and increase the experience and wealth of skills possessed by each collaborator, and guarantees working conditions that respect individual dignity. SICIM is therefore committed to achieving the highest standards of Health and Safety in the workplace, in all its activities and in all countries in which it operates.
