Code of Ethics

More and more businesses today are called to take on a wider responsibility that does not end with the economic effects of their activity, but that covers a variety of interests relevant to the conservation of the natural environment, of health, work, and future well-being of the entire community and the integrity of the system of social relations.

Along and parallel to the company’s range of interests, there has also been an increase in the number of stakeholders with which the company must relate.

All internal and external parties that interface with the Company in the conduct of its business should, therefore, be recognized as partners - or stakeholders - both because they contribute, in various and specific ways, to the achievement of company goals, and because such activities affect them positively or negatively.

These people are clients, shareholders, suppliers and employees, but also the entire community.

Kirchner Italia S.p.A. has therefore decided to adopt a Code of Ethics with the intent to formalize and crystallize the values in which it believes and which directs its activities.
