“Do concluded agreements take into account provisions pertaining to rules of ethics and observance of human rights? Please specify what they pertain to and when they are located.”
Comment made during a dialogue session
The Code is a collection of principles both for the PZU Group and for its all suppliers. It is a material criterion for qualification and assessment of potential suppliers from the perspective of observance of human rights, natural environment protection, professional ethics and personal data protection.
The PZU Group conducts business activity observing generally prevailing provisions of law and respecting human rights. The PZU Group attains this objective through confirming these rules in its procurement policy, information protection procedures, occupational safety and health procedures, instructions and internal guidelines of the PZU Group.
The PZU Group is committed to limit the negative effects of its activity on the natural environment through implementation of environmental initiatives, engaging employees in environmental protection efforts, and expects that each group supplier complies the same environmental protection principles, in particular as regards consumption of raw materials and natural resources, consumption of paper and appropriate waste management.
The PZU Group’s professional ethics reflects the vision and values that the company pursues on a daily basis. These values define the standards in daily operations and are aimed at supporting the strategic vision of development of the PZU Group. Individual companies have in place internal procedures and policies for prevention of corruption, conflict of interest and disclosure of confidential information.
The PZU Group ensures the security of its data and protection of personal data of its clients. It understands the complexity of the obligations following from the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and makes sure all of its processes are compliant with the Regulation and local personal data protection regulations. The PZU Group expects an equally mature approach from its business partners.
