This Guide outlines the standards of conduct that support our commitment to integrity — a commitment that requires that we conduct our business in an ethically responsible manner that respects and protects our relationships with our associates, our customers, our shareholders, and our communities.
This Guide is the core of a comprehensive compliance network that supports and encourages ethical business conduct. It is a tool that can help to make sound business decisions in accordance with the ethical and legal standards that define our business and upon which our reputation is based. This Guide does not incorporate or refer to all Delhaize Group policies, but acts as a synthesis of the key policies and principles that should govern all associates´ business conduct.
For over 140 years, our commitment to integrity has been foundational to our success. Today, as a global company, we are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen in every country and community where we do business. Integrity is more important than ever as we make decisions and empower each and every associate to conduct our business "the right way, every day.”
We also expect our franchisees, vendors and outside consultants -such as business, financial, technical or legal advisors - to be guided by these standards.
The Guide is also available in the following languages: Bahasa Indonesian, Dutch, French, Greek and Romanian.
