Ethics and Compliance

Ethical code

Malesci is a company that operates in a complex and ever-changing market, interacting with the scientific community, healthcare professionals, patients, government and public structures, employees, suppliers and the community at large.

This creates a high profile of social and moral responsibility that dictates a framework of values based on ethics, transparency, business integrity, high professional quality and a clear focus on service.

The company has established these values and has always been committed to defining and maintaining the highest level of transparency in its business practices and, more generally, to promoting ethical behaviour and fair dealings.

All management and employees have a great sense of responsibility in upholding the principles of integrity, ethics and transparency, and in opposing any sort of action or behaviour that may directly or indirectly encourage or even tolerate, conduct which is not aligned with this culture.

For this reason, the company has implemented a Code of Ethics that clearly and specifically reinforces the principles mentioned above.
Every employee must respect and enforce the Code and reinforce its application through compliant and responsible conduct.

Menarini Group Code of Conduct: integrity and ethics are the foundations of our actions

The Menarini Group Code of Conduct expresses the values that inspire our Group in its work. In no way may the intention of operating in the interest of Menarini, or a direct or indirect subsidiary, justify behaviour which contradicts the principles contained in this Code of Conduct.

This code is not just a collection of words on a sheet of paper, but a direct, concrete guide to inspire the conduct of directors, managers and employees in Italy and abroad, as well as a commitment towards collective, conscious actions with regard to our stakeholders.

The Code of Conduct applies to all Group companies, wherever they are located in the world.
