Legislative Decree 231, Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct

Organisational, management and control model

Legislative Decree 231 of 8 June 2001 introduced the concept of administrative responsibility for entities – including joint stock companies – into Italian law, covering certain offences committed by directors, executives or employees in the interests or for the benefit of the entity.

Aware of the need to ensure the propriety and transparency of the Company’s business dealings and operations, Atlantia SpA has adopted an Organisational Model, with a view to establishing a system of rules and controls designed to prevent commission of the offences covered by the Decree.

The Model applies to all of Atlantia’s employees and anyone who interacts with the Company, with the aim of ensuring that they conduct themselves in full compliance with the law and in keeping with the ethical and social values adopted by the Company in the pursuit of its objectives.
