The Anti-Corruption Code of Leonardo Group represents a structured and consistent system of rules, inspired to principles of integrity and transparency, aimed at contrasting risks of illicit practices when conducting business activities. The Code has been approved by the Board of Directors of Leonardo on 21th April 2015, and it has been updated on 8th May 2019.
Recipients of the Anti-Corruption Code are members of the Boards of Directors and Statutory Auditors (or the administrative and control bodies), employees, collaborators and anyone who has contractual relations with Leonardo or the Group Companies. No one excluded.
The Anti-Corruption Code completes the enhancement of internal controls, pursued by the Board of Directors of Leonardo, in compliance with relevant legislation and in line with the international industry best practices, with a special focus on preventing and fighting corruption.
The Corruption Prevention Coordination and Consulting Board, consisting of the Chairman of Leonardo and the Chairmen of the Control and Risk Committee, the Board of Statutory Auditors and the Surveillance Body of Leonardo pursuant to Legislative Decree 231/01, coordinates the offices responsible for verifying compliance with the applicable rules of conduct at Group level, and oversees the application of the Anti-Corruption Code, as well as its update.
In Leonardo Spa there is a specific unit responsible for overseeing the anti-bribery management system, monitoring its functioning, adequacy with respect to the risks and effective implementation as well as for promoting update in case of changes of the applicable law and/or the relevant internal or external factors. The Anti-Corruption unit reports functionally to the Chairman and hierarchically to the Group General Counsel and has direct access to the Top Management and to the corporate bodies, by means of ad hoc information flows.
