Ethics and anti-corruption
Naval Group is committed to promoting a culture of integrity and is constantly stepping up its vigilance on key aspects of the fight against corruption and influence peddling.
Reviewed annually, the risk map forms the basis to the compliance system and mobilises all the players concerned. The Chairman and CEO of Naval Group personally follows this approach, based on the principle of zero tolerance. Anti-corruption governance also involves the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.
Since its creation in early 2015, the Group Ethics, Compliance and Governance Department has been dedicated to fighting corruption wherever the group operates. It is overseen by a Chief Compliance Officer, who is the group's actual compliance expert. This compliance task force is organised into three divisions: definition of the system; operational deployment in France and abroad; internal control and investigations. In the field, the network of compliance officers works as closely as possible with the operational teams to guide and support them.
Whistleblowing without prejudice
Naval Group employees and stakeholders who are victims of, or witness to, inappropriate behaviour may raise the alert via a system that guarantees the confidentiality of their request and of the data reported. With email@example.com, the group is committed to impartial processing of alerts and offers each and everyone the possibility to speak in complete confidence and without risk.
