The Code of Ethics, adopted in 2007, expresses the identity of the Bank, its mission and reference values, as well as the principles it adopts in relations with its stakeholders.

The Corporate Social Responsibility structure periodically presents a report to the Management Control Committee on the state of implementation of the Code of Ethics, on critical issues and reports from stakeholders as well as on the consequent expected corrective actions.

The assessment of critical issues takes place on the basis of what emerges from a periodic assessment carried out by a specialized and independent consultancy company to assess the consistency of the corporate management processes with the values ​​of the Code of Ethics. The report to the Governing Bodies also includes the summary of reports by stakeholders of violations of company principles and values.
