Roche’s integrity depends on the behaviour of its employees
Business integrity is defined as both the actual and the perception of ethical behaviour in business that is in line with the Roche Group Code of Conduct and our commitment to run our business in a socially responsible way.
Business integrity means first and foremost that we adhere to all applicable laws and regulations as well as to the high integrity standards set forth by Roche. Complying with these standards is the right thing to do and a prerequisite for Roche’s sustainable success.
Our stakeholders expect us to behave with integrity in all our business.
Adhering to our high integrity standards might lead to a loss of business in some cases. However, we are sure that doing so provides us with a business advantage.
Every Roche employee contributes to Roche’s integrity as a company through his/her conduct.
Since Roche is doing business on a worldwide basis, employee misconduct in one country may have negative implications for Roche globally.
The terms and conditions that determine the appropriate behaviour in business must be assessed on a case-by-case basis by taking into consideration the relevant parameters of each individual case. Since legal standards evolve over time, a constant reassessment of the required business behaviour is necessary.
Roche gives its employees and its business partners the appropriate information, instruction, education, guidance and support they need to comply with Roche’s standards of business integrity.
