CORRUPTION, BRIBERY AND ANTI-COMPETITIVE BEHAVIOUR
(i) Commitment to Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery
Carlsberg Group has a zero-tolerance policy against bribery and corruption as we recognise that corruption, especially in cases involving government officials, is one of the key causes of poverty in the world.
We aim to be transparent and an attractive choice for consumers, customers and investors. To this end, the Carlsberg Group has in place an Anti-Bribery and Corruption policy, supplemented by various manuals such as the Anti-Bribery and Corruption manual, Gifts, Entertainment & Donations manual and Third Party Screening manual, to guide the Group in conducting its business in an honest and transparent manner.
For business operations in Malaysia and Singapore, anti-bribery laws are crucial, and they must be strictly complied with to avoid serious financial and reputational consequences. The Group periodically conducts training for employees in addition to raising awareness via internal communications.
It is the Group’s policy that all employees, suppliers, consultants, customers and distributors sign the Anti-Bribery and Corruption declaration before they are employed or engaged by the Group. We have also continued with the mandatory e-learning for all new joiners, with a 100% completion rate in 2022. There were no antibribery and corruption incidents reported in 2022.
