CREDIBILITY, TRUST, HONESTY, TRANSPARENCY AND RESPECT

INTRODUCTION

Drogas Vigo is committed to creating a culture that promotes and stimulates honesty, transparency, sustainability, experience and cultural diversity. At Drogas Vigo, we believe that our pursuit of success should always be based on creating and promoting an environment of trust and respect with its employees, suppliers, customers, authorities and any person or entity with whom we interact. These principles have created a culture in which integrity is an essential element in the development of our business activity. This culture has been embodied in our Code of Conduct, in which we describe the core values and business ethics that are embraced and respected throughout our organization. Our Code of Conduct does not aim to respond to each of the many individualised situations to which our employees could potentially be exposed on a day-to-day basis. The Code of Conduct fulfills the function of being able to alert of those situations that our employees consider could have ethical or legal implications that must always be respected, for which they have received the necessary training in order to help them to take the correct decisions in front of any situation of this nature.

HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

Drogas Vigo considers the respect and protection of the health and safety of its employees and external collaborators to be of the utmost importance.

Drogas Vigo is committed to respecting the Health and Safety of all its employees and external collaborators, as well as to respecting the environment, extending this commitment to those people who provide their services within our working environment, and as far as possible we make an effort to collaborate with our clients in order to help them integrate this philosophy into their own procedures. This commitment also applies to all matters relating to respect for the environment.

ETHICAL PRINCIPLES IN BUSINESS

Drogas Vigo considers that it is extremely important that all its employees demonstrate the highest levels of personal integrity under any circumstances in which they may find themselves, during the development of their professional functions.

DV has rules to ensure that its employees respect areas relating to the management of sensitive aspects such as illegal payments/gifts and conflict of interest situations. An alert procedure is in place to make it easier for employees to easily communicate situations that they believe affect respect for ethical business principles.

COMPLIANCE WITH ALL LAWS AND REGULATIONS

Drogas Vigo is firmly committed to the principle of free competition and regularly trains its employees regarding competition law in order to help all its employees know and comply with the provisions of such laws.

There is a training plan for employees regarding respect for and compliance with the laws regulating the mercantile traffic of some of the products, such as, for example, the law on drug precursors, explosives, and chemical weapons.

SUSTAINABILITY

Drogas Vigo considers that sustainability goes beyond compliance with the laws and regulations in force, for which it has incorporated the concept of Sustainable Distribution into the first place of its Strategic Business Principles, understanding this concept as the will to satisfy present needs without putting at risk those of future generations.

Drogas Vigo works permanently to improve areas such as product protection / technical support to customers to optimize their formulations, search for improvements in the supply chain aimed at reducing the CO2 footprint, energy optimization and waste management. In addition to these important areas, Drogas Vigo continues to dedicate permanent efforts with the community to improve the knowledge of the sustainability aspects of the chemical distribution business. To this end, Drogas Vigo organizes student visits to the facilities and collaborates actively with the University.
