In 2018, we once again had our compliance management system certified with a focus on anti-corruption measures. This is our way of ensuring that we can confront risks consistently and that we have established effective processes in the company. Since 2016 25 international companies have been were certified.
The certification focused on processes in Procurement, Sales, HR, and Mergers & Acquisitions, on the one hand, and on events, donations, and sponsorships on the other. The potential danger of corruption is greatest in these areas. Auditors investigated the efficacy of the compliance management system and verified it without any reservations. We document details regarding audit content and corporate departments that have undergone anti-corruption audits in our audit report.
