Our stakeholders value excellence in governance. We aim to provide greater transparency, applying the highest standards of integrity across the company. Our Compliance function seeks to drive a culture of integrity, with the following priorities:

  • communicate clearly to employees
  • focus on important compliance risk areas
  • improve compliance behavior through training and support
  • ensure that employees can raise concerns and that these are properly addressed
  • ensure fair and objective investigations of potential policy breaches

An example of best practice in governance is our Code of Business Conduct, which was rated among the top 3 codes in Switzerland by KPMG in 2015. The revised Code underpins our commitment to integrity and sets out fundamental rules for interacting with others as we drive our business forward. Supporting policies, standard operating procedures and guidelines provide more detail on how our high-level commitments are to be applied in practice. All Actelion employees have undergone mandatory training to ensure compliance with the Code.

A Code app is installed on all Actelion computers and mobile devices. Incorporating the key principles and the full Code in eleven languages, the app also offers instant access to compliance professionals and includes a practical “Moral Compass”, helping employees to evaluate important ramifications when taking decisions.
