Blacknight is committed to the highest standards of transparency and business conduct. We act in a responsible way, based on our Code of Business Ethics. We advocate free and fair trade, striving for open and fair competition and ethical conditions within the legal frameworks of the countries where we do business.
The purpose of this Policy is to set common standards for all Blacknight business regarding compliance with our zero-tolerance policy towards any form of bribery and corruption, and in compliance with local laws of the countries where Blacknight do business.
This Policy relates to anti-bribery and corruption and applies to all employees of Blacknight.
Blacknight will strive to fully adopt these principles in all operations in which Blacknight has management control. We will also use our influence to promote the principles in other companies who deal with Blacknight.
The following principles apply for the activities under this Policy:
All procurement activities at Blacknight are performed in compliance with the Procurement Process, which clearly states the basic principles for a fair selection of suppliers and segregation of duties.
The Supplier Code of Conduct includes a strict prohibition for all forms of corruption, including but not limited to extortion, bribery, facilitation payments, nepotism, fraud and money laundering.
Any Blacknight employee who suspects violations of The Code of Business Ethics or this policy must speak up and raise the issue to their line manager, or directly to the CEO. Speaking up is encouraged when an employee, in good faith, believes they have observed or are aware of a potential violation of The Code of Business Ethics, this policy or the law. Should an employee wish to remain anonymous Blacknight will provide a drop-box for anonymous disclosure which is located in our Carlow headquarters in the canteen area.
When an employee does speak up, Blacknight expressly forbids any form of retaliation. Any action or behaviour that could be seen as a violation of this Policy must be promptly and appropriately handled, either by being corrected or reported for further handling.
