The Code of Ethics: a high profile of social and moral responsibility

F.I.R.M.A. is a company that operates in a complex and constantly evolving market context, interacting with the scientific community healthcare professionals, patients, public bodies and structures, employees, suppliers and the community.
This entails a high-profile social and moral responsibility that imposes a framework of values based on ethics, transparency, fairness in business, high professional quality, and service orientation.

The company is based on these principles and has always been committed to defining and maintaining high levels of transparency in the management and conduct of business and, more generally, to promoting ethical behaviour and correctness in its relationships.
The management and all employees are deeply responsible for maintaining the culture of integrity, ethics, and transparency, strongly opposing attitudes and actions that could favour or even tolerate, directly or indirectly, behaviours not in line with the aforementioned culture.

For this reason the Company has adopted a Code of Ethics that clearly and in detail reinforces the principles outlined above. Every employee is required to respect and enforce said Code and to strengthen its application through compliant and responsible behaviour.

The Group’s Code of Conduct: integrity and ethics as the foundation of our actions.

The Menarini Group’s Code of Conduct lays down the values that inspire our Group in its work. In no way can the conviction of acting in the interests of Menarini, or of a directly or indirectly controlled company, justify the adopting of behaviours contrary to the principles set forth in the Code.
We are convinced that always putting integrity and ethics at the foundation of our actions is our strength and the key to increasingly greater success.
