O2 is a responsible company and expects the same of its employees. As part of their mandatory training, employees are made aware of the importance of anti-corruption rules and the possible implications of illegal conduct.
O2 has established rules for receiving and delivering gifts. If an employee accepts a gift or presents it to someone in the course of business, they are required to register the gift in the context of transparency. In certain situations, internal policies expressly forbid accepting and donating gifts - especially if it is to influence someone's decision or if it could be interpreted as such.
We attribute equal importance to the rules governing conflict of interest. O2 places emphasis on internal rules for approving contracts, resolution of potential conflicts of interest and control mechanisms, which it considers to be practical tools to prevent misconduct.
