We are committed to conducting our business in a manner that is fair, right, and ethical.

Acting fairly and ethically in all markets where we conduct business is of the utmost importance in achieving business and operational excellence at WE Soda.

At WE Soda, we are committed to maintaining an effective and robust compliance program, which is managed by a dedicated and independent Compliance function and which actively supports the mitigation of potential compliance risk and ensures we comply with all applicable national and international laws and regulations within the countries we operate.

Our business Ethics Policy, Supplier Code of Conduct and other Company’s Policies require our employees, core contractors and any third parties acting for, or on behalf of, the company to not commit, authorise or be involved in bribery, corruption, fraud or other economic crimes. These policies sets as well clear rules and expectations regarding third-party management, conflicts of interest, facilitation payments, health and safety, Human Dignity and Labour, donations and community support.
