Saputo Business Ethics

Business Ethics

Our Promise
Since our founding, we have been committed to upholding ethical business practices and expect the everyday conduct of our Board members, leaders and employees to be driven by the same values we share and promote.

 


Code of Ethics

In line with our commitment to continuous improvement, our policies continuously evolve to reflect best practices and the changing needs of our customers and the marketplace. 
 
Accordingly, our Code of Ethics, which guides our day-to-day operations, is periodically reviewed to ensure its alignment with the standards and requirements of all our divisions, and address human rights issues important to our organization. 
 
With our large number of facilities around the world, we also have global monitoring systems in place to ensure all divisions comply with laws, regulations, and industry standards.
 
The confidentiality and privacy of our customers and employees as well as the protection of information systems are key principles in our Code of Ethics. We have made significant progress to mitigate risks by implementing policies, practices, procedures, and controls, which will continue to be a key focus for us over the next three years. 

Transparency

We know that transparency can only be achieved through open communications, and we recognize the importance of accountability to all our stakeholders, including employees, shareholders, customers, consumers, suppliers, partners, and authorities.
 
To this end, our corporate governance initiatives ensure the highest level of independence, disclosure, and transparency. Among these initiatives, we have adopted an anonymous and confidential whistleblowing line hosted by a third party, an Incentive Compensation Clawback Policy, and a Shareholder Communication and Engagement Policy.

We continue to make progress in increasing transparency and disclosure to investors and other stakeholders as it relates to our ESG governance and the efforts made towards our Promise, which can be found in our Annual Information Form, our Management Information Circular, and our Annual Saputo Promise Report.
