Ethics and Compliance

The STEF Group is built around strong values: Enthusiasm, Respect, Rigour, Performance and ethical rules to which its managers are firmly committed. These values have shaped our culture and enabled us to establish our reputation in our businesses.

Created in 2015 and regularly updated, the Ethics Charter and Business Conduct Charter summarises the commitments and rules of conduct that must guide employees in their day-to-day actions.

The Group's policy is to develop a culture of ethics and compliance in which every employee plays an active role. STEF's Ethics and Business Conduct Charter is therefore addressed to everyone, wherever they are and whatever their activity within the Group.

In order to better disseminate its culture, STEF has put in place a global awareness-raising approach, training, so that everyone has the necessary references and means to defend and maintain ethics in business and finally, a digital alert system.
In particular, STEF has deployed an ethics and business conduct charter and a director's charter.
