2.2 Rapporti con i fornitori
I nostri fornitori rappresentano un elemento fondamentale dei nostri obiettivi di qualità e di servizio alla clientela. La
fiducia dei fornitori nei confronti di SOSALT è un portato della nostra affidabilità e lealtà e condiziona spesso anche la puntualità
dei servizi e l’immagine esterna che l’Azienda fornisce ai propri clienti. Preservare e costruire la fiducia dei fornitori è pertanto
un fattore chiave per il successo di SOSALT che deve esse perseguito da ogni dipendente. Nella fase di esecuzione dei contratti i
dipendenti e i collaboratori hanno l’obbligo di negoziare le condizioni contrattuali con oggettività (che deve essere
documentata), lealtà e trasparenza nel perseguimento delle migliori condizioni per l’Azienda. Nella selezione dei fornitori è
pertanto necessario che i dipendenti seguano i criteri di valutazione concorrenziale del merito e delle condizioni di fornitura,
rivolgendosi ad una pluralità di potenziali fornitori ogni qualvolta ciò sia possibile, documentando sempre i criteri di scelta,
seguendo rigorosamente le direttive anticorruzione e le leggi anti trust. Ciascuno opererà riservando, a parità di condizioni
economiche e di qualità, uguale trattamento alle imprese che vengono in contatto con SOSALT astenendosi dall’accordare
prestazioni o trattamenti che non siano normalmente accordati ad altri. E’ obbligatorio attenersi scrupolosamente alle
procedure contabili aziendali del ciclo passivo e la relativa contabilizzazione deve essere conclusa nei tempi previsti dalla legge.

  1. Interpretation of the Code
    The Code reinforces SOSALT's culture of integrity and compliance by explaining what the Recipients' commitments
    are and what the company expects from them. SOSALT SpA is committed to the adoption of appropriate procedures, regulations or instructions designed to
    ensure that the values affirmed herein are reflected in the concrete behaviors of it and all Recipients and by their respective

    requires further clarification. When in doubt or when there is a suspected violation of these principles, even if it is a minor
    matter, it is important to highlight the problem early to give the company an opportunity to address it and
    correct it before it causes lasting damage.
    The Codes and Procedures do not cover every situation that may occur, nor do they eliminate the need to use good
    sense and professional judgment. When in doubt about what to do, it may be helpful to ask yourself the following questions:
    o Is it the right thing to do?
    o Is it legal and does it seem consistent with our values and Code?
    o Does it reflect well on our company?
    o Am I acting in the best interests of the company?
    o Would I be comfortable if my actions were made public?
    o Will it protect SOSALT's reputation as an ethical company?
    o Do my decisions put consumers, our customers, or our suppliers at risk?
    If the answer is "no" to even one of these questions or if you have any doubt, it is best to stop and seek advice.
