A constant striving for excellence and innovation and the steady pursuit of challenging goals and a unique, distinctive style represent the driving forces behind the success of Moncler. But more is needed. Enduring success cannot exist without ethics and responsibility. Moncler calls on all its employees and managers to act with honesty, passion and integrity and to build a relationship with stakeholders based on reciprocal trust, to ensure that growth is steered by the principle of shared value. Firmly convinced that the success of a company goes hand in hand with ethical business conduct, the Group has adopted its own Code of Ethics, applied without exception across all the Countries in which the Group operates. The Code of Ethics is a pillar of the Group’s corporate governance system. It outlines the principles and guidelines that inspire the Company in its day-to-day activities and which guide the conduct of its employees, managers and the various contractors who work with Moncler in fulfilling their duties and responsibilities. The Code of Ethics identifies, shares and promotes ethical business practices in all economic, social and environmental fields and features sections dedicated to the different stakeholders – employees, customers, suppliers and the environment itself. The Code of Ethics is also a fundamental and integral part of the Organisation, Management and Control Model (“Model”) adopted by Moncler S.p.A. in accordance with Italian Legislative Decree 231/2001. The Organisation, Management and Control Model sets forth the principles, rules of conduct, operating procedures and disciplinary measures designed to prevent corporate crime and ensure the ethical conduct of all those who act on behalf of the Company, upholding the principles of legitimacy, propriety and transparency. Compliance with the Code of Ethics and the Organisation, Management and Control Model is monitored by designated supervisory bodies through audits and specific checks, which may also be triggered on the basis of reports of behaviour that does not comply with the principles of conduct required by Moncler. Audit findings may lead to disciplinary measures which, depending on the severity of the case, can also result in dismissal. The Supervisory Body is tasked with supervising in Italy the suitability of and compliance with the Organisation, Management and Control Model and its underlying principles. The body is collegial in form, consisting of three members – two external professionals with expertise in the accounting and legal fields and the head of the Group’s Internal Audit division. The Supervisory Body lies at the apex of the company’s organisational structure to ensure its independence and free it from potential interference and/or conditioning. Internal Audit activities in 2015, with regard to the Group’s Italian companies, involved the auditing of key corporate processes (payments, purchases, etc.) and of the main “sensitive” areas identified by the Model. As concerns international subsidiaries, in 2015 the Group’s Internal Audit division conducted audits on the management of accounting risks at the operating companies in the United States, China, Hong Kong and France, aimed at identifying and/or preventing any potential cases of fraud. With regard to the management of store operations, in 2015 the Internal Audit division audited more than 30 stores, selected on the basis of the significance of their turnover, level of risk and geographic diversification. The audits enabled improvements to be introduced to existing operating and control procedures. In 2015 a total of three breaches of the Code of Ethics were identified, which led to the application of disciplinary measures and the strengthening of internal procedures. Moncler treats reports of specific cases of non-compliance with the Code of Ethics, whether by employees or external entities, as serious. Any employee who reports, in good faith, suspicious, alleged or effective breaches of the Code of Ethics is protected by Moncler against any form of retaliation, discrimination or penalisation, without prejudice to statutory obligations in force and the rights of the Company or people falsely or mistakenly accused of misconduct. Accordingly, in 2016 the Group has launched a whistleblowing system, designed to ensure the proper management and swift verification of any breaches reported, the adoption of appropriate measures and the anonymity of the whistleblower. The Code of Ethics is disseminated to employees using the most appropriate means, in keeping with local practices.
