Operating on the basis of the group’s business ethics (PORR code of ethics) and corporate values (PORR spirits), the compliance organisation is responsible for ensuring legally compliant conduct and adherence to the Austrian Code of Corporate Governance. This is ensured by means of the compliance management system (PORRCMS) for the implementation of internal guidelines (e.g. anti-corruption guidelines).
Cooperation with the internal audit, HR and legal departments, as well as with group management, is a key factor in ensuring that the compliance organisation operates effectively. As a listed company, PORR AG must also comply with all of the provisions of the Austrian Stock Exchange Act and the EU market abuse regulation (“MAR”) applicable since 3 July 2016. This is an essential part of the compliance function and organisation.
All PORR compliance rules are fully applicable at PORR SUISSE AG and are implemented accordingly.
