Ensuring that Colas employees and third parties conduct themselves in an ethical manner is essential to upholding the Group’s values. Colas has reinforced its compliance culture by identifying risks of corruption and human rights violations, continually raising awareness of ethics and compliance rules, and implementing controls to ensure that procedures are followed correctly.

    Identifying risks of corruption and human rights violations and implementing appropriate action plans

    After mapping corruption risks, an action plan is drawn up and adapted to each entity. In 2021, this approach will be adapted to cover human rights-related risks.

    Implementing rules of ethical conduct

    After drafting compliance documentation and developing tools and materials to help with the implementation process, training and communication campaigns are launched at all levels of the Group.

    Applying ethics and compliance procedures

    Compliance procedures are now available in digital format via the Group’s own e-Comply tool, making it easier to apply them on a daily basis at all Group entities.
