Annual report 2012

Revised Code of Business Ethics

Telekom Slovenije’s revised Code of Business Ethics was adopted in 2012. The code defined the core principles and rules by which employees, members of the Supervisory Board and other persons performing work for the Company are bound to act. Other Group companies have their own codes of ethics. The code includes the principles of ethical operations, relations between employees, with the employer, customers, shareholders and the wider community, the protection of information and data, and the principles of communication. It represents the standard for the functioning, governance and management of the parent company and other companies in the Group.

Telekom Slovenije’s Code of Business Ethics is accessible at the website www.telekom.si

In accordance with the code, the Telekom Slovenije Group respects the dignity of employees and rejects all forms of indirect or direct discrimination as stated in the code. We have found no evidence of the possible use of child or forced labour in any of the activities of Group companies or at suppliers. 

Ensuring equal opportunities for employees regardless of personal circumstances is also one of the principles of Telekom Slovenije’s governance policy. Mechanisms for identifying potential discrimination are set out in the codes of business ethics of the parent company and subsidiaries. Subsidiaries in Slovenia have an agreement on a system for the prevention and elimination of the consequences of harassment. Work procedures are defined consistently at One with the aim of preventing discrimination. At Ipko, these mechanisms are set out in the code of conduct, while an email address has been set up where confidential complaints regarding discrimination may be sent.

No cases of discrimination were recorded at Group companies.
