Values and Codes of Ethics

Our values

  • People. The main value is our team. This is our “family” that we care about, develop, protect, support, and inspire. We also value our partners and customers on all continents and build long-term relationships with them.
  • Reliability. We value our experience, reputation, and good name, which is synonymous with reliability. We are unfamiliar with the word “force majeure” because we are stronger than crises, and we always deliver on our commitments because our business continuity plans are designed to be challenged. We are happy to broadcast our reliability to our customers and partners.
  • Stability in development. We stand steadily on the ground and move forward, always having reliable support underneath: our intellectual, emotional, and financial capital. Both in life and in business, we choose reliable solutions and if we take risks, then it is always controlled and justified. This allows us not only to develop in the seething stream of world-wide changes but also to feel comfortable in it.

We are broad-minded and erudite, and that helps us to be in the right place at the right time. Our team members harmoniously complement each other to obtain synergy in our work.
  • Global responsibility. Our business exists not only to make money but also to help the planet. We are socially and environmentally responsible. We are involved in charity work and especially support family values. We do not serve clients whose business destroys people, family, nature, or their harmonious connection, for example, military organizations or tobacco industrу.
  • Honour. We are law-abiding, and we value ethical principles even more. We do not allow conflicts of interest within the company, with partners and clients. We do not lure away employees from other companies and we act honestly with competitors. We respect and study all forms of morality, from ancient religions to modern social norms.
