Organisational Model Legislative Decree 231/2001

In order to ensure correctness and transparency in conducting company activities, AMA SpA has adopted an “Organisation, Management and Control Model” in line with the provisions of Legislative Decree 231/2001.

The adoption of this Model constitutes, over and above the legal requirements, a further valid tool for raising the awareness of all employees and those who work for and with AMA, with a view to ensuring correct and transparent conduct that is in line with the ethical-social values which inspire the company.

To prepare the Model, AMA analysed its risk areas taking into account the provisions of the Decree and the Guidelines formulated by Confindustria (the General Confederation of Italian Industry).
To supervise the implementation of Model 231/01, the Board of Directors appointed a Supervisory Body responsible for verifying its effectiveness, and its adaptation over time.

Anyone, employees, business partners and third parties who wish to contact the Supervisory Body or report any violations of Model 231/2001 and/or the Code of Ethics can write to organismodivigilanza@ama.it

Con la definizione del Codice Etico, AMA, consapevole dell’importanza del contributo sociale dell’attività d’impresa, riconosce, accetta e condivide l’insieme dei principi e dei valori che devono ispirare le condotte e i comportamenti di coloro che, dall’interno e dall’esterno, operano nella sfera d’azione della Società.
