DBS depends on its reputation for competence and integrity.
Our adherence to strict ethical standards has contributed in a very significant way to both the professionalism and the credibility of DBS in the international maritime market. Anything damaging our reputation for integrity and competence must be avoided.
Every employee is expected to act in accordance with the highest standards of ethics. Our employees and associates realize that their activities will reflect on the Organization as a whole. The responsibility for the reputation of DBS depends on each and every one of us.
Ethics is a set of rules of conduct people agree to abide by. With our diverse personal backgrounds, we do not assume that those rules are self-evident to anyone. We have therefore documented a Code of Ethical Business.
Our Code of Ethical Business is not meant to be a set of instructions but rather to provide documented guidance to our world-wide employees which may guide them in their professional but also private life. The observance of this Code is an essential measure for ensuring the continued safeguarding of our reputation.
Our Code of Ethical Business has been concentrated in the following areas:
→ Conflict of Interest
→ Corrupt Practices
→ Political Lobbying
→ Civil Activities and Charitable Contributions
→ Alcohol and Drug Abuse
→ Undue Pressure
We continuously review and revise the Code to ensure that is always updated and covers the current challenges of our Organization.
